A NEW OUTREACH MINISTRY is taking shape at St. Andrew’s, replacing our former gift card distribution. We are transforming a downstairs room into a cupboard for non-perishable food and household supplies. We could use your help, through donations and volunteer availability. The current plan is to be open once a week for two hours. If you are interested, please speak with Deacon Kay or Fr. Matt.

THE ALTAR GUILD has an important ministry in setting up and cleaning up before and after or liturgies, and they could use two or three new members. This is open to both men and women, and everything is very learnable. If you are interested, or would like some more detail, contact the church office: 519-743-0911 or standrewskitchener@gmail.com

LONG WEEKEND SUNDAY SERVICES OF JULY AND AUGUST will be held at St. Stephen Lutheran (Highland & Stirling), with July 1 being an Anglican liturgy, and August 5 being a Lutheran one. (We will ensure that St. Andrew’s collection envelopes are collected and brought back here!)

WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING Joe Mancini as our guest preacher on Sunday, July 29 at our 10:00 AM service. Joe is co-founder of The Working Centre, and recipient of the Benemerenti Medal (a papal honour) and the Order of Canada. It is expected that he will very much ‘bring alive’ the day’s Gospel story, the multiplication of the loaves and fishes.

THE ANGLICAN MINISTRY AT THE GRAND VALLEY INSTITUTION FOR WOMEN is growing! We are hoping to continue with a monthly eucharist, but add prayer services on the other weeks, at 2:00 PM. This small team would be led by Cheryl Highmore of Trinity Anglican Church in Cambridge. If you are interested in learning more, please speak to Fr. Matt.

DIOCESAN GOLF TOURNAMENT (all proceeds go to the diocese’s outreach fund): Saturday, September 8 in Dorchester, near London. If there is interest in assembling one or two teams of four, let Fr. Matt know in the next week or so. $140 per golfer, which includes dinner.

DROP IN FOR COFFEE WITH YOUR PRIEST! Each Tuesday from 7:30 – 9:30 AM you’ll find Matt at the Tim Hortons in the Laurentian Zehrs (Ottawa & Strasburg). Pop by for some relaxed conversation. (Cancellations will be listed on the church website and Facebook page.

COMMUNITY POTLUCK with Member of Parliament Raj Saini, the first Sunday of every month from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM. A casual gathering in which we are invited to bring some food to share, and meet with other members of the community, and our MP. 209 Frederick Street (enter via the back door).

DO WE HAVE YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS, for periodic parish-related communication? If not, or if you’re not sure, please contact the office. We’d like to send out the occasional event notification, and have e-mail addresses on hand in the event of cancellations.

“EXPLORING THE BIBLE” DISCUSSION GROUP  On Summer Vacation-will resume Sep 12, 2018
Do you ever wonder on a Sunday morning what the Bible readings are supposed to be telling you? February 14 through March 28 the Group will look at how Outreach/Reaching Out affects not only our lives here at St. Andrew’s but within our community and in the wider world. Join us each Wednesday morning in Janke Hall from 10 – 11:30. Bible knowledge is not necessary as we talk and learn together. Not sure if it’s a fit for you? All are welcome to sit and listen. Contact John & Kay Baxter, 519-954-1144, for more information.

OUR OFFICIAL FACEBOOK PAGE (facebook.com/StAndrewsKitchener) If you have a Facebook account, help spread the word about our wonderful community by “liking” our page, or “sharing” posts with your Facebook friends.The page is also accessible to those who do not have Facebook accounts.

ALTAR FLOWERS Placing flowers in the church is a wonderful way to celebrate an anniversary, birthday, or other special event in your life. It is also how many people choose to remember someone who has died. There are many ways to do this at St. Andrews:

  • Two arrangements at the high altar (usually $80 and up);
  • One small arrangement on the Holy Table ($40 and up);
  • Two silk arrangements at the High Altar (donation of any size).

Please contact the church office (519-743-0911) for specifics, and if you have any questions … and be sure to reserve your chosen date on the flower chart on th emain doors at the back of the worship space.

HALL FOR RENT Our parish hall is available for rent to members and their friends for Birthdays, Anniversaries, Showers and any other social event requiring a large meeting space. Rates are very reasonable and the kitchen may also be used. Please note, if any non-parishioners will be attending, a separate fee of $54 will be required for insurance purposes. For inquiries or reservations please call the church office. (519 743-0911).

MILK BAGS Believe it or not, those 4 litre bags hosting 3 11/3 litre milk bags are actually useful; an Anglican Church in Grand Bend is knitting them into sleeping mats. So, keep bringing them in! And if you have anything else that you think might be useful, or helpful, ask one of the clergy; you might be surprised how your waste is someone else’s treasure.

PRAYER CHAIN There is a small group of parishioners who are committed to pray daily for the needs of our Parish in general, and individuals, upon request, in particular. Call the Church office (743-0911) with prayer requests.
