DEANERY-WIDE CONFIRMATION SERVICE: Sunday, April 15 at 7:00 PM. A service bringing together Anglicans from KW, Cambridge, and the surrounding area, to be with Bishop Linda at a service of the sacrament of Confirmation. This service also includes rites of Reception (into the Anglican Communion) and Reaffirmation (of one’s faith). If you feel that you are being called to undertake one of these rites, or simply to get more information, please speak to Fr. Matt. Location to be announced.

FURNACE UPDATE: We are pleased that so many have responded to the call to support the costs associated with the recent furnace replacement. We just have to raise about $1500 more in order to cover the full costs of the service. We can do it!

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.

SUPPORT FOR OUT OF THE COLD: This year we once again collect and pass along (new) socks and financial donations to Out of the Cold. We’ll have a clearly-marked basket set up outside the main doors at the back of the nave.

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” STUDY GROUP 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.

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.
