Those involved in the community life of St. Andrew’s meet new people, make new friends, and develop lasting relationships with others. We believe that the adventure of faith is an ongoing process of discovery and growth that continues throughout all of life. Our adult programs provide opportunities for people to participate in studies and discussions of varied subject matter and duration of time.
Below are the regular Adult ministries that are run at St. Andrew’s.
During the months of September to June, here are the regular Adult Ministry programs:
Sunday: Worship Gathering @ 10:30am; children and youth attend the Worship & a Children’s Prayer and then depart for their Program. (Our KIDZ CHURCH/CHAOS Teachers are taking a break over the summer. Children will remain in Sanctuary. Children’s Activity Packs are available from the Ushers. Classes will resume in September.)
Monday: Monday Night Bible Study will resume in September
Tuesday: Women’s Fellowship will meet every other week until July 31, then will resume in September

Saturday: CONNECT*GROW*SERVE: A men’s small group meeting on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month (9 -10:30 am) for connecting, encouraging one another in the Word, prayer and empowering each other to serve. We are reading through the Gospel of Mark at the moment. We meet in the Fireside Room. Please feel free to connect with the team; Mike Murdoch, Bertie Enochs or Pye Chew or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We consider this partnership with families in the task of caring for and training their children to be of great importance. We offer you an ever-expanding ministry that takes place each week: Sunday morning during our service time and special events held at certain times of the year.
Children and Youth ages two through high school join us for the initial part of the Worship Service and then go to an age-graded program.
KIDZ CHURCH/CHAOS SUMMER BREAK
Our KIDZ CHURCH/CHAOS Teachers are taking a break over the summer. Children will remain in Sanctuary. Children’s Activity Packs are available from the Ushers. Classes will resume in September.
We have regular toddler care available for children under the age of three. We also have an unsupervised Nursery for any parents needing a quiet place to attend to their babies during the service. There is a speaker in the Nursery to facilitate listening to the service.
On Sunday we seek to provide a broad-based learning opportunity for children through high school that runs concurrently with the Sunday Service of Worship. This program runs according to the academic year with a Kickoff Sunday launching the school year on the second Sunday of September. Graduation Sunday concludes the year’s program activities in mid-June.
Our Sunday Children’s Ministry begins with children and youth of all ages joining their families in the main auditorium for the initial part of our Service of Worship. This segment of the Service is primarily musical and consisting of contemporary praise selections and high congregational participation. There is a Dialogue with the young or a special lesson for the children before they leave for their own program.
Our Sunday Children’s Ministry is divided into Kidz Church and our Youth Program. To learn more about the Youth Program, scroll down. Kidz Church is separated by age and grade into two departments as outlined below.
- Primary: Elementary Department includes Kindergarten through to Grade 6. The published curriculum is Gen-ON Ministries. Ongoing special events include art projects, pizza day, scavenger hunt and game day.
- Chaos (Christ Has All Our Solutions): Our junior youth class includes Grades 7 to 8. The published curriculum is Faith Alive and it is geared to the young teen with many open discussion forums. This group participates in dramas for presentation to younger classes and the congregation.
Children’s programs held weekly at St. Andrew’s by the 3rd Streetsville Scouting troup:
Scouts & Venturers – Mondays at 7pm
Beavers – Tuesdays at 7pm
We’re a faith-based group of enthusiastic, energetic, and caring young people that have the desire to follow after Jesus Christ!
