UPDATE: Friday March 20

Reminder: There will be NO Worship Services at St. Andrew’s on Sunday March 22 and March 29. Please continue to check our website, these emails, our Facebook Page and CJOY/Magic 106.1 for any future cancellations.


In Person worship might be cancelled but we can still worship TOGETHER (at a distance)! 

Join us on Sunday at 10:30AM using Zoom – 
for a LIVE worship experience with ME (Rev. John). It will be simple but worshipful and you will have the opportunity to interact on the comments section of the site. Using Zoom allows us to record the service so that we can send it in the days that follow to those who weren’t able to join us.

The plan will be that I will open the meeting at 10AM. You can join then and connect with folks and learn how to use the platform. Peter Devries will be helping me – monitoring the chat for technical issues, and recording the worship service portion, etc.

At 10:30AM, I will start the worship service. You are welcome to join at that time. It will be an annotated service, informal, with prayers, Scripture, an adapted sermon and a blessing. 

After the service, at about 11AM, I will remain on and allow for any further social connections to occur through video, speech or chat.

Don’t forget your favourite beverage – you are at home after all!

You can choose if you want to be seen through video or not, it isn’t necessary. You can also choose to simply call in using the phone and listen in that way by calling one of the numbers listed in the ZOOM invitation. We are experimenting here and will try our best to provide some Spiritual refreshment for the week that was. Hope to be with you on Sunday morning.

In addition, our friends in Christ – Two Rivers Church – are encouraging their community to share an adapted “Daily Office” for prayer. They are committing to pray throughout the day a set prayer (as the ancient church did and still occurs in some Christian communities). Here’s a link to their website that outlines the times of day and the prayers that are set for each time. May we gain strength and courage in the knowledge that we are united in prayer throughout the day. You can find it here: https://www.tworiverschurch.ca/#/daily-community-prayer/

See you on Sunday at 10ish… 1030 for our worship service on ZOOM.

Grace and peace,
John.
