Order of Service – Sunday January 16, 2022 @ 10:30AM
We continue our live broadcast this morning online. There will be no in-person attendance for the time being. We are broadcasting live from the sanctuary and will seek to have no more than 10 people in the sanctuary on Sundays (Rev. John, Fred, Choir members, and Tech Team). We will continue to follow all directions from the Government and our Public Health Unit as things change. Thank you for your patience and understanding through these challenging times. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this morning’s service.
Join us on our St. Andrew’s Guelph YouTube Channel and select the live service, and remember to invite your friends and families. You can also join us via Zoom by following the link in your Friday or Sunday morning email. If you’d like to begin receiving our weekly emails you can sign up here.
