Our Rejuvenate 190 campaign wrapped up at our 190th Celebration Sunday (April 29) and we are delighted to report that we exceeded our goal and raised $196,000. Thank you for your generosity and commitment to seeing this campaign to its conclusion. We look forward to seeing how these funds beautify and restore our beloved sanctuary. These efforts wouldn’t have been possible without the dedication of our Rejuvenate 190 Team: Troy Riddell, Brian and Kathleen Black, Gwen Gooyers, Lonny Howard and Ernie Kaethler.
We are looking to fill in some dates for the summer for greeting as well as helping to process the Sunday offering. A sign up sheet is posted at the Welcome Centre with the dates needed or contact the church office.
St Andrews has been worshipping in Guelph for 190 years! We celebrated our 190th Anniversary with a delicious sold-out dinner in the Church Hall on Saturday night, with our special guest preacher for Sunday, Rev Dr Vern Tozer, in attendance.
On Sunday, Rev Tozer reminded us in his sermon about the symbolism of the cock crowing on our steeple, and how it is trying to remind us what we need to do to ensure St Andrew’s Christian witness continues in Guelph for another 190 years.
Afterwards, cake in the parlour…
We don’t look too bad for 190 years old!

Someday soon, the rooster will return!
Some of you may have noticed the egg fridge at the Welcome Centre. The Oskam family is supplying fresh eggs from their farm for purchase at $3 a dozen (there is a locked money box on the fridge) and a portion of the sales made from the eggs is then directed back to St. Andrew’s.
Please do not confuse these eggs with the egg and cheese donations for Chalmers. Of course you can use the fridge to purchase eggs for Chalmers donations if you wish, but please make sure donations for Chalmers are placed in the fridge in the kitchen.
The Alsawal family was met at the airport this morning and no one could stop smiling. Father, mother, daughter and 5 sons are all looking forward to settling into their new home.
