Furnace Installation

The church office will close today at noon today as the contractors installing the new furnaces need to shut the power off to the building.  If all goes according to schedule with the install, we should have heat in the Sanctuary this Sunday for worship!

Good News!

For the last several weeks we have been experiencing some difficulties with the office’s email.  As of today, I’m happy to say that email is FINALLY 100% working for the church office!  The office can now send and receive email after our provider fixed the issue on their end. We appologize for the inconvenience this has caused.

Email Challenges for Church Office

Thank you for your continued patience with our email system challenges. Shainna, our Administrator is continuing to have challenges with the mailboxATstandrewsguelphDOTcom email address. She is able to receive your emails but has been unable to send from that address for the last two weeks. It is still be worked on and we hope to have it resolved this week. Thanks for your patience.

Church Office Email is Unavailable

If you have emailed us in the last week, our Church Office has yet to receive it. Due to some complications related to our current construction project, our Church Office email (mailboxATstandrewsguelphDOTcom) has been unavailable.

We will update you as soon as this issue is resolved. In the meantime, please feel free to call Shainna in the Church Office at 519-822-4772. Thank you for your patience.

Hydro “off” – Oct 1-2

As part of the installation of the new heating system, power will be turned off in the building off and on over the next couple of weeks; power will be turned off completely on October  1 all day and night, and October 2 all day. If extra time is needed, the power will also be turned off during the morning of October 3.

New Heating System for Sanctuary and Church Hall

The church heating system is being switched over from the boiler to a forced-air system.  All of the radiators have been removed and ductwork is being installed.  Heating will come from two external units; a rooftop unit over the Choir Room, and one on the Suffolk Street (north) lawn.  Installation should be completed in October; during installation, electricity to the building will be interrupted periodically, and will be off completely October 1 and 2.

Stairwell Enclosure and Emergency Exit

The Stairwell Enclosure at the south end of the Christian Education wing is now finished but it is intended for Emergency Exit ONLY from the Basement of the CE wing; anyone opening the CE wing Basement door will set off a door alarm.  The upper door at ground level is kept locked at all times, but can be opened from the inside by using the door’s panic bar.
