“Presbyterians on the Run”

This year, St. Andrew’s and Knox Guelph are joining forces and encouraging their congregations to #RunfortheCure in Guelph’s October 6 CIBC Run for the Cure. It is a 5K or 1K walk or run that raises funds for the Canadian Cancer Society. We’d love you to join us on the walk/run or cheer us on… or you are welcome to donate to our Team. Our ministers, The Rev. Johan Olivier and The Rev. John Borthwick are already signed up. We’d love to have as many participants on the walk/run as possible. You can join the team or donate here:


Following the event, Knox Guelph will be hosting a brief joint St. Andrew’s/Knox worship service in their sanctuary for the community. There will be NO worship service at St. Andrew’s Guelph. See you on the RUN, Presbyterians.

Guelph Youth For Christ Moves in! (Partnership in Action)

Youth for Christ: “We see the hope and potential in every young person”

You will recall that Guelph Youth for Christ is a mission and outreach partner of St. Andrew’s and some of you will have met Karen Bast and/or Mark Stromenberg at the Mission and Outreach Fair last year.


The MOCC is very excited to tell you about the next step in this partnership:  Guelph Youth for Christ is relocating to St. Andrew’s!  During weekdays, Karen and Mark will be sharing the Director of Children and Youth Office, the Youth Room and (occasionally) the Church Hall.

Thank you to Rev. John and the Board of Managers for helping to make this happen.

Please pray that this relationship will become a powerful way of expanding our partnership with this ministry and give St. Andrew’s a greater feeling of tangibly reaching youth in our community with the Gospel through the dedicated work of the team from Youth for Christ.
