Outreach & Missions Ministry

The mission that we strive to fulfill is to seek God's wisdom, guidance and vision in spreading His word by helping those in need in our congregation, in our community and beyond.  In these efforts, we are blessed to have many volunteers who work tirelessly to run and to assist with our programs which are listed below.  That said, our Mission is such that it could expand endlessly depending upon the initiative and support provided, but for that, additional volunteers would be required ... you would be welcomed!  At the moment the ministry, headed by two members of session with specific responsibility in this regard, is made up of a number of individuals who are involved in its various activities.

Committees within Outreach & Missions Ministry are:

  • Communications
  • Knox College Liaison
  • Presbyterians Sharing
  • Publicity
  • St. Andrew's Community Service
  • Sunday Suppers
  • Transportation
  • Women's Missionary Society


Transportation


Many members of our congregation need assistance to come to worship services on Sunday mornings.  To assist them, our transportation committee provides drivers to bring people to church and to take them home afterward.  If anyone would benefit from this service, he/she is invited to call the church office at 705-324-4842 in order to be put in contact with someone who could help them in this regard.

 
Women's Missionary Society

The Women’s Missionary Society, of which there are “chapters” in many Presbyterian churches, is “a Community of Christian women whose purpose, in response to the love of God in Jesus Christ, is to encourage one another and all the people of the church to be involved in local and world mission through prayer, study, service and fellowship.”  At St. Andrew’s, we have afternoon meetings and would be glad to welcome anyone who is interested in learning about and supporting the mission work of the Presbyterian Church in Canada.  Please call the church office at 705-324-4842 to learn about current meeting days and times because they do vary.
