Advent Attentiveness

A St. Andrew’s spiritual practice for Advent

Each week we will post a reflective piece written and read by poet Kim King. Find a moment of quiet, to centre and attend to the spiritual gift of Advent. Click on the image(s) below to watch and listen on YouTube.

Kim is Director of Halifax’s Barat Spirituality Centre, and beloved friend of Saint Andrew’s.

You’ll find more of her writing, musing and wandering at www.considerlilies.blog.

Sharing communion.
Worshipping together.

It's ALL church.

We hope you will join us at one, or all! You are welcome here. 

Transgender Day of Remembrance


We joined our friends at Queer Spirit Church on the afternoon of Sunday, November 20 for a special service to observe Transgender Day of Remembrance — a day to remember trans people (particularly transfeminine people of the global majority) who have been lost to hate crimes and other forms of violence.

Part contemplation, part education, this service aimed to open the eyes and touch the hearts of all.

"Perhaps this is also Christ."

Healing Pathway Training

We are excited to be bringing Healing Pathway Ministry to St. Andrew's - A Transformational Spiritual Practice. This practice is heart-centered, inclusive, brings community together for self-care, and restores wholeness, balance and harmony.

Phase 1 training was held October 21-22. Stay tuned for what's happening next!

*We are grateful for the generous financial support from Regional Council 15 and their New Ministries Initiatives Fund, which provided subsidies for participants. 

What else can we be doing?

Celebrating diversity and inclusion is not a one time thing during Pride. We keep working at it all the time to make sure St. Andrew's is a safe place.
