Our Congregation is made up of individuals representing all parts of our society, with each finding ways to support our many needs. Financial support is but one component albeit a very important aspect of our wellbeing. Expressing our gratitude for the blessings God has given us includes our prayer life, our activities for the building up of God’s kingdom on earth, and financial contributions for the ministry of the church that is your community.
The ministries of St. Andrew’s cost approximately $900 per day, so the financial support of the members of this faith community and others is a matter of great importance. Most people make a plan for their charitable giving: there are options to consider, and many people decide to utilize more than one option.
Financial support (donations) are welcome and we use an Envelope system for those preferring them.When you begin attending St. Andrew’s, you can request a set of numbered envelopes to be used for giving. You can complete your envelope at home and bring it with you to give on Sunday morning. This method allows us to accurately provide you with a record of your giving.
Establish an automatic withdrawal from your checking or savings account through our PRE-AUTHORIZED REMITTANCE (PAR) which makes monthly withdrawals from your bank account. You’ll never have to worry about writing that cheque at the last minute or giving while you’re away.

When there is a death within our Congregational family or a funeral is held at St. Andrew’s, the surviving family is invited consider a memorial gift to St. Andrew’s. If there are no survivors, the invitation may be made to the executor, if known.
