Mission & Outreach

Called to Serve

THE TEAM

The Mission and Outreach Committee helps St. Andrew’s love and serve others by seeking funds for appropriate projects, coordinating M&O-related activities with other committees, and linking M&O-related activities with Session.

THE SERVICE

This service takes place along a spectrum, from:
✔︎ meeting immediate needs (e.g., food, shelter, medical care), to
✔︎ helping people learn and work to meet their needs themselves (e.g., training, education), to
✔︎ seeking justice so that the root causes of need are alleviated.

Where possible, service is through Presbyterian Church in Canada ministries and organizations, or agencies with which the congregation has historical linkages. This service to others takes place at three broad scales: locally, nationally and internationally

LOCALLY

…through service to others and fund-raising for local needs (details on each activity will be added in the future; not all activities can take place currently because of COVID, but will resume when it is safe to do so).

  • Saturday Morning Breakfast

NATIONALLY

… through our annual budget allotment to Presbyterians Sharing, which the congregation supports annually; and

INTERNATIONALLY

… through Presbyterian World Service & Development with a focus on education and fundraising (typically held after Christmas) .
