— Isaiah 52:7
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”
Administrants are lay persons who administer the sacraments during the Eucharist. Each Sunday we usually have two persons at the 10:30 am service, and one person at the 8:00 am service. For more information or to join this team contact Christine.
The Altar Guild is a lay ministry to serve God in His house by preparing the Sanctuary for worship, maintaining and caring for the sacred vessels, altar linens, and vestments and serving the clergy and the parish. Contact Kathryn Tulk for more information.
The choir leads the singing in worship. They are led by the Choir Director, Melissa Lebo. The choir meets for practice between services on Sunday mornings at 9:10 am. No previous experience is necessary and we welcome you. If you are interested in joining the choir please talk to any choir member or Victoria Michkofsky.
PRAYER LEADERS (INTERCESSORS)
Prayer leaders have the privilege of offering the Prayers of the People at the 10:30 am service on a rotation basis and at other services as required. Each prayer leader chooses the form of prayer to be used and prepares prayerfully during the week ahead so they can best facilitate prayers for those worshipping. Please contact Susan Chivers if you are interested in leading the prayers.
The sidespersons are the men and women who greet you and hand out the weekly bulletins when you arrive at St. Andrew’s. They also assist you in finding a seat when necessary. Their other main duty is to collect the weekly offerings and to count and record them for the envelope secretary. After the service they tidy up the pews, kneelers and books. New volunteers are always most welcome. Contact John MacKinnon for more information.
The Greeters have the enjoyable role of greeting everyone as they arrive for the 10:30 am service on Sundays, and make them welcome to our church. We also carry the sacraments up to the altar for Eucharist. If you would like to join our team please contact Helen Perry. New members are always welcome.
Reading scripture lessons during the 10:30 am Sunday morning service, along with special services throughout the year, is an important part of our worship ministry. Interested readers can contact Christine for more information.
