NOTE: During the pandemic re-opening, St. Andrew’s will offer only one service – on Sundays at 10:30 am. This decision was based on the fact that, with one service, we would be better utilizing our volunteer time and energy. The Order of Service for this Sunday’s service (September 20th) can be viewed/downloaded **here**. PLEASE PHONE THE CHURCH (472-7680) BEFORE 11 AM on FRIDAY to let us know if you are planning to attend the service – and if there will be any additional people in your “bubble group”. This information is important in regards to seating everybody safely. Also please be aware that you may not be able to sit where you have always sat… we appreciate your patience in this matter.
NOTE: The video of the Sunday service will be posted no later than 6 pm each Sunday on the St. Andrew’s YouTube Channel (barring any technical glitches!).
The “TOGETHER” news sheet is be returning – and will feature news, events, and happenings at St. Andrew’s. This new sheet will be sent out weekly to all on this “Reaching Out” mailing list. This week’s edition can be viewed/ downloaded **here**.

The Council of St. Andrew’s United Church in North Bay met on Sunday,March 15th to plan a way forward during the current COVID-19 situation. At that meeting, the following decisions were made in a committed effort to keep our community safe and reduce the spread of the coronavirus.
Sunday worship services will be suspended with the hope that they may tentatively resumein the near future. The Council will, however, actively monitor the situation and may extend the suspension as needed.
All face-to-face meetings and gatherings of church-related committees and groups will be suspended until the worship suspension is lifted.
Any group use of the church must be arranged through the Church Office Administrator as access to the church building is limited.
The Loaves & Fishes foodbank will continue to operate on Thursday mornings, but with special modifications in place.
