Programs for all ages
St. Andrew’s -Wesley Church looks to initiate and present
different programs, which invite you to explore and share your own Christian
story – wherever you may be on that journey. Some are weekly like Disciples
Bible Study, some are monthly. Some last a few weeks others last a few months.
It is the purpose of the church to have a choice of programs that encourage
spiritual growth and help you along your Christian journey.
All are Welcome in this place, seriously.. Everyone!

HEALING TOUCH MINISTRY
Healing touch is an energy-based approach to healing. It is non-invasive, economical, effective and helps to promote relaxation, reduce pain, manage stress, speed healing, and increase a sense of well-being. The Healing Pathway is an educational programme, with developmental phases, that is designed to train and mentor people in developing the gift and skills of healing hands within the Christian tradition. The “textbook”, Healing from the Heart, is in our church library.
Pastoral Care is a personal commitment to provide care and support as needed to those who share in the life of the congregation of St.Andrew's-Wesley United Church. To keep in touch with those participating in the Church, there are regular contacts by volunteers. Concerns or needs or suggestions are passed on to those concerned. Clergy are always available to assist.
Programs of welcome are regular features for newcomers. The purpose is to express God's love and care for each person and to welcome them into the life of the Church.
The Word is Out
Gay & Lesbian Spirituality for Today:
Join us for a relaxing evening of food, fellowship, and sharing of moments in our lives with other gay and lesbian people of faith. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet and get to know the members of this exciting, growing group within our community. The sharing of a potluck meal starts off the evening and moves to discussion of GLBT and Faith exploration.
