COVID-19 Information

We know that COVID-19 is still in the community, and as of the beginning of July the waste water numbers were beginning to go up again. There are no provincial or city of Ottawa regulations or mandates for churches at this time, however the Ontario Science Table is still recommending that those with compromised immune systems and anyone at risk continue to mask when inside in groups of people. Here at St. Andrew’s we no longer require masking even while singing, however we still encourage people to mask while in the church building.

Here is a brief summary of how we are dealing with COVID-19

      • If you have COVID symptoms or you are not well, please stay home and join us online.
      • We will continue livestream and recorded services indefinitely.
      • You may sit wherever you like, but be sensitive of other people’s comfort level with sitting close to people.
      • If in doubt, just ask if they are comfortable with you sitting near them.
      • We are not yet returning to having coffee hour…  hopefully in September!
      • The Session will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and the advice of medical authorities and if need be we will consider re-introducing masking requirements or other measures in order to do what we reasonably can to help keep people safe.

All are welcome here!

And we really mean it!

Stay safe, and help keep others safe too!

Jun 13, 2021. This past week was the General Assembly or Annual Meeting of the Presbyterian Church in Canada. At that meeting our church voted to approve same-sex marriage and ordination of our LGBTQI brothers and sisters. This worship service has a focus on those issues.

Here is a link to the service

 June 6, 2021 is Healing & Reconciliation Sunday, Communion Sunday, and the beginning of General Assembly.

Here is the link for our Sunday Service. This service includes a recorded communion service at the end of it. A link for 11:00 a.m. communion service and coffee hour will go out before the service.

Support is available for anyone affected by their experience at residential schools, and those who are triggered by the latest reports.

A national Indian Residential School Crisis Line has been set up to provide support for former students and those affected. People can access emotional and crisis referral services by calling the 24-hour national crisis line: 1-866-925-4419.

I mention in the service that there will be links on our website for our national office and our church’s role in residential schools and the healing and reconciliation process.  “Healing and Reconciliation”

Here is a link from the Tḱemlúps te Secwepemc– First Nation on how to help them right now.

And finally, here is a link to the General Assembly Meetings this week. They are being live-streamed!
