At the heart of faith formation and all we do at St. Andrew’s United Church rests our love of God and neighbour. We’re committed to environmental stewardship and believe everyone deserves access to fresh, healthy and inexpensive food.
Through the New Horizons for Seniors program (Government of Canada), project leaders contacted senior members of the community by phone each week through the fall of 2020. They asked participants to name three things for which they were thankful, and let the dialogue flow from there. The project’s aim was to cultivate relationships and remind the conversationalists that they are not alone.
Thanks to generous grants from the United Way of the Lower Mainland and the City of North Vancouver, St. Andrew’s continues to host two free meal programs weekly. Community Express Lunch and Bread Ministry operate on Thursdays from 12 – 1 pm, and Meal-to-Go on Fridays from 2 – 3 pm. Food is distributed from the middle door along St. George’s Avenue near the park bench. All meals are ‘to go’. Please wear a mask. Everyone is welcome!
St. Andrew’s United Church Community Garden fosters fun in community as residents of North Vancouver and members of St. Andrew’s tend 18 garden beds and a communal herb garden along St. George’s Avenue between 11th Street and the alleyway adjacent to the church. If you would like to be part of our gardening cooperative, please call the church office for more information.
Loving our neighbour is at the heart of our Mission & Service: together, we support global partnerships, community outreach, and human rights across Canada and around the world. Your gifts for the Mission & Service of The United Church of Canada make a better world possible and bring hope for the future.
