Fellowship Events & Retreats
Throughout the year there are special events which encourage fellowship amongst the whole parish. Rev. Heather also organizes spiritual retreats once a year.
Advent and Lent Book Studies
We offer a weekly book study during Advent and Lent at 9 a.m. in Lower Level 5, inviting participants to read an agreed upon book and engage in ongoing group discussion.
Bible Studies & Other Courses
On Mondays at 6:30 p.m. we offer a Bible Study for parishioners and the wider community in Lower Level 5. Throughout the year we also offer a variety of opportunities for spiritual growth, from special forums to a series of classes, spiritual retreats off-site, and much more.
Your Faith, Your Life
Classes are offered every two years to those interested in learning more about the Episcopal Church. We read a book that is described as, 'An everything-you-need-to-know guide for newcomers to engage deeply in the Christian life in the tradition of the Episcopal Church' and meet three times to discuss. This program is especially appropriate for those exploring adult baptism, adult confirmation, or reception into the Episcopal Church.
If you are interested in getting involved in one of these spiritual growth opportunities, please contact the office.
St. Andrew's Guild
St. Andrew’ Guild is a free neighbor-to-neighbor Skills Sharing Center for residents of Franklin County. We gather in the Meeting Room, on Monday mornings during the school year for a drop-in sewing bee. We have sewing machines, tables for cutting and pinning, irons and boards, and a supply of donated fabric with ideas and patterns for small projects. There will always be an experienced stitcher on hand to lend advice and assistance. We are open from 9-12.
Free classes in various skills are held from time to time, as advertised on our Facebook page (St Andrews Guild at Facebook.com).
Everyone is invited to walk our indoor labyrinth on the fourth Sunday of every month in our Parish Hall. The labyrinth will be open to walk from 4 pm until 5 pm. Come anytime between! Why walk a labyrinth? It is a place to meditate and pray, a way to find peace and serenity, a way to address questions that are on your heart, for problem solving and guidance, a time to connect with the earth, and a time to celebrate being alive.
