9 am & 11 am
Our services are a time where we gather together as a Christian family to worship Jesus.
During this time we exercise our faith in corporate prayer, we sing praises to the Lord in song, hear the Bible being read and preached, participate in the sacraments, and share fellowship with one another. Every Sunday, our Church family shares in a joyful, worshipful celebration of God's grace and love through Jesus Christ.
Lord's Supper is celebrated during the service on the first Sunday in March, June, September and December and is open to anyone who claims Jesus as their Saviour.
We value living in community together as a church family. After the service we meet in the hal for fellowship over morning tea. Following the Korean service at 11:00am, there is further time of fellowship over lunch. We would love for you to join us!
Christian Education Ministry
Friday 6:45 pm
Christian Education provides and seeks ways and opportunities to educate, inform and empower all ages. To discover and grow deeper in Jesus Christ and the church, preparing witnesses to speak and act as disciples. Proverbs 1:7, The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. Our music ministry uplifts the kingdom of God through songs of praise and worship to Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Psalm 95:1-2, Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.
Youth Group meets every Friday at 6:45pm. We open the Word, pray, spend time in fellowship, enjoy fun activities, share a supper, and disciple our young people.
Children are as much a part of our congregation as anyone else. Please do not concern yourself about their noise- God made the wiggles in our kids! There are toys available at the vestry of the church for them to access at any time. Preschool, infants and primary kids are welcome to join our Kids Church part way through the service (during term time) where they enjoy worship, games and learning at their own level with teachers. At Sunday School we aim to help parents bring up their children in the Christian faith. The lessons are geared to help each child grow in the Christian faith, to understand the Bible, to learn of the Lord Jesus and be nurtured in Christian living. Each week the children have a varied program that may include singing, study, games & activities. Every Sunday during the 9am and 11am services.
PWA (Presbyterian Women's Association)
The PWA has been a worshipping part of St Andrew’s since its beginning.

We occasionally invite a guest speaker to address us at our meetings and members are represented on standing and special committees areas. The PWA is dedicated to the ideals of Service, Prayer and learning.
