Welcome to the newly redesigned website for St Andrew Memorial Anglican Church. Building on our vision of who we are and who God is calling us to be, we have worked hard over the summer to bring a fresh look to our web presence as a means to tell our story and the Story of Jesus Christ. The page is designed to be more interactive and flow to our other initiatives, ministries and social media presences. We hope you will take some time to look around and explore our community of faith....

Garden Thanksgiving

Sep 25 2013
In the spring we gathered as a community to bless the seeds that we would plant in the St Andrew Memorial community garden. We prayed for God's blessing upon the seeds, upon the gardeners themselves and of course upon the land itself. Over the course of the summer the harvest has been more then plentiful. We, as a parish community, have brought down to the Fellowship Centre at St Paul's Cathedral, the Anglican Daily Soup in London Ontario, over 200 pounds of fresh vegetables with more being...

We prayed for God's blessing upon the seeds, upon the gardeners themselves and of course upon the land itself. Mid Seaon Growth 2013.1Over the course of the summer the harvest has been more then plentiful. We, as a parish community, have brought down to the Fellowship Centre at St Paul's Cathedral, the Anglican Daily Soup in London Ontario, over 200 pounds of fresh vegetables with more being harvested in the fall!! The impact has been remarkable, as our community has enjoyed its time in the garden, the clients at the Fellowship Centre have enjoyed nutritious organic vegetables and we have joined in a wider effort with fellow Anglicans in London to follow the most basic calling of Jesus Christ: Feed the Poor. On October 6th at 4:00pm, we will gather in the garden to thank God for all that God has provided. We are also pleased to welcome Dean Kevin Dixon as our guest preacher. All are welcome to join us and too tell their stories of their garden this year as well. Following the Garden Service, we will return to the parish for a short reception followed by Stewardship Dinner in the Chelsea Hall. There is no cost for the dinner, although a free will offering will be accepted. I look forward to seeing everyone in the garden!!

Kitchen Dedication and Pot Luck

On September 30th 2012, St Andrew Memorial will be holding one service only at 10:30 am, as we come together as a parish family to celebrate the renovation of our kitchen and dedication ceremony in honor of Nancy Hyatt. The renewal and growth of St Andrew Memorial is expressed clearly in the newly renovated kitchen.

The renewal and growth of St Andrew Memorial is expressed clearly in the newly renovated kitchen. The project was tackled so that not only would the parish have a good and functioning kitchen, but also so that the kitchen may be paired with our community garden as part of our outreach to the community around us. Stay tuned for exciting announcements and new programs surrounding food preparation and preservation for the gardeners and all in the neighbourhood as we seek to lower our carbon foot print and reconnect with our food.

Open Letter To London City Counicl

We are writing as the community of St. Andrew Memorial to express our concern over the recent budget being considered by city council. We believe that the lengths proposed to achieve a 0% tax increase could have very negative consequences for the city of London, especially its poorest and most marginalized citizens.

We are writing as the community of St. Andrew Memorial to express our concern over the recent budget being considered by city council. We believe that the lengths proposed to achieve a 0% tax increase could have very negative consequences for the city of London, especially its poorest and most marginalized citizens. Based on information provided by the city’s director of municipal housing, Louise Stevens, we understand that for every housing dollar contributed by the city, federal and provincial authorities contribute another $3, and another $4 flows from the private sector. Therefore cutting $1 million from the annual housing reserve fund actually means cutting $3 million over the next three years, which translates into a potential loss of about $21 million in additional investment from private and other government sources. We support the desire to lessen the financial burden on London households, however this cannot come at the expense of the well-being of our most vulnerable citizens. The promise to achieve a 0% tax increase was paired with a promise of 0% cuts. If both of these promises cannot be kept, we believe critical services and funding to improve the quality of life and well-being of all citizens must take priority. We cannot fund the tax cuts for the majority at the expense of the poor. Cutting contributions to municipal housing reserve funds compromises the extensive housing strategy developed over 5 to 10 years by housing experts and community members. These cuts do more than inconvenience families who are struggling and in transition. They have the potential to reduce accessibility, long-term stability and increase the burden on those moving off the streets, on marginal incomes and the mentally ill in profound ways. We therefore strongly urge you to fulfill the city’s expected contribution of one million dollars to the reserve fund for affordable housing as part of this year’s budget. If it means a tax increase of 0.3% or an average $6.71 per year per household, we will be the first to gladly pay to ensure the well-being of all citizens. The Rev’d Marty Levesque, Rector Jim Stewart, Warden Kent Thomas, Warden On behalf of the Parish Council and the community of St Andrew Memorial Church, London
