Coffee Time is a much beloved tradition at St. Andrew’s. The time spent chatting and catching up with friends after worship, and the chance to make new friends as we welcome newcomers and make them feel at home is a very important part of our Sunday mornings. The added investment of some snacks and beverages, and a few people serving, makes it that even more special. Please consider signing up to host, either alone or with another individual or family - it's a great way to meet new people and is so important to our ministry of hospitality! Please sign up to host Coffee Time, and the church office will contact you with instructions and answer any questions you might have.
