Visiting St. Andrew's
Location & Parking
St. Andrew's is centrally located in the heart of the historic Heights neighborhood at 1819 Heights Boulevard and is easily accessible from several major freeways. Our parking lot entrance is located on 19th Street between Yale Street and Heights Boulevard, and you may access the church through the canopied entrance. Ample street parking is also available.
Ushers and greeters are available at all entrances to welcome you immediately prior to a service. They provide directions, information and distribute service bulletins. If you have any special needs, please let us know so that appropriate accommodations can be made.
Nursery for Young Children
Nursery care is available on Sunday mornings for children from infancy through 3 years old from 9:15 AM until noon. Our professional caregivers provide a safe and caring environment to nurture our youngest children, have been trained in safe ministry practices, and passed reference and background checks. Along with age-appropriate classroom materials, we provide Seasons of the Spirit Bible stories and activities for toddlers. Care is also provided at many special services and events.
Worshiping with Us
Our worship services are interactive and participatory. Everything needed to participate can be found in the service bulletin or the Hymnal, located in the pews. The service bulletin offers a detailed guide to each service. If you do not receive one from an usher/greeter, you can find one at any church entrance. Please do not be concerned if you don't know exactly what to do—just do what feels comfortable. And if you have questions, those seated near you are happy to assist. We offer Sunday services at 8:30 AM and 10:30 AM along with Rhythms of Grace, a service for individuals of all abilities, at 2 PM.
Visitor Cards can be found in each pew. We hope that you will complete one and place it in the collection plate during the Offertory or give it to an usher/greeter when you leave. By doing so, you can receive parish communications so that you can learn more about St. Andrew’s.
After the Service
On Sunday mornings, Education Hour for all ages is offered at 9:30 AM. On the second Sunday of the month, we offer a hot, home-cooked breakfast in the Parish Hall at 9:30 AM. Coffee Time is held in the Parish Hall immediately following the 10:30 AM service. This is a great place to meet parishioners and learn a bit more about St. Andrew's.
Before You Leave
We invite you to take home a Newcomer’s Bag as you leave—each bag contains additional information about the Episcopal Church, our beliefs, the ministries at St. Andrew’s, and a current copy of our parish newsletter.
