The VALUES imbedded in ST. ANDREW’S VISION and the MISSION which emanates from this were developed based upon the work of the congregation in the fall of 2019. The following was reviewed at an online Congregational Discernment event on February 9, 2021.
St. Andrew’s Mission Statement:
Woven into our neighbourhood, growing disciples who love like Jesus.
St. Andrew’s Values:
Inviting you to experience God’s presence and love in community, whoever you are and whatever your circumstances.
Making the interests of others greater than our own.
Seeking out new and bold ways to glorify and advance God’s purposes in the world, knowing we are never alone.
Opening our hearts and minds to the suffering of others and responding with mercy and grace.
Discerning from God who we are sent to, as we grow flourishing life in our world.
Demonstrating Christ’s love, with a willing heart, for God and others.
Honouring different ways of thinking, perspectives, languages, cultures, races and genders, enabling the Spirit’s creative spark to bring forth new possibilities.
