Trinity-St. Andrew’s is known for its work serving the community and advocating for the
marginalized across the world. We are an affirming congregation, which means we are
dedicated to creating a radical welcome to all people.
Trinity-St. Andrew's United Church exists to ensure that all people may grow in their relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We are committed to creating a community where all people are
welcome regardless of age, gender, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, differing abilities, ethnic background or economic circumstances.
Do you feel an urgency to be involved in making this world a better place? So do we… one
person at a time. We are always looking for new people to join this work, but it doesn’t mean
you have to sit on a committee! If you want more information please reach out to the contacts
provided. Some of these projects are specific to our congregation, some of them we are hosting
on behalf of the community, or sponsoring through use of space and
administrative support, like HUGS.

Outreach committee spearheads a group of people who have gotten to know and support men that come from the Caribbean to assist in our local farming activities. We provide transport for them to medical appointments as well as a location and meal for them where they can socialize with us and other workers. We call on the congregation and community to assist with these activities and we try to find items needed for their work here as well as items they would like to take back home with them. We provided about 15 meals, many trips to medical appointments and shopping when they were not working. We are honoured to know these hard working men as friends and neighbours some have been leaving their families at home for 31 years to work on our farms. Before Christmas we invite Ten Thousand Villages from Cobourg to provide us with items for sale. This money is used to assist with expenses for our migrant workers events. We cannot thank the congregation enough for the support they have provided to us.
