St. Andrew's Episcopal ChurchAyer, Massachusetts


For 125 years now, St. Andrew's has welcomed people into a community of faith "beside the tracks" in downtown Ayer, Massachusetts.  When people describe St. Andrew's they use words like: 'welcome,' 'relaxed,' and 'accepting.' We believe that a church should be a community that embraces the uniqueness of each individual.  We welcome and care for all people at every stage of their spiritual journey, and we seek to create opportunities for faith in God to be discovered, renewed and put into action.


We seek to grow in faith as individuals and as a community, to glorify God as revealed in Jesus Christ and to nurture those around us. We reach out to share His Word and His Love with all people, especially those in need.
