St. Andrew's Episcopal ChurchAyer, Massachusetts

Welcome

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.

Mission

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.

  • Join us for Parish Book Read.  You are invited to join us for a "Parish Book Read."  We are reading David Brooks' book, The Road to Character, and will discuss it for several Sundays in a row in November during our adult forum. Isabel Geller has copies of the book available at coffee hour for $13.  

  • The new morning schedule starts September 17 when our two services become one. The new schedule is as follows:

    9:15 a.m.-  Sunday School

    9:30 a.m.- Worship Service

    10:45 am.- Coffee hour in the Parish Hall

    11:15 a.m.- noon-  Adult Forum in the Parish Hall

     The Rite I version of the Holy Eucharist will be used once a month.  Come and find out what it is like to use the music included in our hymnal for the sung portions of the Rite I Eucharist.  This combination of two worship services into one allows us to offer an Adult Forum after services each week.

  • Adult forums will start this Fall on September 17 - Sundays from 11:15 to noon following coffee hour in the Parish Hall.

    Topics will include:

    · Comparing Rites I and II

    · Science and Faith

    · New Members Class

  • The Outreach Committee is asking parishioners to collect flat smooth rocks over the summer— rocks that can fit in the palm of your hand.  At the Sunday School picnic on September 10th we will provide paints and markers so people can write words of peace, love and hope on one side and identify St. Andrew’s on the other.  We will set the rocks outside hospitals, nursing homes, senior centers and other places where people could use a kind word.  Thank you for your help.
