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.

Happening this week


St Andrew's has moved online payments and donations to Breeze, a company similar to PayPal. Breeze integrates with our financial systems and allows us to keep records fully updated and access funds more quickly.

Using Breeze will not incur any extra charges for you, however, like PayPal, they do charge us the church a 3% fee on each transaction so if you can afford to include a little extra to cover the fee we would greatly appreciate it. You can also choose to support St. Andrew's with a once a month payment of your pledge instead of weekly if you prefer.

You don't need a Breeze account to pledge/donate, just enter your debit or credit card information and your email address. By including your name and email address, we will be able to credit your tax deductible pledge/donation to you account. If you encounter any difficulties please let us know by clicking here. If you encounter any difficulties please let us.
