St. Andrew’s church has a caring heart for the world. Our stewardship gifts to Presbyterians Sharing and Presbyterian World Service and Development help to make a difference to people across Canada and around the world by supporting missionary and development assistance. We also work locally and nationally to cultivate peace and justice.

Ubuntu Knitters

We meet every Tuesday Morning in the lower hall to knit together. Our main focus has been knitting touques, mittens and layettes for the Cariboo House Church Ministry children's program.  Join us, beginning at 10:00 am. Bring your knitting, or share the wool, needles and patterns that have been donated. Ubuntu takes a vacation in July and August

In 2013 our knitting supported ministry in: 100 Mile House "Kidspace" kids and staff; La La Hache Volunteer Fire Department Christmas program; Nazko Mission of the Rev.’s John and Shannon Wyminga;and the 100 Mile House Women’s Centre.

In 2014 we are knitting prayer shawls.  A prayer shawl is an item intentionally knitted with prayers of comfort, grace and peace for the one who will receive it. Shawls are given as gifts to people who are grieving, suffering from long-term illness, in a major life-transition, or as a Baptismal gift, or any other circumstance where a gift will bring hope, encouragement and the comfort of prayer.

 
"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat,
I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink,
I was a stranger and you welcomed me."
