Thank you for taking the time to learn more about St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Cobourg. We are a part of the Presbyterian Church in Canada and have been worshiping in Cobourg since 1833.
Here is some common information that you may want to know about St. Andrew’s. You can learn more about our formation as a community of faith on our history page.
What we believe.
We believe God is fully revealed in the three aspects of the Trinity: Creator, Son and Spirit.
As a worshiping community we celebrate the sacraments of communion and baptism.
Our goal is that through our worship and commitment to the values of Christ we can reveal the love that God has for all people.
What ministries do we support?
St. Andrew’s is very active within the local community. A weekly Soup Kitchen offers meals to those who are hungry or in need of company. Rev. Ellis sits on the Northumberland Affordable Housing Committee, the Northumberland Country Housing Corporation and Transition House board.
Some of the ministries we support are:
- Habitat for Humanity
- Cornerstone Family Violence Prevention Centre
- FareShare Food Bank
- Presbyterian World Service & Development
St. Andrew’s hosts frequent movie nights on subjects of social interest and is active in the community in a variety of other ways.
How can I get involved?
What is worship like at St. Andrew's?
Are children welcome in worship?
St. Andrew’s is an open and inviting congregation, we enjoy having children with us during worship. Several services during the year are inter-generational, allowing the whole body of Christ to worship together.
I am interested in baptism.
At St. Andrew’s we practice infant baptism. Those baptised as infants are called later in life to publicly affirm their faith.
Requests for baptism are made to the Session of St. Andrew’s through the minister. As baptism is an act of discipleship the Session will ask questions about the individual being baptised and their commitement to the community of faith.
