Our 3rd Annual Gospel-ish Concert, July 2, 2017

Our 3rd Annual Gospel-ish Concert was quite the event on Sunday, July 2nd, a day after Canada’s 150th! Our regular service was moved outside for this day, and began at 11:00 a.m., and the concert began at 12 noon. Great weather, great entertainment, free food and drinks. Thanks so much to all those people who helped make it happen – the musicians, and the volunteers, those preparing and cooking the food, taking the photos, 4Good for providing the sound system and tech work, and to Wineglass for loaning us their “stage”. Team work!

Cochrane Community Awards 2017

The Cochrane Community Awards 2017 event was held Sunday afternoon at the Cochrane Ranchehouse. The nominations for the many categories showed just how fortunate Cochrane is to have so many wonderful individuals, groups, and businesses making contributions to our community. Thank you to the Cochrane Community Awards program for all their work.

St. Andrew’s United is so proud of our minister, Ray Goodship, for receiving the “Citizen of the Year” Award, in recognition of his outstanding and ongoing contributions to our community! Congratulations Ray!

In addition, our Community Lunch program, initiated by Ray in recent years, and sustained by numerous enthusiastic volunteers every Tuesday for the Free Lunch program, was the recipient of the “Equity & Inclusion Champion of the Year” Award! Carole Clement accepted this Award on behalf of St. Andrew’s. Kudos to Ray and all our St. Andrew’s volunteers for making this possible!
