On April 22, the Province of Nova Scotia’s Chief Medical Officer announced new restrictions across Halifax Regional Municipality to help contain the spread of COVID-19 including the following effective immediately:
arts and culture events, faith gatherings, social events and sport and recreational activities are not permitted
St. Andrew’s will therefore suspend in person worship until such restrictions are modified. Video services will continue to be posted to our website and Facebook page each week.
Welcome to the Parish of Timberlea – Lakeside
serving Beechville, Lakeside, Timberlea and Hubley in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Our Mission: St. Andrew’s Church of Timberlea strives to be a caring, welcoming, friendly congregation reflecting the love of Christ in one another and the wider community by proclaiming Christ’s Gospel by word and deed. Thank you for choosing the Parish of Timberlea-Lakeside as your place of experiencing the joy of worshipping God to-day. The Congregation of St. Andrew’s is delighted to have you with us and we hope you feel welcome and cared for while you are here. We hope that you enjoy your time with us and look forward to seeing you again. In the parish, we gather to journey together in faith, hope, and love and invite you to come along. You will find the loving fellowship of our church community open to you and we rejoice in the knowledge that God has crossed our paths to-day. We pray that He opens our eyes to how we can encourage you and experience the blessings of your presence with us. Jesus established the Church as a community of believers, a family, to encourage each other to be a projection of His love to the world. If you are searching for a group of people to accept you where you are and to challenge you to grow in your reflection of God’s love, WELCOME, for that is our goal. For those who call this “home”, we commit to pray, to listen, with compassion, to forgive, and to nurture one another. We trust you will be strengthened and healed through the power of the Holy Spirit as we worship, learn, grow, and encourage one another. Our hope is that you will find your spiritual home here in this parish. We are indeed happy that you are here. WELCOME!
