We welcome you to the website for St. Andrew’s United Church in Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada, where all are invited to worship and serve God. Our church is a warm and loving fellowship where individuals have the freedom to worship, minister, and experience God’s grace in a variety of ways.
At St. Andrew’s UC, we believe that God loves all people, and that God desires to bring each of us into a closer relationship with each other and with God. St. Andrew's United Church connects people with each other, so that together we can connect with God.
St. Andrew's is the kind of church that welcomes people wherever they are on their faith journey. We encourage people to ask questions. All of us need to discover truths about God and about life in general. Our church welcomes all people and within these walls there is no sense of segregation based on race, age, sex, economic status, sexual orientation, or any other wall of division that has been constructed by humanity. At St. Andrew's we celebrate together…as God calls us to be.
Church doesn’t have to be boring! We try to make our services warm, friendly, fun, casual, encouraging, relaxing, and yet powerfully challenging. St. Andrew's is a great place for the whole family. We sing together, pray together and learn to live lives filled with celebration in being creations of our God.
One of the biblical passages that informs our community of faith is found in the Book of Acts, Chapter Two, Verse Forty Two which reads "All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper), and to prayer." From this passage comes our motto: "St. Andrew's, A Place To Meet God Through Community".
You can discover a lot of facts about our church on this Web site, but to really discover who we are you need to come and visit.

We hope to see you soon.
Join us in an adventure into a new way of doing church!
St. Andrew’s is...
» a church for all people, of all cultures, races, sexual orientations, backgrounds.
» a church where diversity of worship styles is the norm.
» a church where every member is a minister.
» a church which aims to transform the entire community.
» a church where people are first, programs are second, and facilities are third.
» a church in which your preconceived ideas of what a church is all about may be challenged!
Often times people ask ... 'Why do I need to belong to a church?' My answer to that would be simple: because a church is more than a building, it’s a family. When you are hurting, when you are in need, when you are discouraged, where do you go? You go to your family. We at St. Andrew’s United Church strive to create together a family atmosphere where we can love and support one another in times of trial and in times of triumph. And as we do, we are blessed, others are blessed, and the will of God is accomplished on the earth.
