The era of our Rev. Bill and Rev. Catherine “dream team” is coming to a close. Join us to say thank you and goodbye to Rev. Bill Steadman and Rev. Catherine Somerville and to other departing staff. On Sunday, June 10 after the service we will “party on” with lunch and cake, and present them with tokens of our appreciation for the gifts they have shared with us.
B. Brankley, Chair of the M&P Committee

St. Andrew’s United Church is seeking a full-time Minister of Worship & Congregational Outreach due to the retirement of one of our ministers.
St. Andrew’s occupies a unique place in a unique city. The church is at the city’s heart, housed in St. Andrew’s Place, a 10-storey church/residential/commercial complex that was one of the first of its kind when built in 1973. Sudbury leads the way in environmental transformation, having regreened and resuscitated its lands and lakes over the past 40 years. Residents here can live beside one of 330 lakes within the city limits, and still get to work in a matter of minutes (which may help explain why in 2015 Stats Canada reported Sudbury to be the happiest city in Canada).
Sudbury has grown far beyond its mining roots to become the largest city in Northern Ontario, with three post-secondary institutions (including schools of medicine and architecture), a regional centre for health care and research, and commercial, arts and culture, and recreational opportunities.
St. Andrew’s has a long history of shared/team ministry, achieved through creative and respectful cooperation between order of ministry staff and associate lay positions, working in conjunction with other church members, volunteers from outside the congregation and community partners. For example, we are actively involved in an inter-denominational downtown churches’ association and have joined forces with several other churches to offer a hot meal program from November to April, which we began more than 20 years ago.
The full-time minister we are seeking will be part of a ministry team with a part-time Minister of Pastoral Care & Outreach (14 hours/week). Together, they will lead the congregation to live out our vision of what it means to be a 21st century Christian community in downtown Sudbury. For more information, please view the JNAC report.
Please email applications by May 25, 2018 to Dale Myslik at [email protected]
