In July, we celebrate the Great Hespeler Reunion 2016. During past reunions St. Andrews’ played an important role as host church for Sunday worship. In 2016, we welcome Rev. Richard Warne as guest speaker for worship July 10th at 10:00 am. Rick was raised in Hespeler and was active in the community. Rick and Mary (nee Jackson) served at St. Andrew’s for many years; teaching Sunday School, Youth Group Leader, Session Elder leading to being Ordained into Ministry in 2012. “Rev. Rick” can usually be found leading the two-point Charge of Jarvis and Walpole Presbyterian Church.
Reverend Scott McAndless and the congregation invite you to take a guided tour of the church on July 9th 10:00 am – 3:00 pm when you’re in town. Parents may take advantage of our child care services onsite during the tours. View this architecturally significant site on Queen Street from its birth in 1908 to present. 2016 marks the 160th Anniversary of Presbyterian worship in Hespeler – formerly known as New Hope Presbyterian Church. St. Andrews’ has numerous people stories and histories you can view first-hand. In 2016, the Hespeler Place of New Hope Clothing centre was created to assist the sharing of free clothing in association with the satellite home of the Cambridge Food Bank.
