We have launched a three-year campaign to raise $190,000 to restore our historic and picturesque sanctuary. We started this online campaign with $140,000 already raised and in our Rejuvenate 190 Fund.
We need another $50,000 we hope will be raised with the convenience of online donations.
Details of this campaign can be found on our St. Andrew's website:
Rejuvenate 190 Campaign St. Andrew's Guelph 2016 – 2018
In 2018, St. Andrew's Guelph will be celebrating its 190th year as a community of faith in the City of Guelph. As a part of our celebrations, we have launched a three-year campaign to raise $190,000 to restore our historic and picturesque sanctuary. If we exceed our goal, we will rejoice by sharing our good fortune with the wider community in some tangible way yet to be determined… so here's to raising more than we need to accomplish our goal!
What are we raising $190,000 for?
1. Replacing our Sanctuary Roof
This project has been completed under budget.
2. Steeple Repairs
The plan is to begin this project in the Spring 2017.
UPDATE: April 22, 2018: Project nearly Finished!
3. Plaster Repairs in the Sanctuary
Now that a new roof is in place, we have proceeded with this project.
4. Upgrading the Sound System
Our sound system is showing its age and requires some upgrades
so that all can effectively hear the goings on at St. Andrew's
through the week and on Sunday mornings.
5. Replacement of the sanctuary flooring
The carpet has suffered from leaks, tears and wear over the years.
It is time to replace the flooring for the sake of safety and aesthetics.
