About St. Andrew's Hespeler
Here at St. Andrew’s we feel it is important to serve not only our members, but the community that we call home, Hespeler, Cambridge. Several groups and agencies have found a home here.
Under the umbrella of Place of New Hope we host the Cambridge Self-Help Food Bank for clients in the Hespeler area. Hope Clothing provides free clothing and some household items for all members of the family. The food bank sees around 40 families access their program every 2 weeks while the Hope Clothing sees approximately 100 people per month. From October to April we host a free Thursday Night Supper & Social. About 40 people come to eat each week. Also under this umbrella you can find the A-A, Al-Anon and Al-Ateen groups here, meeting every Friday evening. The Family Counselling of Cambridge & North Dumfries offers counselling here every Tuesday. The Y Employment Services often comes on Food Bank days to help people work on resumés, etc. We work closely with other organizations in the community so that people who have specific needs can find what they need easily.
Being a part of our community is a vital aspect of our church. Many groups find a home in our facilities; Scouting groups and Brownies; Ontario Early Years drop-in centre; T.O.P.S.; Dynamo gymnastics club.
