Welcome to St. Andrew's Episcopal Church

Our Mission:

"Sharing Our Faith - Welcoming and Serving Others"

Our homeless sheltering mission begins...

On Dec. 5th our homeless shelter starts.

This is every Friday night until Saturday morning.  We serve them dinner, a place to be safe and sleep in warmth.  We also serve a hot breakfast to our guests on Saturday morning. 

This takes a lot of hands.  If you would like to help with anything please call me at-610-760-2170. You may also email at cindybowlby@gmail.com

We have a need for many items-every week.  They receive new white socks (they prefer white tube socks or white crew socks).  We also need toilet articles such as toothbrushes (the soft ones), toothpaste , soap, etc. I will place a box at the rear of the church  to collect these items.

Please help in our mission.

Thank you,

Cindy Bowlby-Site Coordinator

A Welcome Message from our Rector:

 

Dear Friend,

 

Thank you for visiting the web site of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Allentown, PA.  I want to welcome you to this site wherever on life’s path you may be.  Hopefully within these pages you will get a glimpse of our faith community and what it may offer you on your own spiritual path and journey.

 

We are a diverse community and worship together as a family in all of our differences and variety. Our worship is typically Anglican and each week we gather to celebrate the Lord’s Supper at 8AM and 10:30AM on Sundays.  

 

If you are seeking a faith community or want to re-kindle your spiritual life, we invite you to come and walk with us.  You would be most welcome.

Peace,

(The Rev.)  T. Scott Allen      

Rector

The Five Marks of Mission - The Mission of the Church is the Mission of Christ

“Mission goes out from God. Mission is God’s way of loving and saving the world…” (Lambeth Conference 1998)



In 1990 the world-wide Anglican Communion established and agreed upon five elements of mission of the Church. The recent General Convention of the Episcopal Church affirmed and adopted these and recommended them for study and action in all parishes as the key statement upholding everything we do and are.

  • To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom
  • To teach, baptize and nurture new believers
  • To respond to human need by loving service
  • To seek to transform unjust structures of society
  • To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth
