At St. Andrew UCC, we celebrate the promise of God’s love.  In Jesus’ name we welcome and honor all of God’s family. St. Andrew is the spiritual home to people from a broad range of backgrounds and faith perspectives. Our hope is that you feel warmly welcomed here.

We see ourselves as a small church with a big heart.  St. Andrew is committed to Mission and Love, to helping our sisters and brothers in our congregation, in our community, and in the world. Love in Action is what we have come to call it – where, through our actions, we continually strive to become better Christians.

St. Andrew ­– located in Sarasota, Florida – is a loving place with friendly, caring people who like to have fun.  We look forward to getting to know visitors!  We encourage you to strike up a conversation with our pastor or anyone at St. Andrew to learn more about our life of worship, fellowship, and service together.

Worship Times

St. Andrew has a worship service twice a week, plus Special Services. Mary Mother of Jesus Inclusive Roman Catholic Community also worships here.

St. Andrew UCC Sunday Worship Service
10:30 A.M. Sunday

As you enter the church on Sunday, a friendly greeter will welcome you.  An usher will give you a bulletin to guide you through the service.  Our worship service features reading, preaching, prayer, and great music.  You will be invited to stand, sing, pray, greet your neighbor, be in silence, and read responsively.  Communion is offered the first Sunday each month.  Communion table is open to everyone — baptized or not, confessed or not, sure or not, saint or sinner or a little of both.  No one is ever turned away from God’s Table.  There will be an opportunity for you to give of yourself through the offering.

Contemplative Communion Service
6:00 P.M. Wednesday

Join us on Wednesday evenings for our Contemplative Communion service.  All are welcome at this service.

For 30 minutes, we pause in the middle of our busy week to contemplate God in our lives and in our community and to nourish our hearts, our minds, and our souls at God’s Table.

Here we focus on being still and quiet in company with one another through readings, reflections, and time for silent prayer.  In the light of the Christ candle we seek spiritual refreshment as we open ourselves to the voice of God within us.
