|SAME Biblical, Christ-centered teaching and practice together with all the pastors and congregations of Lutheran Church-Canada...|
Since 1999, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Moncton NB has rejoiced to be a part of establishing a mission congregation in the Halifax area: first as a preaching station of Good Shepherd (1999-2000), then as Nova Scotia Lutheran Outreach / Faith Lutheran Church - a Mission of the Lutheran Church-Canada East District, served by Missionary Rev. David Maffett (2000-2008), and most recently by providing pastoral care to Faith out of Good Shepherd, Moncton (2008-2012).
In June 2012, Faith entered into a special mother-daughter relationship with St. Peter's Lutheran Church, Stratford Ontario, and Rev. Paul Williams moved to the Halifax area to serve them locally, albeit on a part time basis. In recognition of this new beginning and their decision to move from Dartmouth to a more accessible location in Halifax, the members decided to adopt the new name St. Andrew's Lutheran Church, as in the Gospels we hear that Andrew was Peter's brother, and they shared the great joy of being Jesus' disciples and later fellow preachers of Christ as His Apostles (John 1:35-42). In June 2014, Pastor Williams accepted a Divine Call to another field of service, and since that time the people of Faith are being served by Rev. Padre David Jackson and others.
The people of St. Andrew's meet weekly for the Divine Service and at different times for Bible Study / Sunday School for different groups and ages. They gather not around each other, but around the Gospel of Jesus Christ - "the Word", as Christ has said, "that gives Spirit and Life" (John 6:63). They have also begun arranging periodic Divine Services and Bible Studies in other areas of Nova Scotia, and look forward to holding various events by which we can glorify the Lord for His Mercy and by which we may be of some earthly or spiritual service to our neighbours in the region.
We look forward to hearing from you!
