In 2012, St. Andrew’s pioneered weaving milk bags into mats that are sent to some desperately poor countries around the world. The method of weaving the milk bags is a new concept.

The team currently meets on Monday mornings from 10:00am – noon and are considering meeting Saturday mornings. If you’d like to get involved or for further information, contact the church office at 905-683-7311 or email
