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 finished product is much softer.

  • It takes significantly less time and is easier on the hands.

  • It’s a fun team effort.

Recently our local newspaper wrote an article about our amazing mat weaving group called Group in Ajax weaves mats for children.

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
