Becoming a member - We encourage you to attend worship services and other activities at St. Andrew’s to see if St. Andrew’s feels like the right church for you. If you have any questions about the church and membership, you may speak to Rev. Elizabeth Randall or Rev. Melissa Adzima.

Acolytes - The acolytes of St. Andrew’s serve God in the Church and in this parish by preparing for, assisting and participating with the clergy and people in the celebration of public worship on Sundays and Holy Days.

Coffee Hour Host - Every Sunday, individuals, families, or groups host coffee hour after the services. In addition to bringing some food, hosts help set up, make coffee and clean up the room, and meet and greet visitors and friends, making everyone feel welcomed at St. Andrew’s. We are grateful for the steady, persistent, and gracious way that so many people volunteer to host coffee hour. Many people have done so repeatedly; many have shared a special birthday or anniversary by hosting coffee hour. It is such a wonderful way to meet new friends and to welcome newcomers into our life together that it is a ministry that is not only important, but very easy and enjoyable.

EfM (Education for Ministry) -  A theological distance learning program offered through the University of the South and offered at St. Andrews, in conjunction with the Church of the Holy Redeemer, as part of its adult education program.  In the past sixteen years 26 students have graduated from EfM groups at St. Andrew’s, and there are many parishioners who participated in EfM groups elsewhere prior to coming to St. Andrew’s.  EfM is designed to enable lay people to discover how to respond to the call of service and carry out their baptismal ministries.  For more information contact Selena Billington or Jennifer Macy at efm@standrewdenver.org

Eucharistic Visitors - A Eucharistic Visitor is a lay person authorized to take the Consecrated Elements in a timely manner immediately following the Sunday celebration of Holy Eucharist to members of the St. Andrew’s congregation who, by reason of illness or infirmity, are unable to be present at the celebration of the Holy Eucharist on any given Sunday. The role of Eucharistic Visitor is defined by the national canons of the Episcopal Church, and each Eucharistic Visitor is trained and licensed by the Diocese of Colorado and serves under the direction of the clergy. This ministry involves a significant commitment of time on any given Sunday. Our Eucharistic Visitors can be visiting anywhere from 2 to 6 persons in home, hospital or care facility settings as they engage in a relational ministry of presence as well as carrying the sacrament.
