The story of Saint Andrew’s Church, Lambertville, a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of New Jersey, is the story of a people constantly learning to trust. We’re shaped through intentional worship and prayer, common work, service to others, and, often, playing together—an adaptation of the rule of Benedict. A people of wide diversity, we frequently ask, “What does it mean to be church?” Posing this question and engaging its challenge to us, we’re discovering, is not a betrayal of trust but rather leads to a richer understanding of God’s grace-filled possibilities. Learning to trust calls each of us to reach out and participate in the ministry of a trusting God.

Our most active ministries include:

1. The Saint Andrew’s Choir and Virtual Choir;
2. Support of our close social-service agency and food pantry, Fisherman’s Mark, and the only preschool/ after-care facility in western Hunterdon County, Lambertville Academy;
3. Support of the welcoming and supporting Afghans in need of refuge, facilitated by Episcopal Migration Ministries.
4. Operating a Thrift Store providing new and gently -used clothes’ to individuals and families in the Lambertville area.
5. Support of the Prison Ministry of the Diocese of Newark.
