First-St. Andrew's United Church, located in the heart of downtown London at the corner of Waterloo and Queens Avenue, is over 190 years old but that does not mean we are stodgy! Our Mission Statement describes us as "an inclusive, Christian family, encouraging spiritual growth through worship, friendship, learning and action."
Our minister, the Rev. Dr. Joshua Lawrence, with a broad smile and touch of a Texas twang, came to us in September 2021 with his young family. Since then, he has inspired us to strive to become a truly inclusive congregation, reaching out to our many communities. Take a peek at the video to meet him and hear about us.
We invite you to browse the site and
come for Worship at 10:30 on a Sunday morning.
There's always a welcome for newcomers at FSA.

What Makes Us Tick.
It's easy to give at First-St.Andrew's
PAR – You can arrange for your donation to be made automatically – called Pre-Authorized Remittance (PAR) – this is the recommended, easiest and most convenient way to donate. It provides the church with much needed funds regardless of whether you can attend church. To sign up for PAR, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for the PAR form to be emailed to you.
You can put cash or a cheque, payable to “FSA United Church,” on the offering plate on Sunday morning. If you use one of the pew envelopes, you will get a charitable receipt. You can also get personal envelopes for your donations – please contact email@example.com to do this.
You can donate online with this link. This quick and easy option allows you to make both one-time and on-going donations.
You can make a direct e-transfer using firstname.lastname@example.org. There is an autodeposit so no password is required. Use the memo box to include your name and address for a charitable receipt and/or to direct your gift to a special fund.
If you have publicly traded securities, it’s possible to donate these securities directly to FSA. This method avoids having to pay any capital gains tax. For details, contact the Chair of the FSA Trustees’ Investment Committee or your financial advisor.
Giving is easy at FSA and by giving you are doing your part to support our growing and vibrant community of faith.
