About St. Andrew's Church, Delta

Parish profile:

A Christ centered Biblically inspired community here for you.

St. Andrew's Church, Delta is a charismatic church in South Delta (Tsawwassen) associated with the Anglican Network in Canada (ANIC) and worshiping in the Anglican tradition.  St. Andrew's parishioners are gifted mature Anglican believers of long standing, with strong ministry experience and are actively involved in God's church.  We are a viable, vital, Spirit-filled bible believing Church looking to grow in numbers.

We are established in the essentially English speaking suburban community of Tsawwassen, South Delta, with primarily single family homes (pop 21,000); about a 45 minute drive from downtown Vancouver.   Presently we rent church and special event space from the South Delta Artist’s Guild in Tsawwassen.   We are in the process of seeking another facility to include space for a Sunday school and nursery.  We envision a multi-generational congregation with a dynamic children and youth ministry as soon as facilities are available.  

It is our desire to be an inclusive community where the truth of God's word is lived out.  A community where all people may see and feel the love of God and come to discover His saving grace through Jesus Christ, His son.  A community that brings the Kingdom of God to earth where the gifts and fruit of the Spirit are practised and everyone is spurred on in their spiritual journey.  Our community hosts healing and renewal conferences, teaches bible studies and supports missions and outreach endeavours.


A Brief History:

In 2008, the Tsawwassen start-up, The South Delta Project, under the auspices of Anglican Network in Canada (AniC), was formed with 8 members under the mentoring of Trevor Walters, Archdeacon of ANiC’s Western Region.   This project was incorporated as St. Andrew’s Church, Delta in 2010.   In February 2011 our first AGM was held at which time a Parish Council was elected, and functions according to the ANiC canons and the Articles of Incorporation.   We send a delegate to ANiC synods and have tithed to ANiC since our inception.

Our People

St. Andrew’s Church, Delta was formed in the summer of 2008 under the guidance of the Venerable Dr. Trevor Walters who is now Bishop of Western Canada in the Anglican Church of North America. Since then we have been enormously blessed and equipped with everything needed to establish ourselves as a functioning Christian community. 

St. Andrew, our patron saint, is the apostle who brought people, as well as loaves and fishes, to Jesus so He could transform them.  That is the ministry we are called to.  


Many of us are long time Anglicans, the Spirit Filled kind, who love the Lord Jesus Christ.  We are committed to remaining faithful to Holy Scripture and established Anglican doctrine and practices.  Under the guidance of the Anglican Network in Canada we believe that God has planted St. Andrewʼs in Delta. We believe we are called to proclaim the Gospel, to nurture relationships with Christ Jesus and to the equipping of people for full participation in the Kingdom of God. 


Our Services are centered around the gospel and the Holy Communion; we include liturgical and extemporary prayer, and our worship music is a combination of traditional hymns and contemporary praise. Testimonies are often given on any fifth Sunday in the month.
