Lifeteen

Sundays, 1:30 – 3:30 PM (except long weekends)

Your faith is not meant to be lived by yourself. It is meant to be lived in relationship with Jesus, and with friends. 

At St. Andrew's Cathedral, we provide a space and time when you can experience Jesus, learn about him, and become friends with other people your age who also want to have this relationship with God. We hope that through our events, the relationships you form with our team members and friends, and personal encounters with Jesus, that you will become a lifelong disciple. 

We host Lifeteen every Sunday (except long weekends) in the basement of the Cathedral (access off View Street) from 1:30 – 3:30 PM.
