For more than 100 years, St. Andrew's Church has been a self-supporting church serving the village of Hepworth and surrounding area. The well-maintained, sturdy red brick building with beautiful stained-glass windows, is at the corner of Highway #6 and Bruce County Road #8 in the centre of the village, across from Tim Hortons.
Inside the 100-seat sanctuary are: the original ornate woodwork, an antique pipe organ, plush carpet and a spacious platform for the choir and a lovely old wooden pulpit. The congregation consists of a regularly attending core group of about 30.
The majority of the members are middle-aged and seniors from a variety of backgrounds. Many of these have multi-generational roots in the community. On entering this traditional county church one can sense the friendly small-town atmosphere.
