- Community of St. Andrew
The Community of St. Andrew (CSA) is an Anglican religious order of professed sisters in holy orders or who otherwise serve in diaconal ministry. The community was founded in 1861 by Elizabeth Ferard, with the encouragement of Bishop Tait of London and is based in London, England, in the Diocese of London of the Church of England.
The focus of ministry for the community includes prayer, evangelism, pastoral work, and hospitality. Its first title was "North London Deaconess Instituion" with a house in Burton Crescent and work near King's Cross. On 18 July 1862 Elizabeth Ferard was ordained as the first Deaconess in this renewed order. In 1868 the title was changed to "London Diocesan Deaconess Institution", in 1943 to "Deaconess Community of St Andrew" and in 1987 to "Community of St. Andrew". The Community moved to Tavistock Crescent, Westbourne Park, in 1873 from which the Sisters worked in Notting Dale and many London parishes. The earliest work was the training of Deaconesses, parish work, nursing and teaching. Reference: "The Deaconess Community of St Andrew: 1861-1961" and CSA archives.
