Introduction

Our summer series for children and families on the book of Daniel has reached week six, with another excellent animated story by the Rayner family – this time Daniel has a prayerful interaction with God and a few lions!  Click here to load the page.

Meanwhile, our main video service for all ages is displayed below.  Janice leads the service which will be “live” at 10am.  We’ve reached the final passage in our Acts 27 series, and Mike Kirtley reflects on Paul’s character, his determination , his kindness and love, not only during the storms he witnessed but throughout his travels.   Click below!

Zoom Church coffee on-line is taking a break during August.

Open for Sunday worship
St Andrew’s will open for a short service of Holy Communion from Sunday September 6, at 10 am. There will be limited numbers, according to Government regulations, and, sadly, no singing. Face masks will be required. If you are among the group of people most vulnerable to Covid-19, Government and Church of England suggestion is that you avoid gathering in church, for now.


St Andrew’s 2020 Summer Series for children on Daniel

Six sessions for Skids (Sunday Kids) on the book of Daniel. Use either one per week or as a “Holiday at Home” club.  Every child in the Bubbles and Xstream groups has been sent a folder full of ideas and activities to do at home as a family. For more details, please contact Karin Rayner at children@standrewsgwp.org

Andy’s Community Cafe re-opening
Mary and Amanda, our Andy’s Cafe managers, are planning to re-open on September 7. This will enable the Food-hub, currently running from the Cafe to continue through August. The first week of September will see a busy period of deep cleaning, re-stocking, baking and re-organising ready for the re-opening. Please let Patrick know if you can help with any of the cleaning or furniture moving in the cafe area.

During August
We are pausing many of our activities to give our wonderful leaders a summer break, so there will be no Fusion, Andy’s Natter or Wednesday Prayer in the Morning on Zoom during August. Thank you to everyone who has tuned in – we will be back!
