Welcome to our Worship for Sunday 13 September

A special welcome if you are  joining us for the first time.  We’d love to welcome you properly, so please click here to send an email: welcome@standrewsgwp.org 

Introduction

Today our service for children and families  is “Samuel hears from God”: Click here to open the page.

For our main online worship today  we are pleased to include the service recorded in St Andrew’s last Sunday morning Sunday, 6 September – our first live service since March. The restrictions means numbers are severely limited. It also needs to be of a shorter length and include a Holy Communion each week.  It was our first attempt to record a service in church so it is not up to the standards we aspire to: our technical people are on on a learning curve, so please bear with us.  

A technical issue affected the sound during the bible reading and the start of Rob’s sermon, so the texts of both are in a document you can DOWNLOAD HERE. You may wish to print this out before starting the recording to avoid swapping between them later.

Open for Sunday worship
St Andrew’s reopened last Sunday 6 September for a short service of Holy Communion at 10am. As you are probably aware, there are limited numbers, according to Government regulations, and, sadly, no singing.  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. For those not able to attend church due to the restricted numbers, we are recording each week’s service and will use it as the basis of our online service the following Sunday, with extras.
