Welcome to our Worship for Sunday 27 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 

Our main online worship today is a recording of the service in church last Sunday. The reading is 1 Peter 3:8-16, and Janice preaches that we should live as a “people of one mind”, as it’s what God calls us to do. Click the video box below.

We also have a service for children and families:  Click here to open the page.

Open for Sunday worship
St Andrew’s is open for a short service of Holy Communion each Sunday 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.

Andy’s Cafe
We’re pleased to announce that Andy’s Community Cafe will be re-opening next week! For the time being it will be on Wednesdays and Thursdays (10am-2.30pm term time only as usual), so our first day back will be Wednesday 30th September. Masks will be compulsory, other than when seated. A slightly reduced menu will be in operation for now but all our sandwiches, soup, cakes, tea, coffee and soft drinks will all still be available and just as yummy as they ever were! Please come and support us if you can – we can’t wait to serve you again. Mary, Amanda & Ayman

Harvest Donations
This year the food donations given at Harvest will be used by Andy’s Café.  They need:
– pecan nuts and walnuts
– chocolate (for baking)
– flour (plain, self raising, wholemeal, gluten free)
– caster sugar and icing sugar
– Dried apricots, cranberries, coconut and oats.
Please bring any of these items (if you are coming to the service) to St Andrew’s Church on Sunday 27th September, or Sunday 4th October at 10am. 
If you are not able to come in person, or would prefer to give online, we are supporting Woking Food Bank.  Please go to their website for details on how you can donate: woking.foodbank.org.uk
