Welcome to our Worship for Sunday 1 November

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

Families: please visit our special page for today which includes a special drama by members of our church family: Saul’s conversion on the road to Damascus. There are also  activities and ideas for family worship. Click here

Today for our main on-line worship we present a “live” recording of the service in church last Sunday, 25 October, led by Julie. The reading is from Matthew Chapter 24, verses 30-35. It was Bible Sunday and in her sermon Chris reminds us that the Bible is God’s love gift for every one of us, and God’s Word changes lives. 
The songs /hymns are: “Come on and Celebrate”, “In Christ Alone” , “The Servant King  (From Heaven You Came)” and “In Christ Alone”. You’ll find the words on the screen.

Open for Sunday worship
St Andrew’s is open for a short service of Holy Communion each Sunday at 10am. As there are limited numbers, according to Government regulations, we ask you to register your wish to attend a service by emailing Liz at pastoral@standrewsgwp.org with your name(s) and telephone number; you will receive a phone call in the week prior to the Sunday to invite you that service. There is no pressure to return to the church building (we will be continuing “on line” worship resources alongside “on site” services) but if you choose to, please make your own risk assessment based on your situation. Please be assured we are strictly adhering to Government and Church of England guidance including social distancing, wearing of face masks, no singing or refreshments.

The family Poppy Quest at St Andrew’s
From 1st -15th November there will be a display of eleven poppies in the windows of St Andrew’s Church building which will be visible from the outside.  You’re encouraged to go on a poppy hunt, and to reflect on the meaning of Remembrance, while trying to solve the anagram of letters seen next to each poppy.  There’s a poem here to help you!Small groups of family members, friends, school children, scouts or guides groups are very welcome – please remember to maintain a social distance of 2m from other groups. Please be aware that Andy’s Café may be open, and that there is CCTV on the building.

Remembrance Sunday
Due to the current restrctions there  will be no large gathering outside or parade this year in Goldsworth Park. However we will have a  Remembrance Service inside the church at 10am which will be streamed LIVE here on Worship this Week. It will include the Last Post and two minutes silence at 11am.
