Our first Mission Action Plan proposal document is now available.

Please remember to pick up your copy of the Gospel of Luke and a programme for our 2019 Luke Series.

Copies of our Lent book, Let Me Go There by Paula Gooder are
available at the back of the Church.

The beautiful flowers today are sponsored by John and Debbie in memory of John’s late parents, Joan and Basil.

St Andrew’s is hosting the 2019 World Day of Prayer service at 10am on Friday 1 March. Come and participate in a great wave of prayer encircling the globe, praying and sharing with people in over 120 countries and islands around the world. The Service is followed by refreshments.

Your generous donations have raised almost £850 for each of our appeals: an emergency flood relief fund for the Solomon Islands and fundraising to enable Sr Veronica to take up a prestigious invitation to deliver her paper in Kenya in May.

We will also be holding a cake sale after the 30 minute service on 3 March to raise additional funds towards Sr Veronica’s airfare.

NEW ELECTORAL ROLL for St Andrew’s has to be prepared. No names will be carried forward from last year’s roll to the new one. To be included on the roll you must fill in an application form and return it no later than Sunday 10 March, 2019. You need to be baptised,  aged over 16 and regularly attending worship for at least 6 months to be eligible. Your membership is an essential reflection of the congregation of St Andrew’s and entitles voting at the Annual Parish Meeting, representation on the Parochial Church Council and the various Synods of the Church of England. Please CLICK HERE for more details.

Our presence at Ham Fair on 8 June relies on volunteers and we particularly need to establish help with the gazebos, heavy lifting and van driving at the beginning and/or end of the day. Please let Sarah in the office know if you can help. Thank you.

Rev’d Nicholas Roberts’ book, Addiction and Pastoral Care, has been published by Canterbury Press and is now available as hard copy or electronic.
