CHOICES: on Wednesday 2 October, 6.30-10pm professional educators within St Andrew’s congregation will be offering an evening of advice and support to GCSE and Sixth Form students and their parents on careers and further education. See posters for details.

HARVEST, 5-6 October: As usual we will be collecting items for KCAH, Kingston Churches Action on Homelessness (who have requested pot noodles or tins with ring-pulls please) and Kingston foodbank.

We will be celebrating Harvest this year with a Cream Tea and Flower Festival. Over the weekend of 5-6 October, St Andrew’s will be full of beautiful flower arrangements on the theme of Harvest, and ‘caring and wholeness’. We will be working with ‘Floral Angels’, a charity who reuse flowers from big events, taking them to hospices, hospitals and refuges. There will be music throughout the weekend and particularly on the Saturday afternoon when we will also be serving cream teas. Please invite your friends and neighbours along to enjoy the flowers, scones and music. More details to follow.

The first Welcome Wednesday in the newly refurbished hall is 4th September. Do pop in from 11.15am-1.30pm for tea and cake, lunch, craft activities, table games, toys and facilities for little ones.

Southwark Diocese prayer and spirituality day, To be a Pilgrim, takes place on Saturday 19 October, 10-4pm at Southwark Cathedral. To book, visit https://to_be_a_pilgrim.eventbrite.co.uk

On 13 October after the 10.15 service, the Churchwardens will give a short briefing on the main things happening or being planned in the church. This is to ensure that everyone in the congregation hears directly what our parish agenda is and can ask questions. It will take a maximum of 10 minutes and we hope everyone will find this useful to keep up to date with what’s going on in St. Andrew’s. The briefing will be repeated at the other services that day.

Keep in touch with what’s happening at St Andrew’s by following our Facebook page – St Andrew’s Church, Ham Common.

St Andrew’s welcomes everyone. If you do not receive communion, you are invited to come to the altar rail for a blessing.

To sponsor flowers in Church for a family occasion or in someone’s memory, please contact Sarah in the Parish Office.

If you are planning to make a change to your will, please consider leaving a legacy to St Andrews. Thank you.
