For families

We are really excited to be able to meet on Zoom every Sunday morning, where we are exploring God and faith together. This is an interactive meeting which lasts around 30 minutes. If you would like to find out more information or would like the zoom details for the meeting please don't hesitate to contact Lucy here

 

For all

All are very welcome at the weekly Zoom services. On Sundays at 10 am we typically have around 40-50 separate households connected, and for most of the time we're all looking at slides showing the words of the service, so it's easy to 'slip in at the back'! Where possible, we do ask that you keep your camera on, at least initially, for security purposes. 

 

This week at St Andrew's

Thursday 15 April, at 5 pm (in church)

In response to the sad death of Prince Philip at the end of last week, we have made some changes to this week's schedule. 

Our usual service of Evening Prayer at 4 pm on Thursday 15th April via Zoom will not now take place.

Instead, there will be a Service of Commemoration for the Duke of Edinburgh, in church that day at 5 pm, and you are warmly invited to come along for what will be a reflective yet positive thanksgiving for his long life and to remember the Queen and other members of the Royal Family in prayer. 

The service will last approximately 45 minutes, preceded by the tolling of the church bell 99 times.

You will need to book your place in church, either via Eventbrite or by phoning the Vicar, Phil Rodd.

This service will only be taking place in church – there will be no live-streaming or other access via Zoom.
