NB Sunday morning service, 2 January 10 am

We were all so sorry for the sound problems we had in church last Sunday – which meant that not only did we have to turn off the sound amplification in the church itself, but we also had to turn off the live-streaming.  We hope that everything will be OK this week.  In case of any you would like to catch up on the sermon and prayers, please click here.  (Don’t forget, though, that apart from last Sunday, you can catch up all our 10am services on the St Andrew’s Youtube channel very easily.  


Catch up with Sunday services 

If you cannot come to Church or want to watch the Sunday services again, you can find them on the St Andrew's channel on YouTube. The service booklets can be found here

If you know someone who cannot get to church and does not have access to the internet, please contact Sheila Nunney as it may be possible to record the services to DVD. 


Praying at home

Clergy and retired clergy pray in their homes each day. We invite you to pray as well, at home. 

On Sundays if you cannot join us in church or on Zoom we encourage you to have your own act of worship at the time of the service you would normally attend (8 am, 10 am or 6.30 pm).

There are also links to prayers that you can use at home on this page
