Making Disciples Course

This is an exciting new, yet richly old way of talking about discipleship and spiritual formation. It takes place over eight sessions and will involve video content/teaching and practical tasks to help us understand what it means to be a 'disciple' rather than just a 'believer' and how we can continue to grow in our discipleship. 7.30pm each Wednesday, meeting in the Gouldsmith Room in the church hall. More information is available from the Rector or Church Office. E-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Understanding who we are in Christ


In church we hear sermons on the “I am’s” of John’s gospel in relation to who Jesus is, "I am the light of the world", "I am the way the truth and the life", "I am bread of life", etc.

But maybe not so often the “I am’s” of our own lives – who God makes us as we live out our Christian lives in relation to Him. Arguably understanding just what God has done and does for us is essential to live a fulfilled life, as Jesus promises in John 10:10, “I have come in order that they may have life, have it to the full.”

Thomas Cooley wrote “I am not who I think I am, I am not who you think I am, I am who I think you think I am!” That can be taken very negatively but when we see ourselves as God sees us it can be life transforming! This series of sermons running through until March will look at some of these topics. Here are some of the first ones for January.

‘I am made in the image of God’

Theologians distinguish between the Incommunicable attributes of God (e.g. Omnipotence, Omnipresence, Omniscience) and the Communicable ones.
We share with God many wonderful abilities. We are creative, have intelligent minds capable of great thoughts. Able to love, show mercy, forgive etc.

St. Andrew's Food Bank exists to provide food for people in need. If you find you cannot provide food for your family, whatever the reason, the Food Bank can help to tide you over until you're on your feet again.

The Food Bank is normally open every week. Call at St Andrew's Church Hall off Haughton Greeen, on a Thursday afternoon, 1:30 to 2:30pm.

We are always looking for more donors to replenish our supplies! Will you help?

We are giving out over 100 tins a week, the average week is 14 bags, with 8 tins/bag. Please add a couple of tins to your shopping this week -soup, beans, tomatoes, fish, meat, fruit and vegatables are all needed.

If you can help us please drop off your contributions at the church office any weekday morning or contact the church office to arrange a pick up. Thank you to all our contributers whose generosity is priceless. 

For more information see our Food Bank Page.
