As we head into the peak Summer holiday season, and a break for most church organisations, we are holding an End-of-Term BBQ.

Saturday 15th July is the date to put in your diaries, from 5pm in the church hall and it's grounds.

This promises to be a great evening, with good BBQ'd food, plenty to drink and great fellowship on a pleasant Summer evening.

More information will be available nearer the time.

Monday 21st - Wednesday 23rd August

Holiday at home is a three day time of fun and cheer in the middle of the August holiday period.

Mainly for men and women of mature years, but essentially for those still young at heart who would like to join others for some enjoyable activities and good company.

Collect an application form from church or the church office.

The next Shared Lunch takes place on Sunday 30th July after the 10:30am morning service. (Note the earlier start on that day) It will start at about 12:15pm.

This follows the pattern of having only one morning service whenever there's five Sundays in the month plus the lunch.

There'll be sign up list  in church to indicate if you hope to be there. If you're visiting on the day don't worry if you haven't booked in, or if you havn't brought a contribution - there's always enough - please just join us, you're most welcome.

Please do come and join us, and spend some quality time with other members of the church.

In addition to the normal range of services St. Andrew's will be open for heritage visits, prayer and reflection at the following times:

March, April, October, November - Wednesday 10.15am – 3.15pm

May to September - Wednesday 10.15am – 4.15pm

Stewards will be present to assist you, as necessary. Leaflets detailing the heritage of the church are available. The Boathouse Cafe is also open in the Church Hall on a Wednesday morning and is well worth a visit.

New to St. Andrew's? Not to worry all our services are "user friendly"; you'll find a warm welcome, a variety of styles and plenty of folks to help you.

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.

STOP PRESS: At the moment we've had so much demand on our services that we're looking for more donors. If you can make a contribution please drop off your contributions at the church office any weekday morning. Thank you to all our contributers.
