St. Andrew's Day this year in on Friday 30th. November.

As our patron saint we always like to remember the day in some way, and as a notable fisherman what better than with a Fish & Chip supper!

This year we've invited back to the parish Baz & Linda Gascoigne, who came and led our "in house" parish weekend earlier this year. Baz and Linda were a great hit then and so we're so pleased that they've agreed to come back for the weekend, so they'll be around on the Saturday and the Sunday morning services.

The Friday evening commences with a Communion Service at 6:00pm, before moving into the meal at about 7:00pm. 

Everyone is welcome, but we do ask you to book in for the meal since we have to pre-order the fish and chips from the local chippy. As usual the church office is your first port of call for more enquiries.

The Autumn Alpha Course has begun at 7pm on a Wednesday evening in the Church Hall and will last for some 11 weeks. It's not too late to come along just let us know you'd like to come, or it's OK to just turn up on the evening. And of course if you want more information about what it's all about then we'd be pleased to help you. In the first place e-mail the Parish office at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Remember our slogan when you try it: " No cost!  No obligation to come to further evenings! No pressure!"

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith. Each evening looks at a different question around faith and life and is designed to create conversation. It meets weekly for about 11 weeks, and includes a "Holy Spirit Away Day" at a local venue. During recent years scores of people have attended one of St.Andrew's courses, and many have found faith in or renewed a faith in Jesus.
