The current Alpha Course at St. Andrew's, which began on Wednesday 18th April, is well under way. While you could still join on a Wednesday evening it would probably be better to be thinking about coming on the next course, due to start in September.

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

To be kept in touch or want more information do let us know via the church office (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or directly contact Mark, the Vicar at rThis email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Alpha is a series of sessions exploring the basics of the Christian faith. Each evening looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. It meets weekly for about 12 weeks, and includes an "away day".

Alpha is run all around the globe in cafés, churches, universities, homes - you name it and everyone's welcome. Millions have attended and been helped by it - will you be one of them?

In addition to the normal range of services St. Andrew's is open and manned on many Wednesdays throughout the year for heritage visits, prayer and reflection. The 2018 season begins on Wednesday 7th March, and continues through until the end of September.

March, April, October, November - Wednesdays 10:15 - 3:15pm,
May to September - Wednesdays 10:25am - 4:15pm.

The National Heritage Open Days

The next National Heritage Opening Days will be in September 13th to 16th 2018. We take part and St. Andrew's with many other places will be open locally, regionally and nationally. Please support these events.

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.
