- a roundup of news from St.Andrew's

Sunday 29th April this year is a rather special day, and there are major changes in timings for the day.

  • Because it's a 5th Sunday in the month there will be only one service that morning, and that's at 10:00am.
  • Within the context of the morning service we'll be holding our Annual meeting to give as many people as possible the opportunity to join in this event.
  • The service and meeting will be followed by a shared lunch in the church hall.

Please do plan to come along and be part of the morning's events. There'll be a sign up sheet in sheet for the lunch to help us with the catering, or as usual send us a message via the church office.

The next Alpha Course at St. Andrew's will start on Wednesday 18th April, with an Introductory "Taster" evening, exploring the topic, "Is there more to life than this?" Why not come and see for yourself - No cost!  No obligation to come to further evenings! No pressure!

If you're interested and 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., or just turn up on the Wednesday evening - you'll be very welcome.

*** If you can't get on a Wednesday evening we are planning another course on a Monday evening at Sadberge, starting Monday 23rd April.

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?

You'll find a variety of styles in our worship and plenty of folks to help you.
