The next Alpha Course begins in early September

We had a great Alpha Course this past Summer, and now we're into the holiday break. We're already planning the Autumn course which will begin in early September,  probably on Wednesday 11th, with a "Pizza & Puds evening" and featuring an introduction to the course. If you want to sample an evening before committing yourself to more this is the evening for you. If you'd like to see what its all about it's OK to just turn up on the evening. And of course if you want more information 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.

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. 

After trying it out for a night there's no commitment to any further meetings so why not come and see, though we think you'll enjoy it. If you cannot commit to the whole course at this stage just come along for a few nights and see how you get on! 

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 2019 season is from Wednesday 6th March, and continues through until the end of November.

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

The National Heritage Open Days

The next National Heritage Opening Days are in September each year. St. Andrew's takes part with many other places which are 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. 

For more information see our Food Bank Page.
