Starting at the beginning of January 2019 there is only one morning service at St. Andrew's and willl follow the following pattern:-
1st Sunday: Holy Communion Service
2nd Sunday: "All Together" Service
3rd Sunday: Holy Communion Service
4th Sunday: Service of the Word
5th Sunday: Various formats and usually followed by a "Shared Lunch" in the Church Hall
The ‘All Together’ Service will be very much like the previous "All Age Service". However, the intention is to evolve it over time, building on the success of Family@4 whilst ensuring that the service really does have something for everyone.
We know that this new pattern may be difficult for some. We are also aware that for some, the earlier and often quieter service is their preferred style. However, we would suggest those who feel this way to consider trying worship at our sister church in Sadberge at their 09:15 time. Sadberge is a more traditional Sung Eucharist i.e. singing responses with a strong lead from the good choir. The first Sunday is a Service of the Word, and the following 3 (or 4) are Eucharistic.
After church coffee and biscuits are served in the church hall across the road.
