ST ANDREW'S NEWS UPDATE - 16 April 2021

"I am the good shepherd....There will be one flock with one shepherd" John 10 v 11 + 16

As a flock (or you might prefer congregation) at St Andrew's we've been able to stay in touch over zoom in the last year, but it's exciting that soon we should all be able to meet in person once again.  Below you'll find a mix of ways of connecting with one another, our parish and the good Shepherd, some face to face and some on zoom.  Please read carefully and find the new prayer cycle for our parish, an opportunity to deepen your faith and discipleshipover several months, and 2 opportunities to make a difference to the life of St Andrew's, at our annual meeting and annual working party day.  You'll also find all our servicesbelow which are mainly all on zoom and in church until the end of June.

Hoping to see you in person very soon.
God bless
Sally
Revd Sally Robertson, Priest-in-charge




Praying for our parish
Our weekly prayer suggestions take us to a different part of the parish each day of the week.  You'll find ideas to help you pray here.
Exploring Discipleship
If you would like to explore different aspects of following Jesus and spend some time discussing the Bible with 2 other people (face to face or on zoom) and thinking about how it applies to your life, you might like to join one of our discipleship focus pairs.  You'll find details of the 9 part course here.  Please let Sally know if you would like more information.
Contributing to church life
Our Annual Parochial Church Meeting will take place on Wednesday 12th May at 7.30pm on zoom ( http://bit.ly/StANS or by phone dial 0208 080 6592 and enter 813 6651 6924 #).  This is a good time to discuss what's being going on in the life of St Andrew's in the past year and look ahead to the future.  If you would like to be involved in shaping that future and helping us connect with God and our parish, please think about joining the Parochial Church Council.  We meet once a month for 2 hours and have plenty of space for new members.  You'll find more details about joining PCC and our annual report here.
Help us spring clean inside and out!
We've set Saturday 12th June as the annual churchyard and church clearing working party.  There's plenty of gardening, cleaning and clearing out to do (all in a socially distanced way).  So please put the date in your diary and look out for details of how you can help and lend us an hour or more nearer the time.

All our Sunday morning services until the end of June will be at 10am in church and on zoom. There are also details of some evening services.
