25/11/20: Covid-19 Update

The St. Andrew’s Building will remain closed in December, apart from Christmas Day.


The news about vaccines means there is light in the darkness, however, the elders have decided that for now we will not be re-opening the building. With numbers currently very high in our area we feel that to re-open and put others at risk would be counter to our faith.


On the bright side, please remember that although the building is closed, we are the Church, and we are still open for business. We are still worshiping, praying, loving and serving God. There is an online carol service in the works, and maybe even a Nativity and a concert too. There will be weekly worship videos uploaded, and anything else we think of!


It may feel a little grey and dreary at the moment, but I hope you will join me in a journey through advent, a colourful journey that will take us from the 29th of November through to Epiphany on the 3rd of January! Exploring the Christmas & Epiphany story using colours and words.


I hope that week by week this will allow you to experience and explore the Christmas story in both familiar and new ways. An old story presented in a fresh way. May the colours of Christmas be a blessing to you and your family, filling you anew with the hope and joy that Jesus brings.


I look forward to seeing some of you for Christmas Day worship at 10.30 am when we celebrate THE light in the darkness with a traditional service of lessons and carols.


With love

Revd Jo.
