St Andrews

The demolition of the cedar tree left an unsightly space in the front garden. Happily, this has now been filled with a shrub bed by courtesy of Roger Bradley’s horticultural skill and the significant generosity of another member of the congregation in purchasing shrubs. If you are passing the church during a dry spell please water the bed: a watering can is kept near the bins in the front garden

The Linkage Annual Trip

Lord, you have taught us

without which whoever lives is counted dead before you.
Grant this for your only Son Jesus Christ’s sake,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

Bishop David invites you to his farewell eucharist on the 25th June and writes

 

‘Dear Friends,

 

I’ve become a student of the journey towards retirement.  The first key concept seems to be that of ‘ending well’ – giving thanks for what has been so that the diocese can move forward into the next stage of its life.  We have shared much together – wonderful times and difficult times – and all part of the story of God’s dealing with us.  We need to affirm and celebrate that – and to commit the future life of the diocese to God.

 

The service also marks the 40th Anniversary of my ordination as a priest – at heart we all share that journey of vocation and ministry’.

Baba Yaga

Talented musicians Gwen Sinclair and Karen Dufour are award winning and experienced performers. They have both played with orchestras and chamber groups in Europe and the UK. Together, they have forged an exciting musical partnership discovering new and original repertoire for saxophone and harp.

They will also be playing “Notturno for alto saxophone and harp by Gustav Bumcke. Tickets for all concerts are £10

 O God,

and, because through the weakness of our mortal nature
we can do no good thing without you,
grant us the help of your grace,
that in the keeping of your commandments
we may please you both in will and deed;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
