‘Is not wisdom found among the aged? Does not long life bring understanding?’ Job 12:12
St Andrew’s Contact Group ensures that people living on their own and those who are becoming more elderly can continue to be included in the life of the wider community.
OUR VOLUNTEERS - In September 1990, a group of volunteers began undertaking neighbourly activities in a spirit of friendship and care. This work continues today, and no one need feel alone, or left out, or isolated from the life of the wider community. Our volunteers continue to share Christ’s love in practical ways by being a friend, help with shopping, offering lifts for medical appointments, organising outings and Pop-In Teas.
Join us in the Church Hall, FROM 2PM TO 4PM ON THE 2ND TUESDAY OF EVERY MONTH, preceded by Holy Communion at 1.30pm.
Tea, cakes and sandwiches accompanied by fun quizzes and often some entertainment are on offer for a modest donation.
Everyone is welcome to attend.
'Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.’ Proverbs 22:6
The hall is buzzing with conversation. Around a table adults and children burst into laughter as they wrestle with metallic tubing and googly eyes and their teenage helpers despair of ever creating the promised artefact.
A toddler slaps green paint on a huge sheet of card under the watchful eye of a Granny (not sure if they’re related or not – it doesn’t really matter). A five-year-old watches wide-eyed as an enthusiastic leader shows her how to bang in a nail. All the while there’s a delicious smell wafting out of the kitchen. Don’t miss it!
EVERY 3RD TUESDAY FROM 3.30PM TO 5.30PM in the Church Hall.
Messy Church at St Andrew’s is a Christian-based learning and worship environment – great for primary aged children their parents and carers. Come along straight after school for:
- An open, friendly, caring environment for all parents, carers and children.
- Christian input and fun learning, to help relate Christianity to our daily lives.
- Themed activity stations with fun craft activities that do not cost you money.
We look forward to welcoming you 🙂
