MESSY CHURCH – Midsummer 2017
Messy Church is taking a break till September, when we resume on the first Tuesday, the 5th.
Do come and join us at the Parish Hall from 3.30 pm for stories, singing and crafts … it’s always
fun and a great time to get together – and of course, there is food! And it’s free!
Everyone is welcome, but children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Children’s Society News

The Children’s Society home collection boxes this summer have raised £652.05.  Our profound thanks to all those who continue to support this wonderful charity.
If you would like a box in which to collect all your odd change – and you’d be surprised to see how quickly it builds into such a worthwhile amount! – then please contact Brenda on 440755, or Christine on 440717.  Thank you!

Light a Candle

Those of you who visit churches whilst on holiday or travelling will have often seen Votive Candle Stands where you may light and leave a candle as a living sign of a prayer, to cherish the memory of a loved one, to give thanks, or merely to contemplate where you are in the grand scheme of life.
There is now such an opportunity in your parish church of St Andrew; it can be found in the Lady Chapel, near the small altar on the right hand side of the Nave.
It is available for our community and visitors alike, including all who have no specific commitment to the Christian faith.  If you wish, you may leave a small donation but it is by no means necessary or expected.
Each year a charity will be chosen and the whole of that year’s donations will be made to it.
For the current year it is the Amos Trust (amostrust.org).
