Children's work: the Junior Church meets during the 10.00am Eucharist every Sunday with a group of helpers led by trained teachers; there are occasional outings & parties; special services and other activities take place from time to time. We hope to give fresh impetus to the Youth Group in the near future. The Parochial Church Council has adopted guidelines produced by the Diocese to promote the care and protection of children. We are exploring the possibility of engaging a part-time worker for children and young people.
Prayer, Worship & Study: lies at the heart of the Parish's life. In addition to Sunday services, there is a regular pattern of weekday Eucharists. On major holy days professional singers have regularly contributed to the Solemn Eucharist. Small, home-based groups meet on a regular basis for bible study, to discuss topical issue from a christian perspective and to explore meditative prayer. The Choir and the small team of young Altar Servers play an important part in our worship.
Drama: The St Andrew's Dramatic Society (SADS), founded at St Andrew's Church seventy-five years ago, continues to offer not only the chance to become involved with amateur dramatics (with Spring and Autumn productions each year), but also a round of social activities!
The Church Hall is also used throughout the week by independent groups, offering a range of activities, including: Step Aerobics for women; Dog Training; Kumon Maths teaching and Ladies keep Fit! We can put you in touch with the leaders of these different groups.
