Tuesday, July 28th 2020
the 2nd August
(no virtual communion)
THERE WILL BE ANOTHER
And the theme will be:
'Giving & Sharing'
We'll do our best to involve the children so they won't be bored,
but, as ever,
WEL'LL NEED YOUR HELP TO DO THAT
Please have your children sitting where they can clearly see your device screen
(we do understand this isn't easy!)
...and have a candle ready, that your child or children can safely light
.... maybe have a prayer cushion ready for them to kneel on during prayers
...& if you have any percussion instruments at home - or even a saucepan and a spoon, have them ready
Please start logging-in by
- it is not necessary to
download to join in!
(please note - it’s difficult for us
to admit latecomers entering the
‘Waiting Room’ after we start at 10am.)
Please sign up on the eNews link to be sent log-in details
The words of hymns and readings should all be visible on your screen, but we are including the link to them as well, in case you want to print them.

Jonathan Daniels, who does a sterling job of
organizing our list of Sunday ‘Readers’,
is rather short of reading volunteers,
particularly for our ZOOM Services,
and especially at the moment,
with people starting to go away on holiday.
If you’d like to help out by joining our
Reading Team, please email Jonathan at:
Our 'ZOOM' Evening of Favourite Books is nearly here!

We are pleased to tell you that St. Andrew’s will be open for public worship on Sunday, August 9th, for a short, said, socially-distanced, Covid-aware, 9am Communion Service,
but we will be required to restrict the numbers attending.
There can only be 17 single seat attendees, with up to a maximum of 30 in family groups or ‘bubbles’ – we strongly advise the wearing of facemasks, and will have to refuse entry to any who turn up without a booked place.
Rest assured, we will also continue to hold a Virtual ZOOM
or streamed Service as well, from the Vicarage, at 10:30am.
We are very grateful to all those who have already
let us know their feelings about returning to church
in person, so that we can now start to allocate places.
Please don’t turn up unless you have had
an email from us confirming your seat.
If you haven’t had a chance to tell us whether you,
or you and another family member
would like to come to the service,
on August 9, 16, 23 or 30,
please let me know your thoughts as soon as possible.
Please email me at:
There is no right or wrong in whether being back
in church works for you or not,
whatever you feel is right for you, is right for us,
and we will do our very best to cater to all.

You taught us to love our neighbour,
and to care for those in need
as if we were caring for you.
In this time of anxiety, give us strength
to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick,
and to assure the isolated
of our love, and your love,
for your name’s sake.
