Coronavirus Update

Updated 03/07/2020 2.00pm

In the last two weeks the Government has made a series of announcements allowing churches to slowly reopen. On Monday 22nd St Andrew’s opened for ‘Private prayer’ allowing our community to come and pray individually, or with the aid of a team member.

You will find the church open

Monday to Thursday from 10.00am – 12 noon

Sunday afternoon from 2.00 – 3.00pm

In more recent days the Government has announced that we can open once again for services. The Church leadership at St Andrew’s will once again review the policies and procedures announced to allow this to happen and will then inform the community of our intention to open, in a safe and secure way.

For further details about our Church building opening for Private Prayer, go back to the HOME page and find the box entitled CHURCH OPEN FOR PRAYER

Our hope is that we continue to come together in our different places to find unity and fellowship in our worship of God.  

A Prayer from the Methodist Church during this time of uncertainty and worry.

God of all hope we call on you today.
We pray for those who are living in fear:
Fear of illness, fear for loved ones, fear of other’s reactions to them.
May your Spirit give us a sense of calmness and peace.
We pray for your church in this time of uncertainty.
For those people who are worried about attending worship.
For those needing to make decisions in order to care for other
For those who will feel more isolated by not being able to attend.
Grant us your wisdom.
Holy God, we remember that you have promised that
Nothing will separate us from your love – demonstrated to us in Jesus Christ.
Help us turn our eyes, hearts and minds to you. Amen
