Last Sunday 'the light of the world[ shone in on our 10am service while the new members of our choir were being commissioned. It was a great service and thank you to all who came to welcome our choir back from holidays.
Following the service, the St Andrew's Choir Parents Association (SACPA) provided us with a sausage sizzle, which was well received.
At the same time, our KC team were engaged with our first Kids' Church service for the year. The topic was 'Fishing with Jesus' and the craft component featured decorating a fish - this one has several eyes that follow you around the room!
All children are welcome. Our Kids' Church is on Sunday 5 March at 11.30am.

The next Weekend Services Roster period is from Saturday 11 March until Sunday 25 June 2023. As this includes Easter, it would be most helpful if preference could be indicated for these services by Monday 13 February, especially the Maundy Thursday (7pm) and Good Friday Services - Veneration of the Cross (2pm) and Tenebrae (7pm). We welcome new participants in any of the four roster categories: Welcomer/ Sides-person and Reader (all services); Server and Hospitality (10am Sunday).
