Sausages await us afterwards (or even before if you are early).


Wednesday - FIRBANK

Firbank Grammar's Senior School students came to St Andrew's on the first day of term for their Annual Commencement Service. Great to see the church full of students again after the holidays.


Friday - BGS induction of new chaplain



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). Please contact the Parish Office
