Fellowship

After the 10.30am Sunday service we always have drinks and refreshments giving us a chance to socialise. We also take every opportunity to celebrate our congregation’s important milestones; such as birthdays, engagements and anniversaries.

Eucharist

Eucharist (from the Greek eucharistia, meaning ‘thanksgiving’) is the Christian sacrament commemorating the Last Supper, in which bread and wine are consecrated and consumed in remembrance of Jesus’ death and resurrection.  The Eucharist is central to our life as a community at St. Andrew’s.

Music is seen as a vital element in our approach to worship. There is a small, dedicated robed choir under the direction of an inspirational Director of Music, which provides the backbone of the music offered on the firstthird and fifth Sundays each month and on major festivals, as well as singing at weddings and funerals when requested. The choir also plays a major part in the monthly Sung Evensong. On the second Sundays there is an All-Age Eucharist which is less formal, with an unrobed choir, while on the fourth Sundays we have our Family Worship with more participation from the children and accompanied by the Music Group.

There is a team of robed servers who assist in the service, and members of our congregation participate in leading intercessions, administering the chalice and reading lessons. We toll the Sanctus Bell during the Eucharist and on special occasions we may use incense.

The Eucharist (said) is also celebrated on Thursday mornings in the Lady Chapel at 8.30 am.
