Interregnum Prayer: – Loving God, we continue to pray for your guidance as we reach a significant point in our recruitment for a new vicar . We pray that we might live out our prayer for growth and depend on your Holy Spirit for vision in our planning, wisdom in our actions and growth in spiritual commitment to you. Help us all to be united in prayerfully seeking your will for our future in this parish, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Weekly Prayer Focus – Loving Father, we rejoice in the great love that you have lavished on us – that we are called “children of God”. Help us to look to the glistening purity of Jesus’ life as a model for our own. Amen (1 John 3 1-8)

‘Celebrating Women’ aims to help us get to know ourselves, each other and God a little better. Meeting in St Andrew’s Parish centre we usually meet on the 4th Thursday of the month. We recognise that not everyone can make a Thursday. So in addition we have two Saturday afternoons in the year that begin with a shared lunch. In addition we hope to have two curry nights each year to invite our friends along to – in the same way a Men’s Breakfast might. More details for ‘Celebrating Women’ can be found here on our website http://standrewscofe.org.uk/ celebrating-women/ Our next meeting is Saturday 21st April 1pm – 4pm in the Parish Centre.
ANNUAL PAROCHIAL CHURCH MEETING: will be on Sunday 22nd April in Holy Trinity Church after a shortened morning service.
