This Sunday we celebrate the start of Advent and our sermons will be on this subject.
At the 9am service Nigel Lowe will be preaching and using the reading Jeremiah 33:14-16
At 10.30am Harry Latham will be preaching using the reading Isaiah 9:6-7. Do read ahead to become familiar with the text.
At the Coffee Shop we are selling items from Dalit Candles who, through the sale of their candles and soaps, provide orphanages and schools in India. Plus Christmas items on behalf of Helen & Douglas House the world’s first children’s hospice which opened in 1982 and in 2004 opened a hospice specially for young adults. And for the next few Sundays the Coffee Shop will be open after the service at St. Andrew’s for you to buy gifts or cards. Come and buy a gift that will make a difference.
A little reminder that this is the last week to complete your box for Operation Christmas Child. Every shoebox brings joy, hope and smiles to a child whose life has been haunted by poverty, disaster, disease or war. Our planned destinations this year are Zambia, Romania, Serbia, Belarus and Ukraine.
You can check the Operation Christmas Child website to get full details of what you can include in your shoebox or pick up a leaflet from the church office.
Please make sure your shoebox is delivered to the church office by this Sunday,
17th November. Many thanks.
