St Andrew’s Click Send
Whether you have encountered the life at St Andrew’s through baptisms, weddings, other events, or you are just interested, many people like to keep in contact with St Andrews in amongst a busy life. To help this we have St Andrew’s Click Send.

THIS WEEK’S PEW SHEET
THE PARISH PRAYER
“God our Father, you have made us members of Christ and of his church in this parish. May our worship be the offering of our hearts and live to you. Help us to reach out in welcome to newcomers and visitors, to encourage and care for each other in friendship and fellowship, and to grow in grace and in love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”
A PRAYER FOR A NEW PRIEST AT ST ANDREW’S
“Bountiful God, give to this parish a faithful pastor who will faithfully speak your word and minister your sacraments; an encourager who will equip your people for ministry and enable us to fulfil our calling. Give to those who will choose wisdom, discernment and patience, and to us all give warm and generous hearts, for Jesus Christ’s sake. Amen.”
CAR BOOT SALE ON SATURDAY JULY 1
From 8 am on Saturday the increasingly well-known Car Boot Sale will be held in the church’s Fuller Street Car Park. Come as a seller ($10 per site) or come as a buyer. All sorts of treasures on sale. And a sausage sizzle and morning tea. It finishes at 12 noon.
Sunday July 23rd at 4.30 pm in St Andrew’s. Come and join lots of other people in singing your favourite hymns … “Community Hymn Singing.” This was a great hit when we last did it. Once we have sung ourselves out, we go to the Parish Centre next door at about 5.30 pm for hot soup and crusty bread. This is a great community event for everyone who like to sing and who likes winter soup – real “winter fare.”
