Goings On

There’s always stuff going on at St Andrew’s.  Here are some highlights. 

Keep an eye on our Notices for upcoming events and other key announcements

Sunday 23rd May 2021 – on Pentecost, remembering the day when the Holy Spirit burst onto the scene in a dramatic fashion as tongues of fire, empowering Jesus’ friends to fulfil their mission to share the good news of God’s love with the whole world – celebrations at St Andrew’s went off with a bang! Members of our church family shared their artistic gifts to create an incredible indoor firework display 🔥 – yes, you heard, me rockets, sparklers, even a bonfire, and with no need to worry about health and safety !! 
 

Virtual Pilgrimage from St Andrew’s Coulsdon to St. Andrew’s Cathedral Amalfi.

In November 2020 62 faithful pilgrims set out to walk the 1,231.7 miles from St. Andrew’s Coulsdon to St. Andrew’s Cathedral Amalfi.  We made it – and back – safe and sound – blisters, bunions and all!  With a huge well done and grateful thanks to all who cheered, encouraged and refreshed us along the way, we contributed a whopping £1,000 towards our church funds. 

We made it – and back – safe and sound – blisters, bunions and all! 

At times, the road was long … “da che parte per St Andrews Amalfi? Non sembra l’Italia?” … but our will was strong.

With a huge well done and grateful thanks to all who cheered, encouraged and refreshed us along the way, we contributed a whopping £1,000 towards our church funds. 

Pantomime with the St. Andrew’s Players

November is usually Pantomime time with our talented cast and crew with two sell-out performances, delighting the entire community – some memories here of our pantomime fun.

Christmas at St. Andrew’s 
At Christmas time, our love of music comes to the fore, with carolling and musical cheer, not just in church, but around the Community. 

Here are some memories from our Carol singing at Cane Hill.

Haggis & Tatties

After Christmas eats and drinks,  There’s no way you can/should sit still at our Barn Dance – not with Tony and Annie at full throttle!

We can still make time and space for haggis and tatties on Burns Night
Quiet time 

After the hurley-burley of Christmas and New Year, February if our quiet time  to listen to God and reflect on what he is asking us to do – some memories from our time spent at Hilfield Friary in Dorset & Wychcroft House.

Summer Fun at St. Andrew’s 

Summers are usually a fun time outdoor with our young disciples – some memories of our time among the lavender and at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre.

 

We try to hold on to the summer for as long as possible with the sounds, smells and tastes of Africa and the Caribbean at our African-Caribbean Evening

Celebrating Harvest at St. Andrew’s 

As the summer fades into Autumn, we celebrate the Harvest with our Autumn Fair – also with memories from our Angel Festival in 2019.
