Contact Group

Is not wisdom found among the aged? Does not long life bring understanding?’ Job 12:12

St Andrew’s Contact Group ensures that people living on their own and those who are becoming more elderly can continue to be included in the life of the wider community.

Our volunteers

In September 1990, a group of volunteers began undertaking neighbourly activities in a spirit of friendship and care.  This work continues today, and no one need feel alone, or left out, or isolated from the life of the wider community.    

Our volunteers continue  to share Christ’s love in practical ways by being a friend, help with shopping, offering lifts for medical appointments, organising outings and Pop-In Teas.  

COVID-19 update – St. Andrew’s Contact Group remains suspended for the time being.  We will let you know when we know it is safe, and feel ready to resume.

Loving God, 
source of healing and comfort,
fill us with your grace, that the sick may be made whole,
that those who care for us may be strengthened,
that the anxious may be calmed,
and those most vulnerable be protected
in the power of Spirit and in the faith of Jesus Christ our Lord. 

We look forward to the time when we can join together again in the Church Hall, from 2.00 – 4.00 pm on the 2nd Tuesday of every month, preceded by Holy Communion at 1.30 pm – with tea, cakes and sandwiches accompanied by fun quizzes and often some entertainment, all for a modest donation.   

Everyone is welcome to attend.
