Christian Aid Week
In these unusual times, it is unlikely that you will have someone knocking at your door doing the usual house-to-house collection for Christian Aid Week. However, there is still an easy way to give.

The United Reformed Church has partnered with Christian Aid in an initiative called Give Thanks For Your Vaccine.The idea is that we recognise how fortunate we are to live in a country where the Covid-19 vaccines are free and available, by donating to help those parts of the world where this is not the case.

Please do consider donating to this great cause and suggesting it to family, friends and neighbours. Christian Aid is already working to help keep people safe from coronavirus with practical support, but with donations the charity can do more.


A message from our Minister

Dear friends,

As we continue the journey out of lockdown it is good to know that activities are starting up and many of us are able to do more things. Yet we are still living with understandable restrictions that we need to follow. Many have not yet been vaccinated, and we are living with the impact of the deaths of so many people over the past year, some of them our friends and family. All is not glorious and light.

The reading this week from John's Gospel continues on from last week's encouragement to bear fruit and finishes with the injunction to love one another. In the midst of a global pandemic and in Christian Aid Week it is good to remember that we are not asked to love only those who are close to us.

In line with Elders' earlier decision, we are preparing to restart 'in person' worship at Wallington on Pentecost Sunday (May 23). People from WURC are welcome to join with St Andrew's, who have resumed meeting for worship each Sunday. However, there are still strict conditions around social distancing, no singing, and the need for participants to disperse immediately after the service finishes.

In the meantime we shall continue to provide our usual weekly audio service through the website and telephone line (020 3870 2810).

Yours in Christ,
Rev Craig Bowman

Together Apart

In these unsettling and fast-changing times, we are committed to being the church - a community that seeks to care for one another, pray with each other and worship together. While physical restrictions are in place there is still much we can do.

Each Sunday we are providing an audio-only service for both St Andrew's and Wallington United Reformed Churches, so that people can share in worship together. This will be available from 10.30 on the Sunday morning, but will then remain available via the church websites. We hope that people will be able to join in at the same time, starting at 10.30 each Sunday, thereby building that sense of gathering together while we remain apart.

A variety of other worship resources, including suggestions for daily prayers and bible readings, as well as activity sheets for children and families, can be found on our Worship Resources page.
