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. In this season of Easter and in the midst of Spring it does feel a more hopeful time. 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.

In this, our experience echoes the days following that first Easter. After the horrendous death of Jesus, his followers were without hope but, as encounters were experienced and narrated, joy broke through and hope abounded. And yet ... as we shall hear this Sunday there was still doubt and fear amongst the disciples and we know they were sheltering behind locked doors.

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.
