A Lenten journey through the desert

This year’s focus for Lent at St Andrew’s is the desert – on the face of it, an arid, lifeless, depressing place, but in fact full of life, love and beauty. Details of the five-week Lent course (which begins in the first week of March) are here.

Stewardship Sunday

Sunday 8 February is this year’s Stewardship Sunday at St Andrew’s. A summary of last year’s finances is being sent to all church members. Overall, giving was up to nearly £71,000; total income was nearly £84,000, but expenditure was £500 more. Those who would like to give regularly by standing order can use this form (which also has GiftAid information).

Mission and Giving Update

The January report [pdf] from the Mission and Giving group is now up, together with a summary for 2008 [pdf], listing all the projects St Andrew’s has contributed to in the last year. Both of these documents can be found on the Mission and Giving page, along with more details of the projects we’re supporting.
