Miss Naomi Sharp will not be renewing her contract of employment after August. We thank Naomi for her enthusiasm and hard work over the past year and we pray for God's guidance as she looks to take up new employment elsewhere.

St Andrew’s Church believes in Fair Trade.
On Sunday mornings and for church events
we use coffee, tea and sugar that has been bought from
'Traidcraft'.
Traidcraft is an organization supporting and working alongside
small-scale farmers, workers and artisans helping
them to trade their way out of poverty
so that their families and communities can flourish.
Good news!
Our church Traidcraft Stall has re-started again.
This will run on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of every month in the Wesley Hall.
Please speak to Jackie Delisle-Barrow if you would like to see a catalogue
and remember to come prepared to support this.
