St.Andrew's Church - the way things are now ...

With the closure of St Andrew’s Church in March of last year, because of the Covid-19 Virus, the planned programme of services, events and activities had to be curtailed. This was doubly disappointing so soon after the re-opening of the church in October of 2019.

What those six short months demonstrated was how warm, well-lit and comfortable the church was and how well the new facilities and resources worked, both for services and for activities and events.

The church was allowed to re-open for private prayer in June and for Sunday worship in July. See the new services and opening guide here.

Sadly, the Church Fete, due to take place on the 2020 August Bank Holiday Monday had to be cancelled.

    THERE IS STILL AN OPPORTUNITY TO BUY ZILLAH GILLESPIE’S CELEBRATED HOME-MADE MARMALADE AND LIZ COLLYER’S DELICIOUS PRESERVES, CHUTNEYS AND JELLIES AND SAUCES

    Zillah and Liz have been hard at work during the lock-down.

    They would like the proceeds shared between Wiltshire Air Ambulance, Macmillan Cancer Support, the appeal to help the people of the Diocese of Cueibet in South Sudan and St Andrew’s Church, to help cover church expenses while there haven’t been any services or collections.

    They make lovely Christmas presents. If you would like to buy a jar or two, here’s what to do.

    ZILLAH – MARMALADE
    Telephone Zillah on 01747 828335. Let her know how many jars of marmalade you want at £2.50 a jar. Arrange a time to come to her house. Bring the cash with you in an envelope marked with your name. Come to the back gate in the side lane. The marmalade will be there for you to collect. Leave the money in the bag hanging from the gatepost.
