Reflecting, Praying, and Acting Together

Lent Course 2017

(Tuesday 19:30-20:45, repeated on Wednesday 10:45-12:00)

This Lent course is all about seeking first God’s Kingdom in the context of all that is happening in the world at the present time. What does this mean in practical terms, and how can we – as God’s people – become the agents for God’s rule in a tangible way? … the first response must be prayer: earnest, intentional and committed prayer, asking that God may be the centre of all life and that God’s rule and authority may be taken seriously in the affairs of this world. In this context, we are suggesting ways in which God’s people, acting together, might work for a more just and equitable society in the places where they live.

Parish Breakfast 30 January 2016

We invite you to join us for a tasty breakfast and to hear about SA-Yes, one of our new Stewardship Initiatives.

It’s an unfortunate circumstance that South African youth living in children homes lose government support from the age of 18. SA-Yes offers much-needed support and guidance for children and young people in South Africa via a mentorship programme.

….An extract from their website reads:-

….We provide youth leaving children’s homes with guidance that will enable them to develop
their skills, further their education and source suitable housing, in order for them to participate
in society as independent, mature, responsible adults.

….So please join at St Andrews at 8h30am on the 30th of January for a scrumptious breakfast and to hear SA-Yes tell us about this fantastic initiative.

….Please RSVP by Tuesday the 26th of January for catering purposes in the following ways:-
List at back of Church ….or Email: d.hoff@mweb.co.za
Any queries can be addressed to David Hoffmann on 083 326 4629
or 021 761 2588 ….

Donations to fund the breakfast will be much appreciated on the day
