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:
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

Back To Church Sunday

6th September 2015

We are joining with the Churches in Newlands and Claremont in inviting people in the wider community “Back to Church” next Sunday. This is an opportunity to invite friends you know who may not attend Church regularly (or at all) to join us at one of our three services next Sunday.

Pray about who to invite, ask them if they would like to join you at Church next week. If they say yes, offer to pick them up, or if they’ll find there own way here, arrange to meet them at the door. Be aware during the service and help them (and any others around you looking a little lost) to find their way around our prayer and hymn books.

This is part of an initiative begun in the Anglican Church in the UK in 2004, and now embraced by many different Churches around the world in September each year.

Archdeaconry Youth Service

Dear Friends

A reminder that we host the Archdeaconry Youth Service this Sunday (26th) at 18:30. The format of the Service will be much the same as for our monthly Family-focused Services, and although the term “Youth” is used, as always our worship is open to all children of God, no matter your age! We do, of course, particularly encourage parents to ensure our teenagers and young adults join us for this event, please! And there will be refreshments served afterwards.

The preacher/speaker for the evening will be the Youth Coordinator for Growing the Church, Nicole Corlew Curtis. Her theme will be around the questions God asks us.

Looking forward to seeing you!
