Room in Africa

A group of our young Christians have committed to raising £10,000 to support 'Hands at Work' in Africa to help build feeding stations and improved sanitation in African villages.  If all goes well they also hope to go out to Africa in July 2015 to get 'hands on' with 'Hands at Work' and orphans that they support.

More details to follow, but if you would like to support them you can donate via our MyDonate page - all donations made via the site will go to the Room in Africa fund.

PARKING AT ST ANDREW'S

If the church car park is full, please make use of the FREE public car park in St Andrew's Street. It is within 150m of the church and is usually empty on Sunday mornings and in the evenings.

Please also take great care when entering or leaving the church car park in Ivel Gardens. Be especially watchful for pedestrians as you cross the path, and other vehicles travelling along Ivel Gardens.
