It’s not too late to join the Ephesians discussion group. We’ll be looking at St Paul’s letter to the Ephesians each Sunday until 26 August. To help us understand this great letter better and to give you a chance to argue with the preacher, we are running a discussion group to which everyone is welcome. The discussion group will meet on Tuesdays 10 and 24 July, and 7 and 21 August at 15 Rackham Close, Tadpole Garden Village, from 7:30pm. Everyone is welcome to all, or some, of the sessions; please, if possible, let Sally know in advance if you’re interested.
North Swindon Funday
St Andrew’s is having a stall at the North Swindon Funday from 12:30-5pm on Saturday 1 September in Brook Park (opposite Abbey Park School). If more people can come and help it will mean less time manning the stall for everyone. Please let Sally know if you can spare an hour on the day. Also, please let us know if you have a gazebo we can borrow or any giant garden games.
