Welcome to St Andrew, North Swindon!
Creating communities of wholeness with Christ at the centre
We are very happy that you are here: if you would like to talk to someone, do contact us.
Sunday services at 10am are now in church and online. Join us from home using this link http://bit.ly/StANS or by phone dial 0208 080 6592 and enter 813 6651 6924 # when asked. We're continuing to keep the social distancing measures in place and ask you, please, to wear masks when you come into church. The church council will review this in September: we hope you will return to church when you feel ready, but you can also continue to worship with us from home if you prefer. We will be learning to sing wearing masks as well!
If you would like to print the words in advance you'll find them here for Holy Communion and here for Morning prayer. If you'd like help joining us you can find guidance here.
Puzzles and colouring for children can be found here. There is also a children's activity folder in each pew if you join us in church.
We also meet online for Coffee Prayer and Chat on Wednesdays at 11am (words here or here).
Continuing with our support of the parish in prayer, see our suggestions for prayer each day so we can join our prayers for our community together as a congregation.
Help make St Andrew's building as welcoming as we are
As restrictions ease, we are excited to begin welcoming you back to St Andrew's. But our pew cushions are looking sad, and we would like to replace them with comfy new matching cushions. Thank you very much to everyone who has already donated to our appeal to help everyone sit more comfortably in St Andrew's. We have raised enough money so far to purchase 20 of the 29 cushions we need, one for the length of each pew. A new cushion costs £87: could you sponsor a cushion? You can make any size donation at http://bit.ly/StANCush - or use the QR code above*.
* If donations greater than required are received, excess will be added to the church’s General Fund to further the work of St Andrew’s.
Giving to support the church
Without the usual collections, it is difficult to fund the work of the church. To make a one-off donation there are 2 options. To give using a credit or debit card Click here and follow instructions or use this QR code by scanning it with your phone's camera:
