Annual Parochial Church Meeting

We are very grateful to Colin Clark (Deanery Synod), Sharon Bourne, Brian Clegg, and Donna Kelly for joining the PCC joining Bill Thorpe and Susan Jennings as PCC members elected at the APCM.  However, an even bigger thank you is due to Tony Jones who has stood down from PCC after 17 years.

Kingdom Coffee House

We are keen to support the independent Christian Coffee Shop in Redhouse (SN25 2NT) and get to know one another better so come along on 15th May at 1.30pm to chat to other members of St Andrew’s.

Swindon Food Collective

As you will know, Swindon Food Collective has taken over the work of the foodbank, but some changes have been made to the organisation. As St Andrew’s is a keen supporter of the Food Collective Clare Collier from Food Collective will be speaking to us on Sunday 12th May during the 10am service about how we can support them even more. Please come along to hear her.

Christian Aid Week

We will be collecting for Christian Aid Week at our services on 19th May. Please look out for the gift aid envelopes.

The annual prayer initiative will run from Ascension Day on 30th May to Pentecost on 9th June. Our main focus will be on Saturday 1st June when St Andrew’s will be open for prayer from 10am -1pm. Please drop in to pray for our friends and our nation.

Forging Connections: 9th May at Gateway

If you’d like to know more about all the Christian charities in Swindon and how you can help them through volunteering, giving and prayer come along to Gateway Church (SN5 7AR or Sally can give you a lift) on 9th May at 7pm to hear about the very valuable work they all do. See poster on noticeboard for more details.

Prayer Space at Tadpole Farm CE Primary Academy

We will be running a prayer space at Tadpole Farm again on 4th and 5th June. Please speak to Sally if you could help out for an hour or two.

Would you like to be confirmed?

Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey when you state your intention to live a life of committed discipleship, following Jesus. Preparation involves discussing different aspects of the Christian faith and asking any questions you have. Then there’s a service with other churches in Swindon when the bishop prays for you and you are confirmed in your faith. If this is something you’d like to consider this year, please speak to Sally.


Please pray for the new Parochial Church Council and particularly that the new members will settle in quickly.

Also pray for the charities we support, particularly Swindon Food Collective and Christian Aid who we are focussing on this month.
