Today is Friday 28th January 2022.

Welcome to St Andrew's Wallace Green and Lowick

22.1.22

It's an encouragement that we are able to hold in-person worship each Sunday at 11am and all are welcome. It is, however, a legal stipulation to wear a mask, and we are carrying on with other mitigations to safeguard the congregation and give us all peace of mind in meeting together. Therefore, those attending are asked to wear a mask unless there is an allowable reason for not doing so. 

 

                                                          

                                                                                   

Dear Friends,

As we move forward into this New Year, the uncertainties of the past two years seem to be thrown forward into the days and months to come. The crises facing our communities, country and the world are mounting by the day: the on-going pandemic, the threat of war in Europe and elsewhere, and the rising cost of living are just some of the many challenges that we can anticipate in 2022. Such a bleak prospect could lead to despair if it weren't for our faith that, come what may, we journey into the future with God by our side. This is not, of course, a guarantee that all will turn out as we hope, nor that God blesses our every action. It is, however, a reminder that we are never left completely to our own devices as we pass through the storms, and if we are open to God's help, God will guide and strengthen us for whatever comes.    

Every Blessing in the New Year, Adam
