Welcome to Holy Trinity
and St Andrew’s
especially if you are making your first visit
to one of our churches today.
We are a vibrant and growing ‘Word and Spirit’
church family whose passion is
to see people transformed by Jesus,
to encounter God’s transforming presence today,
through worship, teaching
and the ministry of the Holy Spirit,
and to be equipped and empowered to serve God
“out there” in the world.
We would be glad to pray with you about anything.
The Church’s prayer for the second Sunday before Advent
Heavenly Lord,
you long for the world's salvation:
stir us from apathy, restrain us from excess
and revive in us new hope that all creation
will one day be healed in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
