Someone will greet you with a smile and make sure that you have a copy of our service booklet and the current newssheet (Communique). They can introduce you to someone who will guide you through anything you are not confident about and will invite you to join us for coffee or tea after the service.
- We generally sit or kneel to pray, and stand to sing hymns, say or sing the Gloria and for parts of the Eucharistic prayer. Please sit if you struggle to stand, that is quite acceptable. As a friendly congregation, people will be happy to share the peace of the Lord with you, but a full-scale walkabout is not necessary!
- All communicant members of other churches are welcome to receive communion at St Andrew and St George. We believe that God’s gifts are available to all, and welcome all adults who wish to receive. Children are welcome to come to the front to receive a blessing. If you have not been confirmed and do not wish to receive or are a non-communicant member of another church, you are still most welcome to come to the altar rail for a blessing.
- Help is always at hand at the steps up to the communion rail, but the elements can also be brought to you in your pew, just mention it on arrival.
