Summer Appeal for Swindon Women’s Refuge

Please bring your stationery donations to church by 11th August.

Are you well-prepared?

Though it may not be our favourite topic for discussion, it makes sense to give our own death some thought, to make sure we are properly prepared. During August and September Sally will be running a 4-week course to discuss the practicalities of dying (e.g. wills and funerals); the process of dying (palliative and spiritual care) and what happens after death. If you are interested in taking part please contact Sally

National Prayer Weekend (NPW)   

27-29th September 2019

What is National Prayer Weekend? CWR believes that prayer is powerful, and we want to respond to God’s call to love our neighbours and the people around us. The concept is simple – ask people in your local area in schools, businesses, MPs, neighbours, etc, whether they would like prayer. Gather the prayer requests together and pray for them. You can pray as an individual, in small groups, or the whole church. We can host a prayer event such as a morning of prayer or 24/7 prayer room, prayer walks, gazebo of prayer in the local community, or any other ideas that are creative and can introduce people to Jesus.

After the weekend there are follow-up cards to let people know we have prayed and it is time to gather any stories to share as a result of the prayer.

We want to involve everyone in this event as everyone can pray. Please would you pray even as we organise this event for wisdom and favour in our community.

 If you would like to be part of a team to organise the event, please contact Deborah Donohoe on 07960 255 831 asap and we will gather to discuss ideas and pray.


Please pick up the new prayer cycle and particularly pray for wisdom to know how to grow Church at Tadpole Garden Village. Please join us to pray around TGV on Monday 12th August from 10am-12 noon. Please also pray for the PCC as it discusses St Andrew’s potential logo.
