ST ANDREWS' SUNDAY SCHOOL AT HOME

 
Our Sunday school is currently not meeting, but we will provide sheets and a take away bag (with craft and snack) to occupy children during the service, and we will also try to involve them a bit in the services.
There is, however, an area for small children in the chapter room (the room next to the church), but they need to be accompanied and we ask you to bring toys along with you. 

John 1.43-53

Click here to find out how to give to St Andrew's
We now have the facility for people who wish to make a gift in Rubles (RUB) via Sperbank. If you have an account with Sperbank there is no commission. If you use another bank there may be a small commission. Please use the QR code below.
The 'Daily Prayer' app from the Church of England, which offers morning and evening prayer, is quite long and wordy. Many people are finding that the app Time to Pray is more helpful. It has a shortened form of daily prayer, which can be read or listened to. Try it out by clicking here!
READ THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR
There are several helpful plans to help us read through the Bible in the YouVersion or Bible app. 

Download the app and go into plans.

Alison has found one of the plans which takes you through the Bible in a Year. You can listen to the passages being read and also to comments from Nicky Gumbel.

PRAYER THIS WEEK
- We give thanks to God for our Christmas and New Year services, for the opportunity to speak of Jesus, and to meet with him
- Last week we celebrated the 136th anniversary of the consecration of St Andrew's (on the 13th January). We thank God for this building, for those who built it, for all who have worshipped here, and for all for whom this building has been a gateway between heaven and earth. 
- Continue to pray for the restoration project. Our initial request for funding for work on the roof was not accepted, and we need to resubmit papers. Pray also for our need in 2021 to find about $150k for the next stages of the work. 
- Pray for MPC, for pastor Jessica in the US and for their work with refugees
- In this coming week we pray for Christian Unity. Pray for the service at the Catholic cathedral on Wednesday and for our different churches to show a common witness. 
- Pray for our guards. We give thanks for Voldoya, who has been sick, but who has been able to be back at work for the last few weeks. Continue to pray for him. Please continue to pray for Sergei who is critically ill.
