Worship with 1 Click
Enter into worship this Lord’s day with hope and thanksgiving. Worship forms us as a people who, with God’s help, magnify the capacity to be compassionate with ourselves and towards others, and seek justice for ourselves and for others. God welcomes all that we bring and all that we need and promises to be with us on this journey towards real peace.

Steadfast God, you greet us as a loving parent

knowing it is Christ whom we greet
as we welcome others.

*In the season after Pentecost (also known as Ordinary Time, or "Proper" Sundays, the first reading can follow one of two tracks—either a semi-continuous track that stays with a story over a number of Sundays or a paired track that companions more closely the gospel reading. This summer we are mostly using the paired readings.

If you haven’t already, set the elements—some bread, some juice or wine—in the room where you worship electronically in these days with our faith community. Bring them with joy, giving thanks for God’s provision.
If a joy or a concern has come to mind, please share it with the assembly here so you do not carry it alone. These will be shared by email to our St Andrew prayer list so that we pray for what you hold by name. This information is emailed to a curated group, not shared or posted online in a searchable form.
