Holy Communion - Sundays 4.00 pm at St Andrew’s
If you would like to join in the Communion service, please contact the church office (before 1pm on Fridays) to book your place. A simple ‘said’ service lasting 30 minutes. We are being scrupulous about social distancing hence the booking arrangements. Please remember to bring your mask. For those who have been carefully setting aside their weekly offering until we return to church there is a collection plate available. Please note, there will not be a Communion service on 23 or 30 August.
Parish Prayer - Sunday 2 August
From now on there will be one Parish Prayer meeting by Zoom on the first Sunday of each month. We aim to pray for about 40 minutes. It’s the same link each time:

Old Smart Phones
Refugee Action York is supporting a large group of asylum seekers who have recently arrived in York. They would greatly benefit from access to a smartphone which enables them to contact family, to access translated information about Covid 19, and to access support such as English classes. Do you have an old phone you could give? Phones need to be in working order, unlocked, with no passwords, and ideally with factory settings restored. There are several drop-off points across the city - email email@example.com or text 07545 060694 for information about the nearest.
