Spring is sprung, the grass has riz and it is time to transform St Andrews with our traditional spring clean. It will be good to see the church bright and clean for Easter and soon after, on 25 April, we expect a full house for the celebration of a new broom in the shape of Revd Frances Trickey. Do join us for an hour or so next Saturday morning, 1 April, as we go into dark corners that can be easily overlooked.
Bishop Andrew, who is with us this Sunday morning, has chosen the title of Transformation for this week’s Lent meditation. A spring clean of the soul that transforms the ‘attitudes, words and actions that are not worthy’ of our Christian calling. Soul searching has its place and we begin by praying Search me, O God, and know my heart! And see if there be any grievous way in me [Psalm 139, ESV]. We may well find a dark corner within that needs attention.
Bishop Andrew is preaching this Sunday at 9.30 and 11.15.
