Fund-raising gets under way
We were delighted to welcome a good number of people from across Dean Court and beyond to our first major fund-raising activity, our Community Fun Day on
5 October 2019, when we invited the community to help us raise money for the new church.
We enjoyed barbecue food, teas with a lovely selection of cakes, and fruit dipped into a chocolate fountain. There were activities for children, including football on the church games area. The Rocky Mountain Express went round the track collecting money for the church re-building. The amount raised so far from the day is a wonderful £1,000!
The following weekend twins Margaret and Rosemary gave a concert on the Paraguayan harp, supported by the Cumnor Community Choir. They raised £500 for the Rebuilding Project. Well done!
We are grateful to everyone who supported these events in many ways.
We had planned a Raise the Roof concert in April 2020, but it had to be postponed.

Lots of jam and honey!

We very much regret that we have currently suspended all church services and other church activities because of the risks from the coronavirus. But we hope to reopen in March.
Thanks and well done to
We are very grateful to JOY Place for raising just over £640 (between April 2019 and February 2020) for our rebuilding. In the afternoon of the first Sunday of the month St Andrew's is full for JOY Place's special service for adults with learning disabilities. It's great to see their joy and enthusiasm! We're thankful for that too.
