Wednesdays

Attend online only via Zoom. (To join by phone, ring 3185 3730 and enter meeting ID#206-765-193.)

Said Eucharist with Prayers for Healing – 9:30 am – Starts again in February!

Attend in person. The Wednesday communion service has historically been known at St Andrew’s as the Healing Eucharist. Often while we recognise that Jesus’ ministry was one of teaching and healing, we are not always as comfortable in seeing healing as part of the ministry of the church today. Yet our faith is a living faith, empowered by the risen Christ who works amongst and within us, bringing healing and peace and reminding us that we are never alone. At any Wednesday Eucharist, the opportunity for particular prayer, including anointing and laying on of hands, is offered during or after the service. All are welcome – simply talk to Rev’d Sue before the service or ask for prayer at the communion rail or after the service.

Waypoint – 6:00 pm in the Hall (not 29 October)

For some time there has been interest in holding a more regular contemplative service. This has given rise to a small group of people beginning to explore a weekly non-Eucharistic service which features poetry, contemporary liturgy, music and silence. As reflection has continued, there has also been an awareness that this is more than just a service but a renewal of commitment to a contemplative way of being in the world; a way at home in Celtic spirituality and the Anglican commitment to daily prayer and a lived faith of peace and justice. In that context, the contemplative service is very much a ‘way point’ in the week of a life of faith where we gather to support one another along the way.

On the first Friday of the month the format will be a little different. Any time from 4:30 pm there will be people gathering in the hall to prepare a simple meal that will be shared at 6:00 pm and followed by talking circles around scripture and tradition. It is an ethic of the community that all voices contribute to our shared life of faith.
 
Another way to share in the life of the community is to join in the weekly prayers at home in your own time. The current prayers being used can be found here in the St Andrew’s Virtual Commons.
 
The last Friday for Waypoint will be Friday 3 December. We will then have a break during Advent, Christmas and January. This may provide the opportunity and time for activities like shared bushwalks, walking meditations or shared meals before we look to an official launch in February 2022 of Waypoint and shared practices and rhythms of faith in community.

Saturdays

Said Eucharist – 6:00 pm
