Recently, St. Andrews celebrated its 34th anniversary. Holding a special morning service, led by Deacon Kina Saunders and her husband Rev. Paul Saunders a Superintendent Minister from Whickham. In a lively address, Paul challenged the church to build on its success and to spread the sense of belonging, community cohesion and love that the God brings. He used an analogy from his favourite film, Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, describing the Church's future as a journey that required teamwork and planning to overcome challenges. Following the service, lunch was enjoyed by everyone. Even doing the dishes was an event in itself!
