Dear Friends and Neighbours
Good news! St Andrew’s Church, Oddington is about to re-open for private prayer.
The tower is now safe and the building cleaned, thank you to all of those who made this possible.
Every Sunday commencing on the 29th November the church will be open for you to go in and pray from 11.30 – 12.30. You will need to wear a face mask and we kindly ask that you use hand gel on the way in and the way out. If you leave a post-it note, (provided) on the space you occupied that would be extremely helpful.
Enjoy the surroundings and the peace and have a look at what a wonderful repair the builders have carried out. May God look after you and your family at this difficult time! Rev Lisa
*Public Services will resume when permitted
A prayer for this difficult time
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support
the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can
separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The repairs are complete as the Tower stands in the November Sun.
