We believe that God’s love is for everyone, no matter who we are or what we have done.
We are told by those who visit that we’re open, positive, supportive, and somewhere that many in Roundhay – members or not – call “my church”.
St Andrew’s activities and spiritual life attract over a thousand people each week. We are a strong and growing presence in the area, with a real passion for sharing God’s love with all people.
Come and visit. Whether it be for worship on a Sunday morning, Badminton on a Thursday, or Parents and Toddlers on a Friday, you are sure of a warm welcome at St Andrew’s, Roundhay.
Wishing you every blessing.
May all who make their way to St Andrew’s sense God’s presence and find peace and purpose for life.
Thought for the week...
The arrogance of man will be brought low and the pride of men humbled; the LORD alone will be exalted in that day, and the idols will totally disappear. —Isaiah 2:17-18
Sometimes when we get “too big for our britches,” we find ourselves humbled by a natural disaster, world war, incurable disease, economic depression, or widespread social disorder. Our arrogance can be a predictor of our own impending disasters. Is there a general principle of our universe at work here? (“Pride goes before a fall.”) Or is this the active discipline of God at work? I guess the answer is “Yes!” to both of these questions. Both God and his world remind us that there is so much about our lives we can’t control. This passage, however, goes beyond the general principles and it promises an ultimate day when human arrogance will be eliminated and all false gods disappear. On that day, God’s children will rejoice and be glad! Until then, let’s walk humbly with our God.
Prayers for healing are held in term time 7pm on Tuesdays. We also have at 9:15 am on Thursdays (Time with God) in the Narthex (main church entrance) everyone is welcome.
Requests for prayer may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org marking the email ‘prayer request’.
A prayer for God’s Presence:
May the love of God surround me
the peace of God infuse me
the grace of God travel with me
this day, and my life through.
