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...
Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God.” —Ruth 1:16
This beautiful statement of loyalty makes its way into thousands of weddings each year. Incredibly, this wasn’t originally a pledge of a bride or groom. Instead, it was the pledge of Ruth to her mother-in-law — some would call her an ex-mother-in-law since Ruth’s husband, Naomi’s son, had died, but Ruth never treats Naomi as an “ex” of any kind. God loves loyalty and bestows his blessing and favor when we are loyal to others. In an era where people are thrown away as readily as paper plates and napkins, let’s remember that loyalty is a quality that God not only loves, but it is also a quality that he defines for us in Jesus. So let’s see loyalty to friends, to family, and to other followers of Jesus as a crucial commitment.

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.
