The theme of this year’s Lent School of Faith is Life. A number of sessions will be offered and based around the themes found in the following Lent books, which are available for purchase from the Church Office and after services on Sunday. Lent Books The Cross-Centred Life by C J Mahaney (£6). We often talk about ‘living our lives in light of the death of Christ’ or ‘bringing our burdens to the foot of the cross’. Nothing could be more important than doing that. This book is helpful because, in clear and practical ways, it shows us what this looks and feels like in daily life. A Praying Life by Paul Miller (£8). We have recommended this book on a few occasions and those that have already read it would say that it did what it aims to do – encouraged them in their praying. We are not meant to live independent lives; we are to lean on our heavenly Father. Do you need your eyes lifted back up to Him? This book will help you. Christ our Life by Michael Reeves (£8). Why am I a Christian? This book reminds us why – because of Jesus – and will simply fill your vision with Him. May you find much encouragement in it.

Have you read the whole Bible through before? Only reading 3 chapters a day can get you through in a year! Why not make 2015 the year that you read it through again or for the very first time? We will meet on Monday evenings at 7:30pm, beginning on the 2nd of February, at the back of church to chat and discuss what we have learned. It is going to be fantastic and we would love to see you there. If you would like to know more, please call the church reception at 661414.
St Andrew's is a place of living faith in the heart of Plymouth, with a concern to live for, worship and proclaim Jesus Christ in the life of the city and beyond.
We aim to be a church family and to provide somewhere all can belong and be known: the elderly, the not so elderly, families, singles, students, teenagers and children.
There are no service details available at this time.
