St Andrew's is the parish church for everyone in Halstead.
Whether you come to worship here regularly, just once or twice a year, or even if you haven't yet been here - this is your church. We are here to mark the important stages of life with you, through baptisms, weddings and funerals; to help you find out more about the Christian faith, and grow as a Christian; to serve our community through showing God's love in practical ways; and to provide a focus for worshipping God together. We work closely with the other churches in Halstead, and with other Anglican churches in the villages nearby that make up the Halstead Area Team.
We are a friendly bunch, and we'd love to meet you!
Coming up in October:
Tuesday 8 October - A presentation on the amazing work of flying mission, Mission Aviation Fellowship. This will be in the church hall at 7.30pm. Come and hear stories of how MAF is making a difference to isolated communities all around the world, bring practical help and care to those in need.
Sunday 13 October - Harvest Festival, 10.30am, for all ages and stages of life, celebrating God's goodness to us in providing for our needs. We'll be collecting goods for the Foodbank, so do bring along your gifts of tinned and dry goods (sorry, no fresh produce) to add to the collection.
Sunday 20 October - In addition to our usual morning services, we'll be holding our annual Memorial Service at 6.30pm. This is a chance to come and remember those loved ones to whom we've had to say goodbye. You'll be able to light a candle in memory of your loved ones. Tea, coffee and cake will be served afterwards.
Saturday 26 October - From 3-5pm in the church hall, it's the annual Halstead Messy Church Light Party. As the days draw in to the darkness of winter, come and celebrate all things light and bright! Wear something sparkly or bright if you can (but not halloween costumes please).
