Lent Appeal 2021 – Can you stand not sitting?

For many years, the Diocese of Salisbury and the Chalke Deanery in particular, have supported the people of Cuiebet (say “Shwaybet”) in South Sudan. One particular project, begun in 2013, was to start a school that has since grown to include over 900 pupils.
To help the pupils in their studies, the Chalke-Cuiebet Partnership Trust is now appealing for help to fund the provision of desks and benches to provide a better learning environment.

Services at St. Andrew’s

Owing to the latest Covid-19 lockdown, all services at St.Andrew’s Church have been suspended. For more details, including which churches in the Benefice have services that are being Zoomed, press here to refer to the Benefice website.

In normal times, different services are held each Sunday through the month at St.Andrew’s. There are also some special services on certain Sundays. Click here to see the full schedule.

The Chair Appeal

There is still an opportunity for chairs to be funded, and dedications on plaques added in memory of a loved one or happy event.

So far, 60 chairs have been sponsored, and we have a further 10 to go. Full details describing the chairs chosen and how you can order one, are given here, and a form to place an order here.
