Social Life at St. Andrew's Church

As well as the opportunity for fellowship each Sunday at worship and at the informal refreshments after the 9.30 am service, we have an active and varied calendar of events, sometimes these are for fund-raising and sometimes merely for pleasure!

We hold occasional Sunday lunches and Parish Teas which are extremely popular.

Other events include Quiz Nights, Poetry and Puddings evenings, tea in the Vicarage Garden, barn dances, promises Auctions – almost anything that includes food and the chance to meet, chat and have fun!

Seedlings: Seedlings is open to all Mothers/Carers/Grandparents of babies and toddlers in the Ferring and Goring areas only.

We meet every Friday during school term time in the Church Centre for two hours 9.15 – 11.15 a.m., where the children engage in playing and interacting with each other. A planned and varied craft activity is provided and there is always singing with actions including the use of musical instruments.

The cost of each session is £1.50 per adult which includes coffee/tea/squash and biscuits served by our wonderful kitchen team.
