This page was created to seek and gather church members views about the role of St Andrew's Church in their lives and in the community. It is very difficult to express our friendship and fellowship with one another during this time of distancing. Nevertheless, we felt we wanted to mark the special occasion and demonstrate our 'togetherness', even if it couldn't be a party! Accordingly, a mini online questionnaire was put on this page to help the St Andrew with St Alban PCC in its task of taking St Andrew's forward. Questionnaires were also sent to all members on the St Andrew's electoral roll. All replies will be treated anonymously, The three questions asked were:

  • What aspects of St Andrew's Church do you appreciate, enjoy, value?
  • Have you any questions about how St Andrew's could, or should, minister to you and to the wider community?
  • Is there any particular concern you would like us to pray for?

Your responses (65% of the electoral roll) and thoughts have been summarised by our PCC Secretary to support future meetings. Your wishes, thoughts and prayers were blessed as part of the dedicated offering which we made on St Andrew's Day. We want you to feel that St Andrew's is your church and is a caring and loving community which attends to your concerns and needs.
Appreciation shown for the church in the response to the first question is summarised in the 'word cloud' image below (there is a larger version in the St Andrew's Day 2020 photo gallery towards the bottom of the page).

Responses to the two other questions will be summarised and considered at future PCC meetings.Thank you for your participation and your continuing support. If you were unable to comment or wish to add further comments please email PCC Secretary, Imogen Roose
