PATTERN OF WORSHIP
St Andrew's serves the whole community and embraces within its congregation worshipers of many traditions, and denominations. The current practice is probably best described as Central Churchmanship using Common Worship. Vestments are usually worn. We hold a service each Sunday morning at 11am. This is either Holy Communion or For All the Church Family (a service of morning praise).
Working with our sister churches in the Benefice we provide services for all the major festivals within the Church Calendar, eg Easter, Christmas, Remembrance etc. Benefice Services are held where there is a fifth Sunday of the month. Normally this will be a Holy Communion service in the morning and a Songs of Praise in the afternoon/Evening.
Benefice Morning Prayer is held at All Saints Church Ruskington at 8.45am Mon-Fri. When our Priest is present we hold a service of Holy Communion on Wednesday.
A Benefice midweek Holy Communion (Wednesday) is held once a month at one of the Benefice churches at 6.30pm. We hold these services to offer worship for those who work through the week and on Sundays. All are welcome. Please see the Calendar for further details
There remain close links with the Salvation Army. On special occasions the Salvation Army have provided a band to support church events on the Village Green.
The Benefice Ministry Team comprises our parish priest, a retired priest with permission to officiate, a retired Deacon, 2 lay Readers and 2 Authorised Lay Ministers. Should you wish to speak to one of them please see the Who's Who section.
