Below a few pictures from our Parish Feast today. It was great to worship together as one St Andrew’s family and to share wonderful food and drink. It is obvious that we are a very mixed bunch of people with different cultural, language and ethnic backgrounds and some differences in religious formation. Nevertheless our style of worship makes coming together relatively easy as it does not depend so much on language.

It will require some generosity and experiment to figure out how to worship best together – and today was a good start. It was lovely to welcome Fr Lusa to St Andrew’s before he starts his episcopal ministry in the Diocese of London.
