Welcome to St Andrew’s Canberra
Change in Worship Service
Sunday 27 September was the last day that the 9.30 service were pre- recorded and streamed on Sunday morning from St Andrew’s for the foreseeable future. This service has been produced for the last 6 months. Initially, while the church was closed, the making of a service occurred on Saturday and was streamed on Sunday. Since the beginning of July, in addition to pre-recorded services we have had a face-to-face service at 9.30am.
Online services prior to that date will still be available online on our youtube channel St Andrews Canberra (click here for the link) and they will stay available for you to watch again.
The pre-recorded service’s production required hours of preparation, commitment and work by those who make it happen. Then most of the “production team” were required to turn around and make it happen on Sunday for the face-to-face service. The Ministry Team, the Organist and Choir were required to produce two services, which were similar, but not entirely the same. This required hours of preparation and planning. As well those who manage the electronic side of producing the recorded service taking the recordings home and spending 6 – 8 hours preparing the work for streaming.
We are very grateful and thank those who have responded to the call and have given their time and made the commitment to serve the congregation. Face-to-face services will continue as normal at 9.30am, pre-registration may be required if numbers exceed the restricted capacity of the church. This will be monitored each Sunday and announcements made accordingly. The Church@5 will continue to be face to face and live streamed. There are also face-to-face services at our Belconnen (10.00am) and Weston Creek churches (9.30am), and the midweek service on a Wednesday (12.45pm). The midweek service will move back to the Warriors Chapel from the beginning of October.
More information about what is going on each week in our church community can be found in our weekly bulletin. If you want to receive the bulletin and order of service by email each week then contact the Church Office.
