St Andrew's and St George's West

Our rich spiritual life offers many paths to God. It includes silence and study, prayer and pilgrimage, creative space to explore, and worship to uplift the spirits.

Communion at St Andrew’s and St George’s West

Sharing Communion is fundamental to our faith life. Jesus shared a simple meal with his followers just before his death. In blessing and sharing bread and wine with each other we affirm his presence with us over two thousand years later and renew our commitment to love and service.

Come and break bread and share wine with us at any of our Communion services.
We celebrate the Lord’s Supper:

  • twice a week – at 1pm every Tuesday and 9am every Sunday
  • on the last Sunday of every month after 11am Morning Worship
  • at Easter and on the last Sundays in January June and October.

everyone is welcome at our table
