WHAT'S SUNDAY LIKE?
Each week we sing together about and to God to remind one another of his amazing grace and love poured out through Jesus into our hearts by His Spirit. Sometimes a member of St Andrew's Church will share a story of God's love and grace. Then we hear God's word preached, followed by a time of remembering Jesus together. Every week we provide opportunities for those who would like to receive prayer.
Sundays are a time to gather together with people that live, work, and play all over Geraldine and beyond to celebrate the good news about Jesus. It is a time where we remember the truths that have changed our lives. We believe that our building is just a building, but when the people gather that is where you find the church!
WHO COMES ON SUNDAY?
St Andrew's is a friendly family of diverse believers in Jesus Christ, as well as many who are simply observing to discover who Jesus is. Sundays are for celebration, for hearing biblical, exegetical, and applicational teaching, and responding to what God has done in song, giving, and communion.
St Andrews has families with kids of all ages, working professionals, as well as more "seasoned" people around too. No matter who you are, we have a place for you. Come this Sunday and spend time with us to see why we live for Jesus in the everyday stuff of life.
Sundays help shape our everyday.
Through teaching, Bible reading, music, storytelling, and celebrating, we aim to keep the focus on Jesus. We strive for life-changing gatherings. Our music and preaching are never for the sake of a show, but for pointing everyone to the greatness and love of God. We want to clearly and consistently communicate the good news of Jesus to all who gather with us.
Sundays should make sense to almost everyone.
Our teaching comes from a mix of both exegetical and timely topical series from scripture. Any Sunday you visit will have solid biblical teaching that is gospel-centered and accessible. We offer an age-appropriate curriculum for children at St Andrew's because they are disciples too. We have great teachers and classrooms meant to disciple your kids, not just babysit them.
Sundays are essential but not sufficient.
Sunday is an opportunity for us to communicate the unchanging gospel in a fresh way. We keep it simple. We gather. We sing. We listen to God's word preached. We respond together in giving and communion. We do the same things Christians have done for centuries. Sundays are great for doing these things, but they aren't conducive to everything a Christian needs.
Getting to know people and be connected to our community can certainly start on a Sunday, but we like to provide opportunities for new people to join in a Home Group.
Home groups are smaller groups of people designed for building relationships, praying together, and studying God's word.
Here is a list of our Home Groups. Please feel free to contact our head office for Home Group contact details.
