Statement of safeguarding principles at St Andrewís Church

Every person has a value and dignity, which comes directly from the creation of humans in Godís own image and likeness. Christians see this potential as fulfilled by Godís re-creation of us in Christ. Among other things this implies a duty to value all people as bearing the image of God and therefore to protect them from harm.  Please click HERE to read the full Statement of Safeguarding principles.

We believe that to be a Christian, and to attend church, should be both a good and happy experience.
At St Andrew's we can assure you that should you decide to come and visit us - 
and we hope you will - you will receive the warmest of welcomes.

Jesus said:

"I have come that you may have life,

and have it to the full.

(John 10:10)"

WELCOME & INDUCTION OF REVD GARY GOTHAM

as Minister of St Andrew's Church, Devizes;  Marston;  & Trinity Church, Market Lavington

Sunday 10 November 2013

St Andrew's is a Methodist and a United Reformed Church, and we have been united for about 30 years.  As such we are part of the Methodist Church of Great Britain and also the United Reformed Church (URC) in England & Wales.  This widens our horizons and gives us opportunities to learn from, and benefit from, both parent Churches.  Locally, we have been pleased to share our resources as we have grown together as the people of St Andrews.

We are united for a purpose, which is is that we might share through worship and service, the love that God has for all people - a love that is revealed uniquely and completely through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.

Because we cannot exist on our own, St Andrew's Church belongs to the 'Wiltshire United Area', which embraces all the Methodist and URC Churches in quite a large area.  Some of these churches are United, others are one or other denomination but we all work together.  The area includes Corsham, Melksham, Calne, Devizes, Trowbridge, Bradford-on-Avon, Warminster and Westbury as well as the villages around these towns.

    www.wiltsunitedchurches.org.uk

The Area is overseen by the Executive Committee, which is made up of both Ministers and Lay people.  Revd Gary Gotham (Devizes) is the Area Chairman and Mrs Beryl Hill is the Area Co-ordinator.
