For recent online Sunday Worship,

please click the link below:


When the YouTube video is playing and you wish to access the 'chat facility' on a tablet or iPad, press the 'speech bubble' that appears above or below the video.  On a laptop or desktop, you should be able to find the chat to the right of the video.  Feel free to use it to let folks know you are watching - it all adds to the sense of togetherness.


As our churches continue to transition to having in-person worship, what I offer on YouTube will pivot away from formal services in order to compliment or contrast.     Gary





I have not produced YouTube videos for Sunday 30th May and Sunday 6 June 2021.


The internet is rich in alternatives but should you particularly wish to watch, read or listen to something from the Methodist or United Reformed Church traditions, then below are two links that will enable you to do so.

In this video I'll reflect on the significance of Pentecost - how it might assist you win in the struggle of fear vs action.

Revd Gary Gotham


Q. I wonder how many times you have prayed for your friends, just as Jesus prayed for his.

Q. Have you ever stopped to wonder if someone might be praying for you?

Q. This week, as a challenge, why not try and pray for your friends protection and even ask

     them to pray for you?

Bible reading - John 17 : 6-19


These don't have to be watched at the start time, you can view any time from then on.  They will remain accessible just as my previous videos still do.  My Youtube channel can be found at If you click the red 'Subscribe' button and then the small bell next to it, so it reads "All" you will be notified as soon as the worship video is ready to view.






If we meet in church, there are many changes in the way the services will be conducted, from their length, the seating arrangements, how we enter and leave the building to name a few. Welcome stewards direct you on arrival and lead you through the necessary steps to ensure we remain Covid secure.

Prayer Support Team

At St Andrews we believe in the power of prayer. Over the years we have seen the evidence of answered prayer, God has blessed us beyond our expectations, and it is so good to know that he is always ready to listen.

Members of the prayer support team are available every Sunday morning to share with you in prayers of concern, or thanksgiving.

You will recognise them by their badges, so please feel free to speak to one of them.  

It is their role to listen, to pray and to ensure absolute confidentiality.

And remember, ‘God is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.’

Eph 3:20
