There has been a Christian presence in Kinson for some 1000 years and many believe that a Saxon church would have stood where the current building stands today.
Over the centuries, St Andrew's in Kinson has sought to contribute to the local community with prayer, gospel ministry and active service for those who are in need.
We continue with that same aim - 'to be a Church that is building community and living for God; reaching out to our neighbours, sharing God's transforming love in Kinson, Northbourne and beyond.’
As well as offering weekly gatherings for prayer and worship, St Andrew's is actively involved in operating the Kinson and West Howe Foodbank. We also provide a great space in our community centre, offering a place where local groups can meet and pursue their interests. To that end we seek to offer discounted rates for non-profit organisations seeking to provide support and encouragement to people from all ages and stages of life.
Naturally, all vision and mission, needs to be ‘resourced’. This includes our prayer, time, energy, use of our talents and our financial giving.
Those who call St Andrew's home are committed to giving financially to the work of the local church here:
...as an expression of thanks to God for all He has given us.
...as an act of obedience, submitting to the Bible's teaching.
...because we trust God to provide for all our needs.
...and to support the work of the church, locally and globally.
We are thankful that through the commitment of so many individuals, our shared mission is possible.
