Advent & Christmas Eve

Posted in Special Worship Updated

Advent 2017 at St. Andrew: Always believe that you can make a difference.

Jesus Christ came into the world to make a difference, we too can make a difference by simply following his example. During our Advent journey we will learn to look for opportunities through which we can make a difference in the lives of others. We wholeheartedly invite you to join us on this journey following Christ this December.
