Vanuatu Cyclone

Cyclone Pam has left thousands of people homeless on Vanuatu in the Pacific. The strength of the winds are being compared to those of Typhoon Haiyan which devastated parts of the Philippines in November 2013.

Vanuatu has a population of 267,000 and is spread over 65 islands, many of them are unreachable. A family connected with St. Andrews’ originates from Vanuatu and the Father who is a Doctor went there a week ago to help the injured.

Please pray for the people of Vanuatu, those who have family there and those who are doing all they can to help.

If you are able, donations to help provide shelter, food and to begin rebuilding lives can be made through ‘All We Can’ here

Find out more about the situation in Vanuatu here.

Lent Prayer and Action March 29th

Week 6 – 29th March: Hunger

In the world 805 million people do not have enough to eat.  In the UK last year 900,000 people went to a food bank to receive 3 days’ worth of emergency food.  The fixed costs of maintaining a home and keeping children in school means households must cut back on food.  Hunger is a symptom of insecure livelihoods, poor housing, social exclusion and an unequal society.

This week you are invited to take part in the fasts or sponsor someone else.


God of Hope, Creation, Truth, Power and Love
Help us to remember that you can do impossible things
Inspire us to work with you for change in our society
Your Kingdom come
Your will be done                 Amen

Lent Prayer and Action 22nd March

Week 5 – 22nd  March A Moral Economy

The UK has the highest gap between rich and poor of all the developed economies (only the USA is worse).  Globally there has been progress in the eradication of absolute poverty but inequality is growing. Pray that all will be paid a Living Wage and all will pay their fair share of taxes.


God of Truth

Draw us into your Gospel of Hope

Help us to speak out for justice

Your Kingdom Come

Your will be doneAmen

Lent Prayer and Action 15th March

Week 4 – 15th March: Climate

Climate change is both a cause of suffering and a threat to God’s creation.  We all need to think about the impact of our own choices as well as to call on the Government for action.  We all know what we can do and we are all too ready with the excuses as to why we don’t.


God of Creation

We live in a world you have created

Give us courage to make the changes needed to keep it beautiful

Your Kingdom come

Your Will be doneAmen
