Welcome to St Andrew's Church, Benton

  • The latest edition of our 'Tidings' magazine is available in PDF format here: Tidings - June 2020



    While we are unable to meet together face to face during  the restrictions caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, we hope that the following resources may be useful.

    Firstly, here's a short act of worship for Sunday 24th May, from our minister, Gavin:  

    The Bible Reading for this week is Acts 1:6-11, which you can read here: https://bible.oremus.org/?ql=457245328

    In response to the message, you will be invited to pause this video, and sing along with the hymn "Meekness and majesty', which you can find here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gtt52JEW_Zo


    There are also some worship at home sheets for this Sunday. This one is produced by the Methodist Church: Worship at Home

    And another produced by twelvebaskets: Vine at Home

    If you know people who do not have internet access who might appreciate these resources, perhaps you could print and deliver them?

    Also for those without internet access, BBC local radio stations will be broadcasting a service given by Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, at 8am each Sunday. On TV, BBC One are broadcasting Sunday worship at 11am.

    A number of churches are live streaming worship. Here’s a few in our area:

    1. Trinity Gosforth – the link for streaming worship on YouTube from Trinity is https://www.youtube.com/user/trinitygosforthtube.

    (For clarity - once you’ve opened Trinity’s page, if necessary click on the Trinity logo at the top of the page, scroll down to find the LIVE feed and click).


    1. Jesmond Methodist Church - live streaming at 10:45am on the JMC Facebook page: That link is https://www.facebook.com/JesmondMethodistChurch/


    And nationally, here’s a few more:

    Wesley’s Chapel in London (Wednesday 12.45, Thursday 12.45 and Sunday 9.45 and 11.00)


    Swan Bank Methodist Church in Burslem (Sunday 10.30am)
