Forthcoming Events:

NATIVITY LIVE @ PADDOCK WOOD LIGHTS UP 2019

We are joining with our friends at Paddock Wood Baptist Church to host a Nativity Live experience.  It will be your chance to come and experience that first  day in Bethlehem, as people gathered to meet and greet Jesus and his parents.  What are the questions you have always wanted to ask the shepherds?  Maybe you’ve always wanted to find out what myrrh and frankincense are all about.  This is your opportunity to do so.

Come and find us down Commercial Road,on Sunday 24th November from 2.00-6.00pm.  JUST FOLLOW THE STAR!

Here are some of the events we have been part of this year:

Paddock Wood Carnival

This is a gathering of many different associations and the public on the 2nd Saturday in July for an opportunity to celebrate our community on St Andrew’s Field.

 

Remembrance Sunday

In association with the The Royal British Legion, The Royal Naval Association, The Town Council, St Andrew’s hosts a service at 9.30am before a parade moves down to the War Memorial, on Commercial Rd, before the town pays its respects with a two minute silence.

Christmas Lunch

 

 

 

For the last three years St Andrew’s has hosted a Christmas lunch on Christmas Day for those who find themselves on their own. Supported by many of the shops and individuals we are able to offer a full Christmas Dinner, drinks, presents and entertainment for those who would otherwise find the day something of a challenge.
