Welcome to St Andrew's, Cobham. We are Cobham’s parish church and our aim is to know Jesus, and to make him known. We offer a host of activities for adults and children. Please explore our website to find out more. We hope to see you soon.
Yes, seriously. This Sunday was the start of a new year in the church calendar. A calendar designed to take us on a journey each year, growing our faith as we go.
So where do we start? You might think we start with the birth of baby Jesus, the commercial season of Christmas seems to have started already, but, no. Let's step back a bit.
What do your journeys start with? There is a lot to do before we set off. A lot of things to prepare so we are ready.
That's what we do for the next month, we call it "Advent", which means "coming". Christmas is coming, the baby is coming .. but more than that, we look to another coming. We don't know when. We are to watch and wait expectantly, to be ready whilst getting on with the day job of sharing God's love here and now.
Are you prepared? It's time to pause and reflect. Perhaps there is some baggage that is weighing you down that you need to offload? Perhaps you need to review the direction you are taking, your priorities for your life.
If that second coming is in your lifetime, will you be ready? Will He find you walking his journey, or your own?
