Services are held in our beautifully restored church. There is considerable lay participation in this service such as service leaders and readers. We have replaced the old church pews with comfortable chairs, allowing for greater flexibility. We have a regular attendance of 40+ people. Some services are held in our renovated church hall. These services are a more relaxed service, multi-generational, particularly appealing to younger families as we are often seated around tables in a more Cafe Style. The service uses a lot of lay leadership, and utilises mainly recorded music. All of the services are projected onto a screen, to make it easier for everyone to be involved. We share in communion twice monthly and have an attendance of 20+ people. Each Sunday we have morning tea in between our services and this is a great time to get to know people. We would be delighted if you joined us at which ever service suited you best.

St Andrew’s Community Meal
Our St Andrew’s Community Meal has been serving a home cooked meal to up to 60 people each Monday night (during school terms) for over ten years. We start with Tea and Coffee from 5.30 pm in the Church Hall, with the meal at 6.00 pm, starting with a brief message and a prayer. We welcome all people to join us in the meal, especially those in financial hardship or who would benefit from a social time with others.
We have a small but busy missions group raising money for missions and they have run parish stalls and lunch and movie days for the wider community. The missions group keeps God’s wider work before the parish and helps us to distribute our missions giving effectively.
We have two weekly prayer meetings in the parish.
We hold several weekly bible studies at the church or in homes. Many run for seven week blocks looking at books of the bible or topics.
Soul Mates has been ministering to ladies living alone in Kyabram for 5 years with quarterly meeting enjoyed by all.
