Report From The Church Committee For The Year 2006

2006 was a very interesting, exciting and challenging year at St. Andrew Parish Church. The 21st Rector the Rev. Major Sirrano Kitson who took up duties in January 2006 was installed on February 5, 2006 at a very beautiful service rich with pageantry.

At his first Annual Congregational Meeting held on January 29, 2006 the activities of the past year were presented by the use of the electronic media followed by a very lively and informative discussion.

During the year a number of innovations were introduced - Advent devotions, lighting of the Advent candles during Advent, prayers of intercession from other sources and a number of hymns taken from other hymnals. Programmes for special occasions and Feast Days - Easter Day, Harvest Festival, Patronal Festival , Carol Service and Christmas Day.

Congregational Life

The Vision Statement of St. Andrew Parish Church states that it is:

"A church reconciled to God, aware of its identity and healing the community through the proclamation of the
Good News of the Gospel of Christ.
"

The Mission Statement

The mission of the St. Andrew Parish Church is to proclaim the good news and inspire the parish family to unity with God and one another

  • By ensuring that the church establishes programs to maintain, engage and expand membership

  • By identifying and mobilizing the human and financial resources available to the church.

  • By responding to human needs as we work for the transformation of unjust structures and the preservation of the integrity of the created order.

  • By presenting the Biblical tithe as the standard of Christian giving and the shaping of programmes of ministry that express the stewardship of God's creation.

  • By immersing our members in and expanding the knowledge of Christian identity in the context of our cultural experience and the obligations they impose.

The Highlights of activities carried out during 2006 include:

ALPHA 2006 Report

Alpha is a short, practical introduction to the Christian faith, developed at Holy Trinity Brompton (HTB), an Anglican Church in London, England and now used worldwide by many denominations as an Evangelical tool.

The Celebration Dinner was particularly fulfilling with 2 of the participants giving heartwarming testimonies of what Alpha had meant to them. The Church paid for the security, while meals etc. were covered by contributions from those participating. Each evening began with a light meal, followed by lively worship, a videoed talk by Rev. Nicky Gumbell of HTB then discussion and Bible study in small groups. Two Training Sessions for facilitators were held and a one (1) day Holy Spirit Retreat was held at the United Theological College on Saturday, June 3.

Altar Guild Report - 2006

The St. Andrew Parish Church Altar Guild, with the responsibility of preparing the church for Sunday worship, continues to play an important role in the following areas:

  • Maintenance of altar and church linen,
  • Provision and preparation of floral décor,
  • Cleaning the church - including brassware, wall fixtures and religious artifacts e.g. Processional Cross.

The following are ongoing projects in which the Guild participates:

  • Attempts are being made to establish flowerbeds on the side to Hagley Park road.
  • Plans are also underway to replace stolen pots and plants.

Altar Linens

A Laundering Roster is now in place, along with a Log Book for recording the movement of the linen A training programme, has been established which allows members to have greater involvement in and knowledge of the preparation of linen and dressing of the Church.

Workdays

This area of our ministry, continues to cause concern, we need support from our Church members on designated clean up days, as our building is plagued with dust and grime from the atmosphere due to the incessant traffic in the area.

Fund Raising

There was no major fund raising event this year, however, one member initiated a book bag project, which was very successful. Flowers for decorating the church on Sundays are provided by contributions from the members of the Altar Guild.

Visitation/Shut-ins

Groups are assigned to visit two to three shut-ins on a monthly basis, and report their findings to the Church Office and report to the Guild's quarterly meetings. There is need for improvement in this area as groups have not been visiting as frequently as desired.

Fellowship Groups 2006

Date of establishment: March 6, 1983.
Management: Coordinators work with representatives of groups for planning joint activities.

The Fellowship Groups of St. Andrew Parish Church continue to meet regularly. There are now fifteen groups. Most meet every week, others every other week and others once a month The purpose of the groups is to study the Bible together, to pray together and to share with each other. Meetings are held in a relaxed atmosphere, members enjoy each others company, share joys, sorrows and matters of concern. It has been observed that we have a strong support group. As we study together, we find that we help each other to grow in our Christian faith, and we have companions on our Christian journey. Corporate Communion was held as customary on the first Sunday in Lent and our annual one day retreat was held on March 18, 2006. The theme was "GOOD NEWS FOR A BAD NEWS WORLD ". The first session "Bad News" was led by the Rt. Rev. Dr. Robert Thompson , Bishop of Kingston. The second session "Good News" was led by Rev. Ralph (Jim) Parkes, and the third session "Who am I and why am I here" was led by Rev. Jean Forbes. All sessions gave us much food for thought, and there was a general feeling that we had all gained much from the day. The Fellowship Groups have continued to take the Sunday Evening Service once per month usually on third Sundays but this has been changed to second Sundays.

We had our Joint Fellowship Group Service on the second Sunday in November. All our groups participated in this service which was well attended. Our Fellowship Group Social was on Saturday November 25, at the home of our Rector and Mrs Kitson. We thank them for their welcome to their home. A good time was had by all in spite of the weather.

The St. Andrew Parish Church Servers' Guild

Mission Statement:
The Servers' Guild functions to serve God by:

  • Aiding to maintain efficiency and the smooth running of church services.
  • Assisting clergy at regular Eucharist services and at special services such as funerals, weddings and ordinations.
  • Working alongside other church groups to enhance our congregation's worship experience by allowing them to "offer to God a service of praise and glory along with appropriate beauty and pageantry".
  • Being leaders among the youth of our church, joining in other youth related activities and inviting others to join the Guild, thereby promoting understanding, use of, and pride in our Anglican heritage.

Cost of Operation & Source of Funding: No real operation costs. Material and sewing of vestments acquired through donation by Mrs. Marie Isaacs and the Women's Working Committee. In the new church year, the guild will resume collection of monthly dues to cover incidental costs.

Management: The guild is led by the chief server, Minke Newman, appointed by the Rector in 2002. The chief server is guided by the Rector and Curate. Her responsibilities include organizing and coordinating the guild activities, creating the monthly duty roster, the training of new members, and acting as the guild representative to the Youth Committee. In 2006 a new guild executive was formed. Executive members include the deputy head server- Daryan Pallas (appointed by the chief server in 2005), the guild treasurer - Phylicia Williams, and the guild secretary - Kurt Strudwick. The executive aims to meet regularly to plan the activities of the group.

Membership: The Servers Guild currently has 11 training servers. The number of active senior servers declined over the course of the year. Two valuable members retired from the guild - Twanya Smith and Marsha Woolcock. Twanya Smith is a former chief server and had served as an acolyte for nearly 15 years.

Challenges in 2006: The major challenges for 2006 were:

  • Decline in membership of active senior servers
  • Lack of adherence (by members) to the duty roster. Poor attendance and punctuality continue to be problems for this group. There is now a record of attendance at each service and the new executive is devising strategies to deal with this issue in the new church year.
  • Lack of funds. There was little to no collection of dues from members in 2006. The newly formed executive will resume this collection in the new church year. The guild also hopes to open a bank account for the management of these funds.

Achievements in 2006:

  • In 2006 the Servers Guild successfully met its goal to increase guild membership. The training of 11 new servers which began in May will double the current membership.
  • The formation of the new Servers Guild executive.

Activities in 2006: Activities which the servers took part in aside from their regular participation in Sunday worship, and in training, rehearsals and Bible study at their Saturday guild meetings, included participation in:

  • The annual Christmas treat (in December 2005) for the Little Brothers of St. Andrew through donation of cash and gifts.
  • The installation service for the new rector in February.
  • The annual youth retreat held at the Church Hall in March.
  • The Sunday School Festival held at St. Andrew Parish Church in May.
  • The "Atlanta Adventure" in July.
  • Servers Guild Social in October.
  • Diocesan Youth Rally at St. Cyprian, Highgate St. Mary in November.
  • Harvest Festival service at St. Thomas Mission, Majesty Gardens in November.

Goals for 2007: Important goals for 2007 include:

  • To increase guild membership
  • To improve general attendance and punctuality for church services and guild meetings
  • To improve the bimonthly servers meetings and bible studies, and to incorporate more social and spiritual group activities
  • To increase guild participation in the church's youth related activities
  • To resume the collection of dues from guild members
  • To create a Servers Guild bank account for the management of guild funds

Annual Report Of The St. Andrew Parish Church Sunday School And Nursery For 2006

Mission
The Sunday School is committed to the mission of the Church to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This commitment will be fostered using available communication media to engage, encourage and challenge each individual to develop a personal, loving relationship with God the Father through Jesus Christ the Saviour so that, filled with the Holy Spirit they may be enabled to live out their faith in community.

Introduction
Sunday School is operated during the 7.30am Service, except on 4th Sundays when students are encouraged to attend the 9:45am Family Eucharist and 5th Sundays (when they occur) when families are encouraged to remain in the 7:30am service and then all attend the 9:45am Total Sunday School. As of October the concept of Total Sunday School is being re examined and therefore there will be regular 7.30am Sunday School on 5th Sundays. There is a Nursery for children under 3 years old. Attendance was fairly consistent with a high of 109 consisting of 49 boys and 60 girls. At present there are 36 members of staff, including 4 trainees.

On the second Saturday in July, we had a very enjoyable biennial Outing, visiting St. Christopher's Church, Cavaliers and then picnicking at Salisbury Manor, the property of Mrs. Sonia Nelson.

In October we placed 1st in categories 1 and 2 of the Deanery Bible Reading Competition and 2nd in Category 3. For Christmas our play, "Too-oo-oo Busy" formed the sermon for the 9:45am Family Eucharist on December 24, 2006.

Staff Activities
We started the year with a delightful Staff Christmas Social at the home of Mrs. Carole Willis .Staff skills continue to be upgraded with Retreats, Work Shops and Seminars. The workshop in February was conducted by Mrs. Lorna Fraser who dealt with Lesson Preparation. The Department of Education and Youth of the Diocese held a Deanery workshop in February at St. Jude's and a Diocesan Sunday School Conference at Church Teachers' College in Mandeville in May. We had representatives at both events. Rev. Fr. Robert McLean led our Retreat in September starting with the Eucharist and addressing the topic, "The Practice of Spirituality"

Staff Movements
Mrs. Sasha Lumsden-Wright, Nursery member in charge of 2nd Sundays removed from the corporate area and can no longer serve in this capacity. Four of our senior students, Shadaa Muir, Moyen Campbell, Dwayne Grant and Kerry-Ann Knight are in training as teachers and stewards.

Status of Projections for 2006
In October we started Library Day on 1st Sundays for each class in order to stimulate interest in the Library and reading. The 1st day with Primary B went very well. Student involvement in leading the Worship on 3rd Sundays continues. More of our students are continuing to get involved in the wider Church activities through the Youth Choir, the Servers Guild and the Youth Fellowship.

Physical Structure and Equipment
We were given gifts of fans, 2 for the Hall downstairs and one for the Nursery. The Sunday School is in dire need of painting and repairs (especially to the downstairs ceiling). We also need new tables for the Seniors and new chairs for the Nursery.

We thank the "Friends of the Sunday Schools' for the many ways in which they have assisted us.

Young Adults - Annual Report 2006

OUR MISSION
To proclaim the Good News and inspire each other to unity with God and each other by: -

  • Supporting and encouraging each other in our walk with God
  • Strengthening the relationship with God and each other
  • Creating a resource pool of individuals to support the work of the Church
  • Fostering in members an enthusiasm to share the Gospel and serve the community.
  • Carrying forward and support the work of the church in outreach programmes
  • Creating an environment where we can engage freely in the exploration of our faith in a productive atmosphere.
  • Where possible, ministering to the whole need of people; physical, spiritual, social, emotional, professional.

The St. Andrew Parish Church Young Adults group approached 2006 with renewed hope for the spiritual renewal of its members. Consistent participation remained one of the main challenges faced in this year; however, some successes were achieved and we were able to fulfill elements of our mission. The challenge remains to extend our reach to more of the young adult population within the church. The group will need to focus more on outreach in 2007 as in the 2006 period the focus was on building relationships among group members, increasing our knowledge of our faith and improving our communication processes. There was an increase in the number of group activities and regular group meeting were being held. Activities of the group for the year included the following:

  • members of the group assisted with:

    • the Sunday School Rally held at St. Andrew Parish Church.

    • Youth Retreat, held at the church hall

  • Members of the group participated in:

    • Diocesan Young Adult Retreat

    • Christian Teaching Conference and retreats throughout the year.

  • Fellowship activities such as monthly 'First Friday Lymes' were introduced.

  • Two Socials were held in 2006

  • Bible study

  • Monthly General Meetings (last Wednesday each month)

  • Posters, invitation cards and notices in the Church Bulletins were used to increase the visibility of the group within the church community and invite new members.

  • E-mail listing created to improve communication and our contact listing updated

  • Framed citation presented to Fr. Jennings at the end of his ministry at St. Andrew Parish Church.

  • The group was able to extend its support to our member Yasmin Gibson whose father died earlier this year by visiting the family and attending the funeral service.

Revised Structure
In September the group was restructured. This facilitates more flexible meeting times for smaller groups and the increased involvement of members in decision-making and event-planning. The members were distributed among the following groups:

  • Faith-Formation - which planned and hosted the October event - a forum on 'Prayer for the Young Adult' led by Dr. Lucien Jones. The text from the forum was later provided by Dr. Jones and e-mailed to all members on the mailing list.
  • Personal Development & Sports -- a forum on Young Adult health issues.
  • Mission Activity - to encourage a sense of mission among members & the church in general
  • Fellowship & Fundraising - to promote closeness among members of the group and plan & execute fund-raising activities.

A 4-member Central Coordinating Body led by Terry-Anne Wilson oversees the general activities of the group. Members are Katherine Williamson, Edison Galbraith & Nicola Carney.

PLANS FOR 2007

  • The focus of the Young Adult group of 2007 will continue to be on developing the individual Christian confidence of group members and strengthening the relationships among them, so the group becomes a strong support system
  • for its members and the church community.

Meeting Times
Weekly Bible study/spiritual development exercise (Thursdays at 7pm)
Monthly seminars on various topics.

The matter in regard to transferring of the lands being used for the car park, from the Ministry of Lands and Environment (formerly Ministry of Works) to the Church was resolved. Work commenced on repairs to the Church Office Building . This was commissioned by the Facey family. A new lease arrangement was successfully negotiated with NCB for the premises at #4 Hope Road. Discussions with the Jamaica Library Service in regard to use of the Annex as a resource center progressed . Several meetings and discussions were held to review the proposals. A report is to be sent to the church committee for their review and comments before submitting the proposal to JSIF for grant funding.

Church Grounds and Environs Committee

Major clean-up of the entire cemetery took place and efforts are being made to maintain the area in an acceptable state. A major challenge is to source funds to undertake repairs to the road ways and path ways, identification of .graves and maintaining up-to-date records.

  • Anglican Youth Fellowship (AYF)
  • Sunday School
  • Youth Choir
  • Servers Guild

The committee also worked directly with the Education and Youth Department in informing and finding support for the groups to take part in Diocesan events. Although a budget was sent to the finance committee, most activities were primarily funded by parents, support groups and contributions from organizations within the church family.

Achievements for the 2006:

  • Helped in organizing/planning the confirmation Youth Retreat in February
  • Youth session - The Authenticity of the Bible (AYF) - Dr. David Kuck in April
