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.
"Now when Jesus heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew to Galilee. From that time, Jesus began to proclaim ".
This is what Jesus had been preparing for, been prepared for even. Now was the time. The signal was the news of John's arrest. Time to get going, to start a new phase of his life. John had proclaimed "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near". Jesus took that on ... and more, curing people of their diseases. The first thing he did was get a team together, Simon, Andrew, James and John. We are part of his team today, what part are you being called to play?
Our Rector, the Revd Canon Robert Jenkins, is about to enter a new phase of life, a new phase in his ministry and Christian journey. Robert retires from the post at the end of this month. His last service at St Andrew's is at 10 a.m. on Sunday 29th January, but that won't be the end of his Christian ministry - you never retire from being a Christian in service, even if it is "just" the vital ministry of prayer. It sometimes seems our world does not value retired people as much ... but God does.
The special "farewell issue" of Together, featuring tributes to Robert, is out now. Pick up a copy in church or download from the Info (menu) - Together Magazine page here.
Robert was the visionary and driver for us putting this new website, and the administration system behind it, in place. Just one of the many legacies that he leaves with us. Thank you, Robert!
