Church activities suspended to prevent spread of coronavirus
On March 12, Bishop Haynes has asked all churches in Southern Virginia to suspend all in-person activities until further notice in order to help prevent the spread of coronavirus in our communities. Visit our blog to read the Bishop's message and messages from our rector, Anne, about this decision. (all updates will also be posted on the blog) Worship Online with us: During this time there will be online worship and other offerings on our Facebook page. (You don't need a Facebook account to watch - when you click the link to our Facebook page, Facebook will ask if you want to create an account. Simply click "not now" and the page will open.)

Holy Week & Easter
Holy Week begins with Palm Sunday on April 5, and continues with Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and then Easter on April 12. Get details about how we will observe Holy Week and celebrate Easter here.

The Easter Project
Bishop Haynes has asked congregations in Southern Virginia to not gather for worship until at least after Easter due to the coronavirus. So what does this mean for us at St. Andrew’s? It means that the clergy and staff are hard at work creating ways for us to walk through Holy Week and celebrate Easter together online, in print, and in spirit. Good Friday will still include the Stations of the Cross. On Easter we will set up the flower cross in front of the church for parishioners and neighbors to decorate while keeping the required social distance. We are inviting everyone to participate in “The Easter Project”.

A message from Senior Warden & Stewardship Chair
"We hope and pray that this letter finds all of our St. Andrew’s family safe and healthy. We are certainly in challenging times right now, but – with God’s supreme love and guidance – we will get through this!" Click here to read their letter.

Virtual Easter Vigil from Camp Chanco
The Rev. Eileen Walsh will be officiating a special virtual Easter Vigil from the bluff at Chanco on April 11. The Easter Vigil is one of the oldest liturgies in the church. Historically it would last throughout the night and new converts to the faith would be baptized during the vigil. In the contemporary church the vigil begins with the new fire followed by entering the darkened church. The Pascal candle is lit from the new fire. Readings that tell the history of salvation are read and then all of the candles are lit, bells are rung, and the joyous celebration of the resurrection begins! Join the Rev. Eileen Walsh ONLINE for a special virtual Easter Vigil from the bluff at Chanco on Saturday, April 11 at 8 PM on Chanco’s Facebook page. (You do not have to have a Facebook account to watch.)
