Due to the success of last years Virtual Baby Project, the Kauri Centre has been granted funding for 10 Virtual Babies and are booked to go back into Hardenhuish School for 3 weeks in June 2014.  This next Virtual Baby Weekend Experience will be reaching 30 year 10 pupils and we are again looking for volunteers come along side these pupils and help with sending the virtual babies home and collection of them.  It is a very exciting programme to be involved in and the Weekend experience is gaining momentum and we will be talking to Sheldon School and Abbeyfield school who have both shown a keen interest about future projects.  You need no qualifications just to be able to give  1 or 2 hours for up to 3 fridays (13th, 21st, 27th) in June and or  30 mins on  the following Monday mornings to collect babies.  A DBS check will be necessary.

Welcome to the parish church of St. Andrew, Chippenham within the Anglican deanery of Chippenham and the diocese of Bristol, together with the nearby chapel-of-ease of St. Nicholas at Tytherton Lucas. St. Andrew’s is one of several Church of England churches in Chippenham and occupies a town centre location in the Market Place at the top of the High Street, where there has been a church since Anglo-Saxon times. Our vocation is to provide a place of stillness and silence where we can encounter the depth and reality of God today in the heart of the town. In this community we acknowledge our need for Him as we undertake our personal journey through life and meet others with needs and questions like our own.

We hope that you will enjoy your visit to our website and that you will gain an insight into our Christian life, past and present.
