Four members of the congregation have been commissioned as nationally accredited Lay Preachers, having completed the 3 years’ training of TLS (Foundation and Gateways into Worship). The four were tutored throughout by the minister at St. Andrew’s, Rev. Dr. Tony Haws.Support group members from many other churches in West London joined the congregation at St. Andrew’s for the Accreditation service on the 7th July 2013. We’re not aware that any local church has previously seen so many members accredited as Lay Preachers at one time!
