We are a Church of England Chaplaincy in the Diocese in Europe, with a small friendly international congregation, worshipping in English at 11:00 on Sundays. Please explore this site to find out more about us.
New Year & all the best for a happy, healthy, prosporous 2018!
A new version of Sunday School is starting this coming Sunday, 14th January 2018, after Mass from 12.00 to 12.45(the start time is flexible depending on when the Mass finishes). The plan is to have it every Sunday after the service in the church (while the adults have coffee). They will start with a welcome, introduction and a hymn/song followed by having the children go into 3 respective groups:
6 years n below
7 years to 10 years
11 years and above
The Sunday school at Haga Forsamlingen will continue as planned by Jennette (currently there are no dates set for 2018).
All the best for a good weekend & see you in church!

Dear Family and Friends of St. Andrew´s,
One of the things I like about Christmas in Gothenburg is how before the 24th things become so quiet. Stores shut down and the streets have few people on them. Christmas is indeed a family holiday and the activity becomes concentrated in home as preparations are made. Very unlike where I come from where one is inundated with ads like Midnight Madness sales prompting to get that special gift at a drastically marked down price. Here the pre-Christmas hush brings on a sense of quiet expectation as we wait for him to be born in this world.
There are still things to be done I am sure but first I would like to thank all those who did so much to make the Service of Lessons and Carols so special Sunday night. The Church was full and I was greeted by many smiling faces as people left while I stood outside shaking hands.
Please invite your friends who may not have a place to go for church at this time and reach out to those in need or who are lonely. This time of year brings out so many emotions both Joyous and Sad. So reach out to others as God in Jesus comes to us and offers his hand to lead us on the way into the New Year.
With every Blessing,
David Bruce, Chaplain
