A thought for the days ahead...

 

The Feast of the Epiphany brought the Christmas period to an end. To mark this, here is a Litany called "The Work of Christmas" composed by Howard Thurman, an African-American theologian, educator, and civil rights leader.

 

When the song of the angels is stilled,

when the star in the sky is gone,

when the kings and princes are home,

when the shepherds are back with their flocks,

the work of Christmas begins:

to find the lost,

to heal the broken,

to feed the hungry,

to release the prisoner,

to rebuild the nations,

to bring peace among the people,

to make music in the heart.

 

 

                           

 

 

 The Church is open daily. The formidable front door will yield as you turn the handle, and lights will come on as you enter, to welcome you.

There is level access for services, via the backdoor, through the gate at the left side of the Church.

 

 

St Andrew's is part of the Diocese of Edinburgh within the Scottish Episcopal Church, which is itself part of the world-wide Anglican Communion 

We are committed to exploring ways in which we can serve God both within our church families and in and around our local communities. We also play a full part in our town's ecumenical 'Churches Together' groups, sharing occasional services and pieces of outreach work with the local Church of Scotland congregations, the Quakers and the Roman Catholics.
