Have you considered a 'Jar of Grace'?



USPG have a Lent Appeal


to help free Dalit people in India from the oppression of Debt. If we each put a jam jar (Jar of Grace) in our kitchens and every time we eat a meal during lent, popped a coin in it (any coin will do) we may be amazed at the amount we could collectively raise to support them, bring your jars or the money to church after Easter and we will amalgamate the money and send it in.



Bob King, our Rector, continues his recuperation but is only taking selected services. We remain indebted to Rev Grace Redpath, Rev Ursula Shone and Rev Dr Ian Clark for their continued assistance during Bob's illness.

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.  At the same time, we seek to 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.
