Some additional words of Wisdom......

POPE FRANCIS’ WORDS

Do you want to FAST this Lent?

FAST from hurting words, and say kind words

FAST from sadness, and be filled with gratitude

FAST from anger, and be filled with patience

FAST from pessimism, and be filled with hope

FAST from worries, and trust in God

FAST from complaints, and contemplate simplicity

FAST from pressures, and be prayerful

FAST from bitterness, and fill your heart with joy

FAST from selfishness, and be compassionate to others

FAST from grudges, and be reconciled

FAST from words, and be silent so you can listen

 

A list of all services occurring during Lent are on our 'Services This Week' page which can be accessed from the left hand column.

 

Have you considered a 'Jar of Grace'?

 

 

USPG have a Lent Appeal

http://www.uspg.org.uk/lent/lentappeal

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.
