Thoughts for the circumstances in which we find ourselves
‘O Lord, let the healing grace of your love so transform us that we may play our part in the transfiguration of the world from a place of suffering, death, and corruption to a realm of infinite light, joy and love.
Make us so obedient to your Spirit that our lives may become living prayers that witness to your unfailing presence. Amen
This new hymn from John L Bell, of the Iona Community, encapsulates the feelings of so many of us just now:
We Will Meet
We will meet when the danger is over,
we will meet when the sad days are over;
we will meet sitting closely together
and be glad our tomorrow has come.
We will join to give thanks and sing gladly,
we will join to break bread and share wine;
and the peace that we pass to each other
will more than a casual sign.
So let’s make with each other a promise
that when we’ve all come through is behind,
we will share what we missed and find meaning
in the things that once troubled our mind.
Until then may we always discover
faith and love to determine our way.
That’s our hope and God’s will and our calling
for our lives and for every new day.
The Church is usually open daily. The formidable front door will yield as you turn the handle, and lights will come on as you enter, to welcome you. But sadly, the Coronavirus crisis has forced us to suspend all services but we are open for Private Prayer on Thursdays from 10am to Noon, and on Sundays from 2-4pm
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’ group, sharing occasional services and pieces of outreach work with the Kelso and Cheviot Church of Scotland congregations, St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church, the Religious Society of Friends, and Kelso Baptist Church.
