Do you want to FAST this Lent?

(courtesy of Pope Francis)


           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

Prayer ideas and suggestions to help you make Lent 2019 special.

Sat 23rd March

Pray for our Vestry and Wardens. What will you do to help St Andrews’ Mission Work this year?

Sun 24th March

Really pay attention at the Eucharist today. Sit in a different place in church and try to see everything in a new way.




 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.
