St. Andrew's Parish Church
Arbroath, Scotland

imageApril 7-11th has been Holiday Club week at St. Andrew’s, with Mega Makers being the theme. And what a fantastic week it’s been, with almost 70 children signed up and every day being a fun-filled combination of crazy games, story and song, and simple Christian teaching. With all of the stories coming from Matthew’s Gospel, the children have had the chance to learn something about Jesus, and his love for us. Click here to view more

Easter CodeThis week, 31st March – 4th April, has seen our Church packed with over 500 children for school assemblies and the brilliant, Easter Code. Designed for p7 children, the Easter Code is a thoroughly interactive learning experience which transports participants to 1st Century Palestine and the world of Jesus. Children get to see and sense for themselves what happened over the course of what we now call Easter. As before, their reaction was fantastic! Well done to the brilliant volunteer team who made the event possible and THANKS KIDS for coming and making it such a fun experience for everyone!

steph macleod 3Our Community Spirit building was the setting for our evening with singer songwriter, Steph Macleod – and what a fantastic night it was! Steph is an excellent singer and guitarist but his music comes alive through the telling of stories about his life. With three albums now under his belt – together with breakthrough appearances on national favourite programme,¬†‘Songs of Praise’ – there’s no doubt that his career is on the up and up. In days to come, those of us who were there will be able to say, ‘We saw him first!!’

SAM_1101The great news is that, yesterday, 8th January 2014, our container arrived at Namisu Village, Malawi!! A journey of thousands of miles, across land and sea, is over. You’ll be able to gauge from the pictures the level of excitement among the people there – especially the children! Click here to view more

imageWe’re in the middle of our Alpha course right now and are thoroughly enjoying it! And the great news is that wonderful things are happening among us as we open up to the claims of the Christian faith and, indeed, to Christ himself. Some among the group are talking about the changes in their lives that they’re experiencing; they’re talking about things looking different, about feeling much more positive about life! Others sense that they’re beginning to find that which they’ve been tip-toing around for years and years. Click here to view more

Messy sept 2013 7Following our summer break, it was brilliant to get back to Messy Church! As always, our Messy Church takes place on the last Sunday of the month and we were delighted to welcome over 60 children and adults to this session. And, yes, the craft session really was Messy!! The paint was everywhere and all of the crafts proved to be very popular with children and grown-ups alike. Combined with our opening games, our worship time during which we looked at Harvest, and our two-course dinner, it was a Messy Church to remember. Click here to view more

Welcome to St. Andrew's¬†Lots of churches have noticeboards outside their buildings which, among other things, declare, ‘All Welcome.’ Sadly, what is experienced within is something less. At St. Andrew’s Church, we have worked tirelessly over the years to make ‘welcome’ something that is genuine, and extended to all. The following pretty much sums up what we want you know about our church: Click here to view more

WelcomeI had opportunity to chat recently with a couple who had visited St. Andrew’s for the first time. Thankfully, their experience was a hugely positive one. In particular, they had this to day: ‘Your Church just exudes warmth.’ Well we have a modern, efficient heating system so, YES, it’s usually nice and warm! But they were referring to the experience of being genuinely welcomed.

St. Andrew’s organises itself around three principles: WELCOME, WORSHIP and WITNESS. Why not come alone and judge for yourself how we’re doing in terms of the welcome AND the other two!

See you sometime soon.
