St. Andrew's Parish Church
Arbroath, Scotland
 

10622776_679164215505577_6609108758564164816_nIt’s no secret that Martin, our minister, has for many years longed to have a saxophonist as part of our worship band! So when Robert started coming to church some months back – and when it became clear that he was an accomplished sax player – he was welcomed with open arms!! Robert spends most of the year in the USA but comes to Scotland for several months each year. It can be said with some certainty that when he is here in Scotland he will be blowing that sax in St. Andrew’s Church! Robert – you’ve made Martin a very happy minister!!

brightWhen one reads the statistics concerning the plight of children in the poorest parts of the world, the sense of hopelessness felt can be overwhelming – the scale of the problem far beyond our ability to make a difference. But when you think in terms of the 300 children we care for in our two centres in Malawi, suddenly it becomes more manageable. And all the more so, when we start to think in terms of individual children, we begin to realise that with love and practical compassion, EVERYTHING is possible! Click here to view more

police chief‘Tayside’s top police officer, Chief Superintendent Eddie Smith,  will today reinforce the message that those who sell so-called legal highs are “not welcome in Angus”. This makes good reading in today’s Courier (21st August 2014) for all those of us who want to see the closure of head shops in Arbroath and across Angus. Though the police are restricted in what they can do by the state of the current legislation, there is no doubt that they are as committed as we are to ridding our town of the open selling of these highly dangerous substances.

10560464_676965839058748_8919404807733783503_oTuesday 19th August saw staff, volunteers and a number of those who use the Havilah service down at the Vicky Park for a BBQ and afternoon of games – and what a brilliant time everybody had! The food was, of course, excellent but the boys v girls rounders game was the highlight of the day!! Both of our ministers joined in the game for a short time with Martin making two impressive catches to get the girls team out!! Of course, the emphasis was on fun and laughter and nobody was keeping the score (apart from Martin!) Click here to view more

imageGiven our opposition to the existence of shops selling so-called ‘legal highs’ in Arbroath, it was with dismay that we learned this week of the death of a young local man – his death being bound up with the taking of these substances. In the space of just four short months, he lost over four stones in weight and became a shadow of his former self. Though he has previous involvement with other kinds of drugs, the tragedy is that it is since beginning to take these NPSs that his downfall has been completed. Click here to view more

untitledWell, it doesn’t get much bigger than this! St. Andrew’s Church is delighted to announce that the world-renowned London Community Gospel Choir is coming to perform in our church on 19th September 2014. The doors open at 7pm with the concert kicking off at 7.45pm. With the price of the tickets pegged back to just £10, this is one not to miss – a choir of this stature right here in OUR town! Here is a choir that has performed with everyone from Sir Paul McCartney to Kylie Minogue, from Stevie Wonder to Blur – a choir that has been one of the best-loved acts at the Glastonbury Festival for twenty years – coming to Arbroath!

With the news that Candace is to be leaving us this autumn, we find ourselves in the position of having to recruit a new Office Administrator.

Indeed, the post has now been advertised in the regional press.

Within the life of St. Andrew’s Church, the importance of a smooth-running, efficient office can not be overstated. We’re looking, therefore, for someone who has excellent administrative skills and who can respond to the often hectic schedule that the congregation sets!

securedownload (2)For those of us who were in Glasgow during the time of the Commonwealth Games, 2014 will be a year we’ll remember for a long time to come! The atmosphere around the city was wonderful from start to finish, with the people of Glasgow living up to the motto of the games: ‘People make Glasgow.’ But for the St. Andrew’s Church Mission team, it was special for all kinds of other reasons.

imageWe’re delighted to announce that Adele Ramsay is heading up our youth work during this summer period. Adele first came to St. Andrew’s as a primary-school girl attending one of our ever-popular holiday clubs. But following that, she asked to be baptised and has gone from strength to strength ever since. Click here to view more

messyAnother season of Messy Church has drawn to its end – a season of many highlights, lots of fun and laughter and the building up of our Messy community! Our Messy May was the usual mix of games, crafts, worship and food ‘n’ fellowship. Messy Church will resume after the summer holidays but we’re not quite finished. The good news is that our church family trip to Wellbank takes place on 22nd June, from 1.30pm, and that booking is open NOW through the Church Office!! See you there!
