Sunday evening, 5th February, saw our first ever Café Church – a big success with over forty in attendance. There was a relaxed atmosphere as people shared coffee together and enjoyed the café-style ambience that had been created. Carol-Ann led music and that was followed by group sharing around the topic of family relationships. Real discussion around real-life subjects – that’s what our Café Church is going to be about.
Come and join us next time – Sunday 5th March, 6.30pm in our Community Spirit building – and thereafter on the first Sunday of each month.
What a wonderful weekend of celebration we’ve enjoyed as together we gave thanks for the twenty-five years of having Martin and Elaine leading our congregation! A dinner for office-bearers on Friday night was followed by a drop-in coffee afternoon on Saturday. The climax of the weekend was the morning worship, led by John Chalmers. At the end of the service, time was taken for expressions of gratitude which Martin concluded by reminding us that, when all else is said and done, the glory and thanks is due to God alone.
And now? Onwards, ever onwards!
It’s odd that faith is often written off as being ‘for women’ when Jesus’ original followers were all men!!! And beyond that, some of them were rough and ready! At St. Andrew’s, we’ve always made sure that there is plenty going on for men – from social gatherings to activity nights AND, as in the following, time and space for spiritual growth.
This new monthly gathering will focus on what it is for a man, in 21st century Scotland, to be a follower of Jesus. Each month (Wednesday evenings at 7pm) we’ll meet in our Community Spirit building to work our way through Krish Kandiah’s book, ‘Dysciples.’ The first meeting is on Wednesday 25th January.
This is for any and all men, from older teens to seniors. You don’t have to be a member – you just need to come along! At the very least, there will be good coffee and something to eat – so what’s to lose!! See you there.
