You will all know that Martin our minister had a fall which resulted in a very serious break to his arm and elbow. As a result of this he has been signed off for a period of eight weeks. As a very fit and active person this is particularly frustrating for him.

In addition to the pain of such an injury he is also suffering from difficulty sleeping at night and the inevitable tiredness that results from this.

Meanwhile, the work of St Andrew’s goes on and we have been lucky to have our services ably led by Keith Scott and Tim Mineard initially and then for two weeks we have been delighted to welcome our friend David Searle. Ian Gray, our pastoral assistant is also undertaking additional duties.

We send Martin our love and best wishes and ask for God’s blessing on him and the manse family.

This year, the theme for the Church of Scotland’s General Assembly and Heart & Soul event is ‘Word of Life.’ Congregations have been encouraged to set up a Word of Life photo somewhere in their parish. Here’s our effort, outside the iconic Arbroath Abbey!

Rock Hero Holiday Club

Sunday, April 9th, 2017 | Tags: ,

We’re big fans of holiday clubs here at St. Andrew’s but this one Rock Hero, was surely one of the best ever! We wrote and produced the programme ourselves and all we needed was for the children to come along and join in – they didn’t disappoint us!! We had a fantastic week with around 60 children taking part. The fun was non-stop but we made sure that the boys and girls got to hear something about the amazing love of God, shown in Jesus. Most of all, thanks to our amazing holiday club team – 27 adults and teens, all giving up a week to concentrate on sharing with the children. Team – you were awesome!!
