21st November – Christ the King

23rd November 2021

On Sunday, our service was taken by our retired minister Robin Paisley assisted by Lay Reader Fraser Gold, as our rector, Andrea, is on holiday. We celebrated Christ the King with dramatic readings from Daniel and Revelation plus the gospel from John. Robin explained that apocalyptic means removing the veil, so we can have a glimpse of mysteries which are usually beyond our understanding. However, God has revealed his truth in a way we can understand through Jesus Christ.

We are planning our Christmas services and have produced an information flyer. A full range of services is planned, but unfortunately some social activities like the Christmas lunch and the November Coffee Morning are not taking place due to the pandemic. We do have coffee after our services and hope to have a Coffee Afternoon at the end of January.

The next big event is our Patronal Festival on St Andrews day November 30th when we are looking forward to welcoming Bishop Kevin for his first visit to St Andrews. He has been in post for over a year but due to the pandemic has been unable to visit churches until fairly recently and has had to meet congregations by Zoom. Services continue on Sundays at 10 am, Thursday at 10 am and the Interchurch prayer group in the Garden room also at 10 am.
