A message from The Rector

Dear Friends
 
I am delighted to announce that with immediate effect the Rev Grace Redpath has been appointed as Associate Priest of St Andrew’s Episcopal Church Kelso. We will work together in association with our other Retired Clergy and Lay Ministers to further the work within our town and beyond.
 
The Bishop of Edinburgh will Commission Grace on Sunday 14th October at 10.00 am as part of St Andrew’s Harvest Festival Celebrations.
 
I could not be happier to be making this announcement and look forward to continuing our joint ministry for many years to come.
 
Please pray for Grace and Keith as they start this new stage in their lives.
With my love and prayers,
Bob

 

A thought for the day ahead.....

 

Holiness is not only about the spirit:

it is also the feet that take us to our brothers and sisters,

and the hands that allow us to help them.


Special Notice

The Food Bank is very short of the following items:

Tins of: Beans,Fruit, Meat, Potatoes, Puddings, Spaghetti, Macaroni, Vegetables 

Jars of : Jam, Marmalade, Pasta Sauce.

Also: Tea bags, and small packets of cereals.

There are donation trolleys in Sainsbury's and both Co-ops, and a collection bin at the back of Church.

The introduction of Universal Credit, plus the added expenses of the school holidays, is putting additional pressures on already tight budgets for many in our Community.

There but for the Grace of God....

Thank you for your support.

 

 

 The church is open daily. The formidable front door will yield as you turn the handle, and lights will come on as you enter, to welcome you.

There is level access for services, via the backdoor, through the gate at the left side of the Church.

 

 

St Andrew's is part of the Diocese of Edinburgh within the Scottish Episcopal Church, which is itself part of the world-wide Anglican Communion 

We are committed to exploring ways in which we can serve God both within our church families and in and around our local communities. We also play a full part in our town's ecumenical 'Churches Together' groups, sharing occasional services and pieces of outreach work with the local Church of Scotland congregations, the Quakers and the Roman Catholics.
