Open for you

Rector, The Rev'd Canon Bob King and Associate Priest, The Rev'd Grace Redpath extend a warm welcome to our website

St Andrews Episcopal Church, Kelso


Welcome to St Andrew’s Scottish Episcopal Church in the beautiful Border town of Kelso.
St Andrew’s belongs to the Diocese of Edinburgh and is a part of the worldwide Anglican Communion.

The congregation is an eclectic group of people who believe passionately that we should be inclusive, open and welcoming to everyone.

Sunday and midweek worship are usually Eucharistic. The liturgy is delivered with reverence and respect, but always with a ‘light touch’. The choir at St Andrew’s is small but plays an important role within our worship.

St Andrew’s is an integral part of the community. Members of the congregation are involved in a wide number of local organisations and events.
 ‘Open for you’ is central to who we are.
Post COVID the building will be open during daylight hours for visitors and locals to call in for a time of peace and solitude.

Our prayer is that you will find God’s love revealed through the people and our building -that you will know you are loved, cared for, accepted and welcome.
