NOTICES:
Sanctuary Mental Health Course:
We hope to run this course again, as it has been well received by those who have attended previously. In a small group over 8 sessions we will look at various aspects of mental health within the context of Christian faith. If you would be interested in attending, or wish to know more, please speak to Jane Harrison or email jane@standrewsbaptist.org.uk

Transport Ministry: If you are struggling to get to church, or to healthcare appointments, email pastoralcare@standrewsbaptist.org.uk, and we will do our best to help.

Our church vision focus for 2024 is ‘Growing in and by the word of God’. A further help that some may not be aware of is a series of weekly questions from the Sunday morning sermon. Some of the home groups use these in their gatherings. If you would find this a helpful resource for your personal study please contact Angus at angus.ross@gmail.com and he will add your name to the list of recipients.

We have an opportunity this summer of partnering with Mihai in Romania and our friends at ISF (International Sports Federation) to help run a children’s multi-sport camp, with opportunities for bible teaching. We anticipate there being between 100-125 children from Calarasi. The dates are 22nd-30th June. No specific sporting skills are required just enthusiasm and a desire to introduce children to Jesus. If you are interested in helping, please contact Peter or Philippa Cook in person or via email.

St Andrews Churches Eco Network invite you to help plant a native species hedgerow at the Western Cemetery: Sunday March 17th from 2pm. For further details and to let us know you are coming, please either email standrewschurcheseco@gmail.com or speak to Rosalind Hine – we need to be able to contact you in the event that poor weather dictates a postponement of the event. It would be great to see you there!

Olexandr Konovalov’s colleague from the University of St Andrews is looking for someone registered under the “Homes for Ukraine” scheme and willing to host her friends from Kyiv (a mother and her 17-year old son). For further details, please contact Olexandr.
