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.

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.

Transept 2024 Arts Exhibition ‘(a)void’: Transept is holding its annual multimedia art exhibition from 5-10 April at Saint Andrew’s Episcopal Church (Queens Terrace, St Andrews, KY16 9QF).

This exhibition examines the ways in which we embrace or evade the voids in our lives.

Gallery Hours: 6-10 April, Sat-Sun: 12-5pm, Mon-Wed: 12-3pm
Special Performances: 6 April 5pm & 7 April 6pm
