Some information to keep you up to date with life in St Andrew Blackadder

Friday 21th January 2022


 1. Malawi Coffee morning Saturday 22 January 10 am till Noon.

 To raise funds to build a classroom block for day care at Kauma Village. Come if you can.

 2. Kaleidoscope - St Andrew Blackadder Magazine

 Most months we publish a magazine. While useful for church members it’s also a great way of letting the community know that the church is alive and active.  I encourage you to leave your copy lying around at home for others to dip into. Perhaps your hairdresser or cafe would be happy to have a few copies lying around too. Could you ask, and if they say ‘yes', take a copy there?

We used to deliver Kaleidoscope to everyone’s home. Now we ask people who come to church to collect their own copy.  If you aren’t able to come to church at the moment, you can read it online. Click here to see the latest issue.  Alternatively, if you would appreciate having a paper copy delivered to you, please let Julie in the office know.

3. Sunday 23 January

We meet in the church building for worship at 9.30 and 10.30 am. The 10.30 service will be streamed - link below. We continue to reflect on our stewardship of all God has given us. This week our focus is on time.

 At 6 pm there will be a United Service for the Week of Christian Unity in Abbey Church.

 4. Messy Church

 Messy Church will be back on Sunday 6 February at 4 pm.  Please spread the word to families who you know who might be interested in being part of it.

 5. Another Gift Day Thank You - from Scripture Union

 The cabins at Scoughall are now built and were painted this week ready for the Easter camps.  There are photos of the cabins (and the painting party from StAB at work!) on the notice board.  Robin Maclellan of Scripture Union writes: “It is my honour to be able to write to express our deep thanks for the wonderful gift of £7,236.  We are so grateful to the church for choosing to allocate a share of their gift week appeal towards the costs of a new cabin at Scoughall. This will make an enormous difference to things moving forward in 2022. Thank you for your friendship and practical partnership in the gospel!"

6. Guild

 The Guild Office have indicated that in person meetings should not begin until February and so the joint meeting with Abbey on January 25 has, regrettably, been cancelled.  

7. Hugh and Margaret Trevor’s phone number

Hugh and Margaret have a new phone number.  In line with best practice I do not include individual’s contact details in this general email. Contact Hugh directly by email if you would like his number.

 8. Details for regular weekly activities.
