 To assist those unable to access material via the internet we have established a phone line where people can phone in to hear the mini service or sermon.  

01674 902624. 

To hear the mini service people just need to dial in and wait. To hear the sermon, after dialling you need to press 1 then #. In either case there is a few seconds delay while the message loads so tell folk not to hang up! If folk press 1 for the sermon before the intro finishes the system doesn’t pick up on it and it defaults to the mini service. The message now says wait until after the tone before pressing 1 but give it a few seconds after that and do press # after pressing 1.

Sermon, prayers and news (or links to them) will be uploaded to our website 
www.oldandstandrews.com and the Old and St Andrew’s Facebook page.  Feel free to copy this and pass it on to Church members or friends who might not use the web or social media  
 
With the guidance easing there is plenty of room now to come to Church but please do still phone so that taking details for government requirements doesn’t cause a delay on entry. We are now allowed to sing (subject to Angus being in level 1) though face coverings are still required.

If you are thinking of coming please phone Thelma Robb 672263 or Willie Sinclair during the week prior to a particular Sunday on 675671 so that we have contact details for trace and protect.


Please continue to pray for one another and support where you can and remember that the congregation is united in love wherever we are and however we are worshipping.  

Stay safe! May the Lord bless you!
