Enquirers’ Group.  In the run up to Easter I should like to offer an  Enquirers’ Group for those who are not adult communicant members of the church.  The group is to allow people to think more about faith and what is involved in church membership.  It is a chance for people to ask questions that are important to them.  After a number of meetings, people will choose whether they wish to seek to be admitted to membership of the church at a Service of Admission on Easter Day, Sunday 12th Aprill.  There is no pressure on anyone attending to become a communicant member of Christ’s Church.  What is important is that each person does what feels right to them after having spent time thinking about it.  The first meeting of the group will take place on Sunday 1st March at 7.00pm in the Manse (20 Priory Gardens, St Andrews).  If you know of anyone who might be interested in attending, please let them know about the group and ask them to contact the Church Office (01334 478144) expressing interest by Monday 24th February.  

Lectionary Readings 1st March:  Genesis 2:15-17;  3:1-7, Romans 5:12-19 and Matthew 4:1-11.
