St Mary's Place, St Andrews, Fife, KY16 9UY Worship Times - Sunday at 9.45am


Digital Worship


The Kirk Session has taken the difficult decision that while Scotland is in Tier 4 the Church building will be closed and no worship will take place, including funerals.   

We may not be able to gather in the way we normally do, but worship will continue to be available here and also on our dial in option for anyone who doesn’t have access to the Internet.   The telephone number for the dial in option is 01334 585226 and this can be accessed at any time.
