Mission Week at St. Andrew’s

A Mission Week is coming up at St. Andrew’s Church, Queen Street, Peterhead.

Rev. Dr. Abi Ngunga and the congregation are inviting you to three evenings (Monday, November 21 to Wednesday, November 23 inclusive) each starting at 7.30pm; of inspiring, encouraging, refreshing and challenging talks on ‘The Great Story of God on Mission’ from and through various individuals throughout history.

This is another exciting opportunity for you to come and deepen your understanding of God, as well as to find perhaps not “where God fits into the story of your life”, but rather “where your life fits into this great and wonderful story of God’s mission”.

You will also expect to discover exciting areas of His mission through your life in our community, our surrounding world and beyond. Who knows what God can do in and through you.

The friends at St. Andrew’s look forward to seeing and welcoming you. Tea and coffee will be served each evening.
