5th January 2024, Weekly Update

A very happy New Year. May it be one in which you are both blessed and have many opportunities to bless others.


  1. Sunday 7/1/24

Worship returns to its normal times of 9.30 am and 10.30 am (also live-streamed). Junior Church and YF also resume at 10.30 am. The passage is Luke 9:51-62 and the theme is What Is Your Why? Between now and Easter we will travel with Jesus to Jerusalem and explore what it means to be a follower of Jesus.


I’m really excited that Hungry for Good News an initiative for 2024 will be launched on Sunday. More details to follow …


2)   Joy Lancaster

Joy died on 2 January. Joy was part of StAB in an unusual way, because she was never in the church building. In 2008, shortly after moving to North Berwick, she had a major stroke and became housebound. A committed follower of Jesus she was determined to become part of a local church. She contacted StAB and a house group formed. It has met with her in her house monthly for the last 15 years, and she has participated in weekly worship through CDs and the live-stream, being blessed and blessing others.
