Welcome to All Saints’, St Andrews

Montage of images of All Saints'

Welcome to All Saints’ Scottish Episcopal Church, within the Diocese of St Andrews, Dunkeld and Dunblane; part of the worldwide Anglican Communion.

Situated in the historic old town of St Andrews, close to the ruined cathedral and castle, All Saints’ was founded in 1903 as a mission to the fishing families who lived here above the harbour.

The church is open all day, every day for any who wish a quiet place for prayer and reflection. Prayer and the Sacraments are at the heart of our life, with the Eucharist celebrated here every day of the year.

Though surrounded by history, the congregation of townspeople—as well as university staff and students—live in the present, worshipping God and looking with hope to the future.

Prayer for Easter

Lord of all life and power
who through the mighty resurrection of your Son
overcame the old order of sin and death
to make all things new in him:
grant that we, being dead to sin
and alive to you in Jesus Christ,
may reign with him in glory;
to whom with you and the Holy Spirit
be praise and honour, glory and might,
now and in all eternity.

The Right Reverend Michael Henley, CB (16 January 1938–21 March 2014)

As many of you will know, Bishop Mike’s funeral took place at All Saints’ on Friday 4 April, a service largely for family and close friends.

A memorial service will take place in St Ninian’s Cathedral, Perth on Saturday 17 May at 2.30pm.

This will be an opportunity for our diocese, of which he was bishop from 1995 until his retirement in 2004, and for the wider Scottish Episcopal Church to give thanks for his life and ministry.

All are welcome to attend.

St Ninian’s Cathedral, St Methven Street, Perth PH1 5PP


A Saturday working party to prepare the church for Easter is being planned by the Vestry. If you would like to help, please give your name to Liz Sidebottom or Bernice Smith.

This year the Diocesan Lent appeal is raising money for two local charities:

Sense Scotland

Sense Scotland

Sense Scotland

Sense Scotland has been working for over 25 years with children and adults who have communication support needs because of deaf-blindness, sensory impairment, learning and physical disabilities.

Sense Scotland was formalised as a charity in 1985. It grew quickly from its beginning as a small group of families pressing for services for their children, who were affected by deaf-blindness, many because of maternal rubella. Since then the organisation has gone on to successfully support thousands of projects and services throughout Scotland.

Artlink Central provides opportunities for people with mental health problems and learning disabilities to engage with art, music and drama. They also work with elderly people, people with dementia, and children with additional support needs providing access to the arts.

In addition, a current project called Freedom to Create is taking place in HMYOI Cornton Vale where prisoners participate in visual arts, drama and dance.

Involvement in the arts provides mental health problems, changes attitudes and behaviour, and improves relationships with family members.
