St. Andrew's Church

St. Andrew’s Bo’ness is a group of people that is part of the global Church, and within the UK, it is part of the Church of Scotland.

Small groups of us contribute to sharing the Good News about Jesus and showing the love of God in different ways throughout each week. For some people their first contact with us is through one of these small groups, but for others it is through our main Sunday morning meeting, when people of all ages come together to worship God through songs and listen to teaching from the Bible.

All worship services are informal and usually contain a lot of interaction. There is no dress code: some people wear suits and others jeans and T-shirts.
