International Presbytery Conference in Malta

From the 6th - 8th October the International Presbytery of the Church of Scotland was taking place in Malta. 

The meetings and accommodations were organised in Mount Saint Joseph. 

A Jesuit retreat house in the outskirts of Mosta with lovely surroundings. Freshly prepared food was served was just delicious. 

The programme for the spouses was very well received and showed the island from various sides.  

A great service was held by Rev. Ian MacLean, the Moderator of the Int. Presbytery, on Sunday. 

Rev. MacLean thanked the congregation of Saint Andrew's for the dedication and work the Presbytery heard of during the weekend.

 



September

        We send our best wishes and many blessings to 

        Caroline and Mikael 

who celebrated their wedding in the 

beautiful Ta Pinu church in Gozo. 

It is great indeed that the Bishop of Gozo and 

the Priest at Ta Pinu Church supported us this way. 

Rev. Kim said: 

"It was an amazing experience."

It was a great day for Rev. Kim Hurst and all of us at Saint Andrew's too.

Because it was the first weeding that had been held in Gozo.
