Dedicated Redevelopment Project Page
Following the awareness sessions that were held on 24th and 26th May 2022, a dedicated page has been set up on the Upper Annandale Parish Church website to provide the community with updates relating to the St Andrews Church Building Redevelopment Project. There you will find information and explanations about the plans, details on how you can help support the project, and updates from the site once the work begins. You can access this special page from the green button at the top of the website homepage or by clicking here. Please keep checking back on the Updates page for all the latest information.
Sponsor a Chair!
As many of you will be familiar, the building of St Andrew’s is a historic and iconic landmark that is well-known to Moffat residents and visitors alike.
St Andrew's, being an older building, is currently undergoing significant modernization to make the building more accessible, comfortable, flexible, environmentally friendly and available for community multi-use, to ensure that it can better benefit the community as a venue that can host a wide range of private and public events, and not just used on Sundays.
The building work is progressing well, but we need your support for the "Sponsor A Chair" initiative.
Your donation will assist us to purchase additional chairs, which will provide flexible seating for the multi- purpose use of the church building, along with a more suitable option for those with differing mobility needs.

WELCOMING YOU HOME
To all who are weary and seek rest; to all who mourn and long for comfort;
to all who struggle and desire victory; to all who sin and need a saviour;
to all who are idle and look for service; to all who are strangers and want fellowship;
to all who hunger and thirst after righteousness; and to whomsoever will come;
our church has opened wide the doors and, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, says to you...
ABOUT OUR CHURCH
We are a Church of Scotland congregation situated in the beautiful market town of Moffat, in Southwest Scotland.
In September 2023, the parishes of Kirkpatrick Juxta, Wamphray and St Andrews united to create the new parish of Upper Annandale congregating in Moffat.
We are delighted to welcome you to join us for our weekly worship at 10.30am each Sunday.
A very warm welcome awaits all.
The children are a treasured part of our congregation, as well as the wider community here in Upper Annandale.
Upper Annandale Parish Church offers a range of regular and one-off events for all ages and interests throughout the year.
HELP US TO SPREAD OUR
LOVE AND FAITH
Let us build a house where prophets speak, and words are strong and true,
where all God's children dare to seek, to dream God's reign anew.
Here the cross will stand as witness and as symbol of God's grace; here as one we claim the faith of Jesus:
All are welcome, all are welcome, all are welcome in this place.
