What We Do

Sunday Services

Service is held Sunday mornings at 11.00 am. 
The service follows the standard form of Presbyterian worship as found in the Book of Common Order of the Church of Scotland published in 1994.
Holy Communion is normally celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. In accordance with the practice of the Church of Scotland, members of any branch of the Church are invited to receive the sacrament.

Sunday Club

For children aged 3–11 we offer interesting educational activities running concurrently with the church service.
Coordinator: Mrs Gloria Savage.
Volunteers interested in becoming Sunday Club teachers are always welcome. For more information please contact the Minister.

Youth Group

For the young people in the church, both permanent and transient, all kinds of activities are organized. We explore Rome, have picnics in the park, go out for dinner and go on daytrips. 

Woman’s Guild

In the near future we are hoping to start a women’s guild.

Men's Club

In the near future we are hoping to start a men’s club since we have recognized the need for men living away from their families to interact socially.

Bible Study

Bible study takes place every third Sunday of the month from 12.30 – 13.30 p.m.

Mission and Outreach

In 2003 the Mission Committee was formed by people who felt it was important to define the church’s mission in the world today, local, national and international.
The first task was to draft a Mission Statement:

Mission in Action

At the moment we try to help locally by providing packed lunches to refugees twice times a week on Monday (in collaboration with All Saints' Church and the Roma Korean Church) and Thursday. During the winter months, November through April, we work together with the Salvation Army to give food, hot tea and blankets to the homeless.

Missionaries of Charity

At Epiphany, Pentecost and Harvest Sunday we collect food and money for the Missionaries of Charity at Tor Bella Monaca, a poor neighbourhood in the eastern outskirts of Rome. Mother Teresa of Calcutta founded this order of nuns. They run a home for young mothers and every Saturday hand out food and clothes to the needy in the area.

Rice Bowl Appeal

During the six weeks of Lent we collect money for the Rice Bowl Appeal. This is supported by Churches Together in Rome, an ecumenical body made up of mainly English speaking churches in Rome. St Andrew’s organizes Cooking Demonstrations, a Quiz Night, and a Sponsored Walk on Palm Sunday.
