  • “Kirk” is a Scots word that means church.

  • We are Presbyterian, which means that we are a church that is governed by elders. In every local congregation, we have elders who are appointed to rule the church. When they meet, it is called a “Kirk Session,” which is an official and private court of the church. The minister of a congregation is known as the “Teaching Elder”. In the Presbyterian Church we are linked with other congregations through the formation of the Presbytery, which is a higher and public court of the church.

  • We are Reformed which means that we stand in the tradition of the Reformation that swept Western Europe in the 16th Century. A summary of our beliefs are noted below.

  • After 200 years of being affiliated with the Church of Scotland, the Kirk is now a congregation within the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

  • Our long range plan is to form The Presbyterian Church of The Bahamas.

St Andrew’s Presbyterian Kirk believes in helping our children to build a special relationship with God.

Our objective is to provide an age appropriate curriculum which helps children to relate the Bible and its lessons to their everyday life, learn about God, the person and work of Jesus, and the men and women of the Old and New Testament.

Children accompany their parents for worship service at 10:30 am and are invited to join Sunday School classes immediately following the Children’s Message, approximately 15 minutes into the Service. Classes are held in the Kirk Hall. There are excellent nursery facilities available for families with children from birth to 3 years old.
