Take 5

5 Marks Logo.jpg

‘Take 5’ is about the church’s engagement in the Five Marks of Mission, and the Take 5 committee maintains our links to a range of people and projects.   

The committee also makes recommendations to the PCC each year about how to share out the major part of St Andrews’ charitable giving: 10% of our ‘planned giving’ income is given away each year in grants.

On this page below are a selection of links to information about the projects and people we support.

On the Take 5 Background Section below [click here] are various documents underlying the work of the Take 5 committee.
