St Andrew’s Church, Chesterton

A thriving, open and welcoming church community for all ages

St Andrew's Church

St Andrew’s exists so that together we can worship God, share God’s good news, grow in faith, and live and work in accordance with God’s will. This website will tell you a little about us, and some of the ways in which the people of St Andrew’s seek to be faithful to Christ, and live in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Visitors, seekers and new members are always welcome at any of our services. We find that we often draw closer to God at moments of change in our lives. We are happy to be involved in Christenings, Weddings & Funerals.

Many of our events and activities take place at St Andrew’s Hall, our local community hall.

News and Events

Two new posts at St Andrew’s

St Andrew’s is looking to appoint to two paid roles in the coming month, one for a year but full-time (potentially) and one  permanent but part-time.

The first role is that of a youth worker & pastoral assistant.  The lead part of this role is to develop our church’s work with and for young people  (14 hours per week), but –given the right person—we are able to make this up to a full-time role by including a pastoral assistant brief that includes work amongst older people and assisting the Hall manager.  Details can be found here.

The second role is that of communications officer (and assistant parish administrator).  This is a part-time role (6 hours per week).  Here are the details.

Those appointed will have an office base in the Hall and will be part of the Church staff team that works with the Hall team in serving our local community.

Informal approaches are welcome.  Please contact the vicar, Nick Moir, (01223 303469, vicar@standrews-chesterton.org). St Andrew’s operates an equal opportunities policy and is committed to appointing the person who is best able to meet the brief.

To apply, please send a c.v. and covering letter, plus the names of two referees, to Canon Nick Moir, St Andrew’s Vicarage, 10 Lynfield Lane, Cambridge CB4 1DR.  Closing date for applications is 18 May.  Interviews will be held on Friday 29 May or the week following.

 

Thinking about dementia

The Thinking our Faith session on Sunday 8th March began with a panel discussion about dementia. You can listen to a recording of that discussion below, or download the discussion.
