Our worship at St Andrew’s reflects the diversity of our church community, which includes people of all ages and backgrounds. Book of Common Prayer (BCP) Holy Communion and Evensong are very traditional services. Our Family Service and All-age Communion try to be accessible to the widest possible range of ages. We also have regular informal services in the evening and occasional healing services. Please see listed below the monthly pattern of services.
We are very happy to welcome families to all of our services, and a play area is available should your children become bored! On 2nd and 4th Sundays in the month in term time, Junior Church meets in St Andrew’s Hall at 10 am, joining the congregation in church towards the end of the service.
Some past sermons are available to read and download (and there are some you can also listen to).
