St Andrew’s is a thriving, open and welcoming church community for all ages. Together we worship God, share God’s good news, grow in faith, and endeavour to live and work in accordance with God’s will.

Our church building is currently closed due to building works and the re-installation of the organ. We will open again as soon as possible.

This Sunday (9 August) is the 9th Sunday after Trinity. There are two livestreamed services: 8am Holy Communion (Book of Common Prayer; also in church) and 10am All-age Service (not in church; livestream only). At 5.30pm there will be Contemplative Communion in church. You will find links to the orders of service below (from Saturday), along with other events this week you can join from your home. During August there is no need to book a space for any of the services in church.
