Welcome

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 now open for personal prayer. Public services will resume with the 8am Holy Communion on Sunday 12 July – please see the pewsheet for full details and how to reserve seats.

This Sunday (12 July) is the 5th Sunday after Trinity. There are three livestreamed services: 8am Holy Communion (Book of Common Prayer), 10am All-age Service and 5.30pm Taize Service. You will find links to the orders of service below (from Saturday), along with other events this week you can join from your home.
