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 closed but St Andrew’s Church is still here–we have simply moved online!

This Sunday (7 June) is Trinity Sunday. There are three livestreamed services: 8am Holy Communion (Book of Common Prayer), 10am All-age Service and 5.30pm Informal Worship. You will find links to the orders of service below (from Saturday), along with other events this week you can join from your home.
