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 join our 8am Holy Communion livestream or our 10am All-Age service livestream. You will find links to the orders of service below. Other events you can join from your home are also listed below.

Support and Community

The church building and office are now closed in line with new government advice. The clergy and our staff are still working from home and telephone calls will be diverted.  You are welcome to contact us: vicar at 01223 303469, office at 01223 306150.

Offers and requests for those in our community who may need help should be directed to the office, though we would encourage help to/from neighbours as the first line of response.

A St Andrew’s Facebook page is up-and-running.  We will post latest news there as well as here on the website homepage.

The vicar has written a pastoral letter to members of the congregation, which can be read here.
