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.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE SERVICES AND ACTIVITIES BELOW ARE CURRENTLY NOT TAKING PLACE, AS THE CHURCH BUILDING HAS TO BE CLOSED. PLEASE REFER TO THE INFORMATION LISTED ON THE welcome page FOR DETAILS OF VIRTUAL 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 of the month during term time, Junior Church (groups for children and youth under 18) meets in St Andrew’s Hall at 10am.
Some past sermons are available to read and/or watch.
