WELCOME TO OUR CHURCH
A very warm welcome to St Andrew’s Parish Church.
There has been a place of worship on this site for over a thousand years,
so we are a very ancient church. But more importantly we are a living
community here to serve the needs of our parish and local area now.
We are committed to the care and protection of children and people of all ages: more information about our safeguarding and child protection policy can be found here.
News and Greetings
The Christmas season is often celebrated for twelve days, ending with the Epiphany. However, contemporary use has sought to express an alternative tradition, in which Christmas lasts for a full forty days, ending with the Feast of the Presentation on 2 February. The season of joyful celebration that began at Christmas now continues through the successive Sundays of Epiphany. Epiphany means “to show forth” or “make manifest” and with the visit of the Wise Men Jesus was made manifest to the Gentiles, and this continues with the account of the Baptism of Jesus and the wedding at Cana.
