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.

A Message from the Vicar

We are in a very painful place at the moment where our churches are locked and at St Andrew's this is particularly difficult as many people expect our doors to be open. However these are the current guidelines and they keep everyone safer.  While the doors may be locked the church has not shut-up shop. The building still contains the bread and wine of the Reserved Sacrament - a confident and symbolic statement of one of the many ways that Christ is present in the midst of our community. And it speaks of the hope that this gift will once again be available to us all.

Each day (except Saturday) at 6pm the Eucharist is celebrated in the Vicarage. You too may wish to pause at 6pm. There are lots of resources on the website. You can also email us with prayer requests which will be offered at the next Eucharist. While I was sceptical about it I have to admit that there is something strangely beautiful about saying mass in my dining room. And it is also an odd experience - not least when the cat gets involved (Elizabeth does not have the makings of a good server!)

  • We have produced a general booklet of prayers and study resources for you at home. Don't forget to make use of our sermons page, as well as other ideas for prayer at home.

  • While public worship is suspended, we are pleased to offer a worship booklet for you to use at home this Sunday and an all-age worship booklet if you have children at home. 

Do please contact any of the clergy if you want a chat or some assistance. 

With my love and God's blessing,

Fr Darren (posted 27th March)
