Welcome to St Andrew’s Church

St Andrew’s Church is a beautiful place of Christian Worship.

From the reflective recitation of psalms at daily Morning and Evening Prayer to the exuberant sounds of song led by the Worship Band to the complexities of four-part anthems sung at Choral Evensong, St Andrew’s offers worship in many different styles and traditions.

Services featuring music from Taizé or Iona enrich the mix as does the silence and stillness of the Julian Group meeting in prayer.

The buildings are open for prayer every day and there is always a quiet space for reflection available.
