What to expect

We are a Church of England church and so follow the structure and wording for all our main Sunday services. This involves singing, listening to a Bible reading and a reflection on the passage and praying for the world.

On the 2nd, 4th and 5th Sunday we celebrate communion (A re-enactment of the last meal Jesus had before he died) If you wish to receive a token of bread and wine there will be an opportunity near the end of the service. There is also the offer of a prayer of blessing, although there is no pressure to receive either.

We are also blessed to have a talented Choir and Band lead us in our sung worship. The words of the songs are on our screen or available in printed format if needed. Our services last between an hour and an hour and a half and refreshments are served after the service

Sunday club:

We also have a Sunday club that takes places during every 10am service except for the 2nd Sunday. This is for children and their parents aged 0-11. We meet together after the first song and read, listen to a bible story and explore the topic together as a group. Please do speak to Claire or message if you want to know more.

We have started up a teenage group (ages 12+) every 1st and 3rd Sunday. We meet with the younger ones for food and then explore a topic in more depth in a separate room.

All are leaders are DBS checked and have undertaken safeguarding training.

Parade Service

Six times in the year we are joined by our scout and guides group who help lead the service for us. This service is open to everyone and is usually very interactive and slightly shorter (aprox 45 mins).

All together Sunday is a special service we have six times a year. Whilst at its heart it may look like a family service, the aim is for everyone to be all together for worship. We follow the same structure of a normal Sunday service but in a lively and interactive way. This is a great service to join if you’re new to church.

We meet every week for regular worship on a Sunday. Whether you are coming to church for the first time or moved to the area and are looking for a new place to worship we hope you find a warm welcome at St Andrew’s.

How to get here

A limited amount of car parking is available on Crown street, entering the one way system from King street and parking is on the right. There are a few spaces outside the front of the church but these fill up fast. The closest place to park is in Sainsburys although parking charges do apply.

Accessibility. We have accessible toilets, both entrances to the church are wheelchair friendly. We have a working hearing loop and large print service sheets.
