new to church?

Want to know more about Christianity?

We would love to talk to you about our faith and answer any questions you have. Please speak to any member of the team on Sundays, or use the form on our Get In Touch page and drop us a line - we'll call you for a chat!

We run the Christianity Explored course at various times of the year, which is an internationally run course looking at what it means to be a Christian - find out more at

What happens at your services?

When you arrive at church there will be people inside the door to welcome you, and give you a service sheet so you can follow along. Feel free to ask any of the team any questions you may have including the all important "where are the toilets?"

Services are led by a member of the ministry team, with another giving a talk. Church members read the readings and lead the congregation in prayers (this is pre-arranged - don't worry, no-one will ask you to stand up and lead the prayers!)

There will be lots of singing and you should feel free to stand and join in, or stand or sit and listen - whatever you are comfortable with. At St Andrew's we sing a wide range of music ranging from old hymns to modern worship songs.

All ages are more than welcome and we have a creche area at the back of Church if you want to use it.

During one of the songs there will be a financial collection. Please do not feel under any obligation to contribute, just pass the plate along.

After the service please join us for a hot drink in the Chapter House, next to the Church.
