We hope you find the help and information you are looking for, but our website can only provide a flavour of life at St Andrew's and we invite you to contact us or come along, see for yourself and join us for worship. A warm welcome awaits you!
Coronavirus - services at St Andrew's are expected to resume in August
Since March, due to the current coronavirus outbreak, all acts of worship and public gatherings in our church and hall have been suspended. We have endeavoured to serve the needs of our congregation and wider community in other ways (see below).
Currently, we hope to resume services at St Andrew's on some Sundays in August, but before you come to church please check here for further information about service dates and any restrictions or special instructions, or contact the Church Secretary.

A Prayer for Today:
Lord Jesus, In the midst of a storm, You said, 'Peace be still', Bid our anxious fears subside, Sustain your church in faith, hope and love, Bring our nation through this tumult, Grant wisdom to those with heavy responsibilities, And healing and hope to those who are infected, Amen
Worship & events:
Our usual Sunday worship time is 11am. As services and events resume, information will be posted here. Meanwhile, please download the weekly service sheet and audio podcast prepared by URC Interim Moderator, Peter Stevenson, who is providing oversight at St Andrew's during our current minister's vacancy.
