Worship on Sundays
At St Andrew's we seek to grow in faith, love and fellowship through our worship together. We strive to offer worship that inspires us - we have a choral tradition and the beauty of the choral music helps us to praise God; we have an awe-inspring building that opens our eyes to God's splendour and majesty; we encourage and challenge through sermons that take Scripture seriously; we offer a warm welcome and through our friendships and fellowship express our love and care for one another; through commitment to social justice and charity work we express our faith in God's love for all people. Children and adults, new and established, old and young together: we are all on a journey and bring ourselves, hopes and needs, into God's presence. Come and see!
Every Sunday morning we worship God through:
8am Said Holy Communion Service (Book of Common Prayer, traditional)
10.30am Sung (Choral) Eucharist Service with Sunday Club and a SATB robed choir
There is also an area for toddlers to 'toddle' and babies to lie. Children of all ages are very welcome. We aim to be a 'shush!!'- free church. Once a month we have an All Together Communion, where Junior Choristers join the choir, and all stay in church for an all age talk (No Sunday Club).
St. Andrew's Youth Family Group (SAYF) - During 10.30am Sunday Service - this group is for older children/Teens to explore, question and grown in faith. (Please note - no children's groups currently running due to Covid-19 restrictions)
Muddy Church - we meet outside to explore creation/nature and meet God there. 2.30pm normally the 1st Sunday of the month, to find out what we are doing and when, email Wendy:
The normal routine is as followed, but do double check for seasonal changes above.
6pm Compline (2nd Sunday) sung night prayer, exquisite evening office to end the day in peace
6pm Evening Prayer (3rd Sunday) said service
6pm Choral Evensong (4 + 5th Sundays), the glorious standard of Anglican worship with a high quality SATB choir. The opportunity to take part in Choral Evensong is not to be missed. It is a service only regularly sung in larger churches, cathedrals and Oxbridge chapels. We are privileged to offer it once or twice a month here.
