There are many different types of services at St. Andrew’s. If you’re not sure what you might enjoy, come along and find out. It can seem bewildering at first but there are lots of friendly people to help you out.
Our main service is at 10am on Sunday, always followed by refreshments.

Our Said Eucharist services happen every Sunday at 8am. This tends to be a quieter, more intimate service without music.
Sung Eucharist every second, fourth and fifth Sunday of the month at 10am. Our Sunday Club for primary school aged children runs on the second and fourth Sundays.
All Age Eucharist
Like A Service for All, our All Age Eucharist – every first Sunday of the month at 10am – is tailored specially for families and young people. It’s shorter and uses more modern English than our Parish Eucharists. Music is led by our informal St. Andrew’s Singers group.
At 10am every third Sunday of the month we have an informal service without a Communion. It’s tailored specifically for young people who take part with scripture readings, prayers and music – as with all our services, anyone is welcome to come and join in. Music is led by our informal group of St Andrews Singers and musicians. After refreshments on this Sunday, there is a short said Eucharist at 11.15am.
Andy’s@4 is on every second Sunday at 4pm, aimed at pre-school and primary-aged children. It is a very informal service that lasts about half an hour. We use the space of our big church imaginatively, singing and making things together. Afterwards, we all enjoy squash, tea or coffee and a biscuit together.
Evening services rotate with a Sung Evensong, a Taizé or Celtic service and a service of the Blessing of Light and Ministry of Healing, each once every three months.
A mixture of songs, craft, stories and games for children aged 0 to 4 years. We begin in church sitting in a circle and singing a few songs – favourites include “Mister Cow” and “Have You Seen the Pussycat?” – and then a simple story followed by making something (it might be a Mother’s Day card or a decoration!). Then we might have a march – and have a turn at ringing the church bell. Then it’s drink and a biscuit, after which we get the ride-ons and toys out for the last 10 minutes or so.
