COVID-19 Period Updates

St Andrew's Church is now open for public worship on Sundays at 10.30am.  As we follow government guidelines these will initially be said services of either morning prayer (following the form for Matins) or a simple Eucharist.  If you attend, please use the hand sanitizer on arrival and as you leave (you may wish to bring a pocket dispenser to use during the service too) and follow advice on social distancing.  If you are not part of our regular congregation, then we will ask you to leave your contact details for the purpose of test and trace.

If you are symptomatic please self-isolate and follow government advice.  If you develop symptoms after attending a service in church please let us know so we can ensure the necessary test and trace information is passed on.

If you are in a vulnerable group or wish to shield family members you may wish to remain at home instead of coming to the church building.  We will continue to circulate a weekly Benefice Newsletter and broadcast an online service using You Tube (available from 9am on Sundays) - if you'd like to be added to the circulation list please contact us.  

Weddings, Baptisms and Funerals may take place in church but following government restrictions and advice.
