One of two churches in the Parish of Dibden (the other being All Saints', Dibden), St. Andrew's is a welcoming, modern, growing Anglican church with an open Evangelical and gently charismatic flavour. Sunday Services attract all ages with facilities for children - including a well-equipped crèche - in St. Andrew's Centre adjoining the church.

In addition to the events listed under the Service and Events tab, there are a number of Home Groups that meet each week, usually on Tuesday and Wednesday, both during the day and in the evenings.

The Centre, including large hall, kitchens, children's rooms, lounge, church office and Coffee Shop, has become the heart of the community, used by many local groups as well as the church - a bridge bringing many closer to God.

There are strong links with local schools through an Assemblies Team and a full-time Children's and Youth Pastor was appointed in 2009. Sunday worship is lively and contemporary - but not gimmicky - while at All Saints'worship is in a more traditional style and setting.
