St. Andrew’s Church is in a Local Ecumenical Partnership (LEP) with the Methodist Church entered into in 2004, and thus we are known as the Church in Toft – St. Andrew’s.   Our church lies away from the centre of the village (population under 600) and is medieval, partially rebuilt in Victorian times.    It is a pretty church with a tower, set in its churchyard and surrounded by 12 lime trees.    The churchyard, which is still open,  is famous for its snowdrops which we know have been around for over 200 years.   Inside the church is open, light and well cared for.    At the time of the Commonwealth, Dowsing on behalf of the Parliamentarians destroyed the ‘sacred images’ in many village churches around Toft, and this included all St. Andrew’s stained glass windows.  The glazing of the early 20th century allows the church to fill with sunlight, and our East window, though decorated with stained glass is not dense.    The two small side aisles are separated from the nave by three columns on either side and there is a beautiful wooden medieval roof.  No rood screen, thanks to Dowsing, gives the church a ‘wholeness’.    We have excellent heating, a lavatory with special needs facilities in a purpose-built North porch (2009).    There is a good sound system, and a ring of six bells.    A tea and coffee making facility helps with small catering.   Because of our LEP status we do much with our Methodist Friends worshipping in each other’s churches week by week and sharing in Lent and study groups and in our strong relationship with the community.    Our regular events are not only fund-raising but social events in which the village participates in a major way – these include special services, regular concerts and a variety of other events.
