St Andrew's is an inclusive and welcoming congregation of the
Church of England and The Methodist Church.
As a Church of England and Methodist Ecumenical Partnership
we worship together. We don't have Church of England
services at one time and Methodist ones at another. That would
be far too simple.
Walk through our doors on Sunday morning and you could
find either of our ministers leading worship. Although the Revd
Mike Claridge is paid by the Church of England and the Revd Phil
Thomas by the Methodist Church they like to think they are
interchangable. All we can say is, You decide!
We don't take ourselves too seriously at St Andrew's. There's

Although our worship is early on a Sunday morning - when the

rude awakening. Worship is dignified but friendly and traditional
but informal. So you won't be too shaken by the experience. If
you want your worship to be "swinging from the chandeliers" we
may not be your sort of place. We often enhance our worship
with projection of pictures or videos.
Towards the end of our 9.30 am Sunday Service, around 10.30,
you may feel we've been invaded! That's when the Sunday
School come down to join us. Children are always welcome at
the Sunday School which starts at 9.30 am.
We hope to see you soon
