St Andrew's Great Ryburgh with Testerton & Little Ryburgh

CHURCH SERVICES resume from Easter Sunday April 4th (with current Govt. social guidelines).

Services and events click tab / then Calendar tab. And BENEFICE Services tab for our local Churches group.

St Andrew's, Great Ryburgh, is a distinctive cruciform (cross-shaped) Church with a millennium-old round tower and early 20th Century embellishments designed by Sir Ninian Comper. It is complemented by the adjacent, recently constructed William Martin Building adding new scope to the church's ministry. 

The Church's Patron Saint Andrew was one of the twelve Apostles of Jesus. The south transept (wing) of the Church with its own altar bears the name of another Apostle, the Saint Thomas Chapel. 

The ruin of All Saints Church, Little Ryburgh is the site of our annual Easter Sunrise Service. The churchyard / cemetery there remains in use serving both Little and Great Ryburgh.
