About Us

Saint Andrew's is a Church of England, in the Diocese of Bath and Wells. 

St Andrews has been a church at the centre of the community of Burnham on Sea for over 700 years, and our mission today is the same as it ever was: to live and tell the story of God's love throughout the town and surrounding area.

Consequently St Andrew's is an inclusive community where a warm welcome is extended to all throughout the services and activities that take place here. We look forward to welcoming you.


The usual pattern of services are as follows:

Thursdays 10 o'clock Holy Communion Service

Sundays 8 a.m  and 10 a.m. Holy Communion Services 

There is a small church in Edithmead, where a monthly service is usually held at 10 a.m. on the Third Sunday of each month.
