Other activities in Church
Each week additional community activities take place in the Church and the Church Hall. Please ask to join our active Facebook page - Parish of Crewe:St Andrew with St John the Baptist - for further and current details.
We have a strong, active and friendly choir singing both contemporary and choral music, and are proud to be associated with the Royal School of Church Music. New members are always welcome.
St Andrew's Church was built in 1932 to a traditional design and an extension was added to the west end in matching style in the late 1960's.
To commemorate the merger of St Andrew's Parish and St John's Parish in 1994, a beautiful Bromsgrove Guild rose window, designed by A.J. Davies, was taken from St John's church building and was installed in St Andrew's in 1999.
Another associated church in the centre of Crewe, Christ Church, is currently closed and we welcomed their remaining congregation in 2013.
Plans are currently underway to create an enhanced toilet and kitchen facilities and a redeveloped Parish and Community Centre.
