Getting here

The village of Cold Aston stands in peaceful countryside a few miles west of Bourton-on-the-Water and the Fosse Way. A mighty sycamore tree stands on the village green which is surrounded by Cotswold stone houses and cottages, the village hall, a small school and a friendly pub. Beside the school, set back from the road, is St. Andrew's church, approached by a shaded path that passes a yew tree thought to be over 600 years old. The church building dates back to the 12th century although there are indications that a Saxon church may have stood on the same site. The only archaeological trace is the cross shaft now found in the porch. We do have a written record of 904 AD, when Werfith, the Bishop of Worcester, granted land at Cold Aston to a theygn named Wulfsig. Such grants were often made to mark the building of a church. The Christian community in the village continues to worship God in this beautiful building and seeks to serve the community in Cold Aston. We aim to be a friendly and welcoming church. We offer a variety of services including traditional compline and contemporary worship. We cherish our connection with the school which also uses the church building on a regular basis. In addition to the main Christian festivals, highlights of the church year are an Animal Blessing Service (usually in July) - all animals and their humans welcome! Our annual village Fayre (usually first Saturday in August) followed by a service of Thanksgiving on the Sunday. And we celebrate God's bounty with our Harvest Festival (usually in October).
