Church of England Diocese of Liverpool St. Andrew Orford

St Andrew's, Orford

The church has now re-opened with our new vicar, the Rev. Gill Hitchen

St Andrew's is the parish church serving north Orford in the Borough of Warrington. From humble beginnings, worshipping in people's homes, the church grew, and a fine modern building was completed in 1963. St Andrew's lies at the heart of a council estate built after War.

St Andrew's is liberal catholic in tradition and our worship is principally Eucharistic.  Our main act of worship (before the introduction of Covid-19 regulations) is the Sung Eucharist at 10.00am on Sundays. The congregation is made up of friendly people and newcomers are always welcome. We look forward to meeting you.

"The parish of Orford: St Andrew is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs.
