St Andrew's N16: Creating Community Together

St Andrew’s N16 is a place where all are welcome and accepted. All sorts of different people are connected with St Andrew’s, and we celebrate our diversity representing a wide range in age, economic status, physical ability, LGBTQ+, ethnicity, mental health and background.

People come for a variety of reasons - for community, for worship, for the beauty and heritage, and many other things. You are welcome whoever you are: whether you’re seeking more with questions or curious but sceptical. All are welcome: all faiths and none. This is a Church of England parish church and therefore belongs to everyone in the neighbourhood.

Find out more about us and come and see for yourself at a Service (Sunday 10.30am) or Open Church (Sunday 9.45am-12.45pm) or check out the website www.standrewsn16.org. 

The church was designed by Sir Arthur Blomfield (1884) and is distinguished by its stunning stained glass windows (Heaton, Butler and Bayne) and a beautiful scheme of wall paintings in both the nave and the chancel (Alexander Higerty).

Over the years we have been known as St Andrew's Bethune Road and St Andrew's Stoke Newington (the formal title).


St Andrew’s takes its duty and obligation to protect all extremely seriously. We have adopted the national Church of England's robust procedures and guidelines. You can find out more about the national policies and procedures at www.churchofengland.org/safeguarding.
