St Andrew's, Droylsden
Welcome to St Andrew's church website!
We describe ourselves as a church that is 'Welcoming All.... Encountering God.... Transforming Lives' and we seek to be a worshipping community who warmly welcome all to join us and take part and where the love of God is encountered and shared with others. We'd love to invite you to come along and become part of our community.
Our services are currently suspended due to the lockdown but we are open each Sunday for private prayer between 9.15 and 10.15am and we can also hold funeral services. There will be social distancing and hygiene measures in place to keep everyone as safe as possible. We have a risk assessment based on the Church of England advice. We will have a reduced capacity and will be placing a limit on the number of people allowed into the building at any one time - currently this is about 20-25 people. Those attending must wear face coverings unless they have an exemption.
Each week resources will be posted on this website as well as our Facebook page and Twitter. More resources can be found on the Church of England website, where you will also find information about the how the Church is responding at this time. If you need help, please contact our Vicar, Revd Jo Farnworth on 0161 330 4925.
We meet in a new church building called Church of the Epiphany which we share with Methodist and United Reformed Church congregations.
