St Andrew's is a friendly church in the heart of Guernsey. The service are traditional, 'central' Anglican in style. Our congregations are delighted to welcome visitors, enquirers and new attenders alike.
The Sunday services are8 am: Holy Communion (Common Worship Order 2 - the Book of Common Prayer as we know and love it) 10 am: Holy Communion (Common Worship Order 1, with hymns and musical settings led by our choir)
The clergy, Tim Barker (the Rector) and Juliette Robilliard (the associate priest), seek to preach sermons that unpack the Bible readings for the day and explore connections with our everyday living.
We are delighted to welcome enquiries about christenings (baptisms) and marriages. It is our privilege to support families at times of bereavement by taking funeral service, either in the parish church or at Le Foulon Crematorium.
The Rector is also the Dean of Guernsey - with responsibility for leading the Church of England parishes in Alderney, Guernsey and Sark.
St Andrew is the only landlocked parish in Guernsey. All the other parishes have coastline. But St Andrew, extending from the airport to the sports ground in Footes Lane, offers quiet beauty in its rolling landscape and its winding lanes between the hedgerows. You are sure to see plenty of Guernsey cattle, as well as features of interest such as the Little Chapel and significant reminders of the occupation of Guernsey during the Second World War.
The parish's formal name is St Andre de la Pommeraye - the last work reminding of the long standing tradition of apple production. This continues today, especially in the production of Guernsey's wonderful Roquette Cider (produced just over the parish boundary).
