Saint Andrew's is the parish church for the village of Ombersley which lies within the Worcester Diocese of the Church of England.
The church is a fine example of the work of architect Thomas Rickman. Completed in 1829, it copies fourteenth century styles with a high stone vaulted ceiling and stained glass windows. The chancel of the former, 13th century, church survives in the churchyard and is now a Sandys family mausoleum.
This is a lovely spacious church which is a beautiful setting for weddings.
The service pattern at Saint Andrews is as follows:
The First Sunday in the Month
A Common Worship Holy Communion service is held at 11:00 a.m. Children are welcome to join their families for a blessing at the altar.
