St Andrew’s is the parish church of Rushmere, which is located on the north east side of Ipswich (IP5 1DH). Our aim is to be a witness to the Christian faith within the Church of England, drawing people into the worship of God, in particular, through its threefold ministry of worship, hospitality and prayer; and allowing a wide range of Anglican traditions to flourish.
