St Andrew the Apostle

Welcome to St.Andrews, where we live God's love through prayer, worship and social action.

Our church has Saxon origins but the current building dates from the 15th century when Sir John Cornwall, a hero of Agincourt, paid to extend and expand the church to its current size. The church contains the grave and memorial to Richard Nicolls who named New York after his friend the Duke of York, later to become King James II.

We are open daily between 9am and 4pm for private prayer and contemplation. See our website or Facebook page for details of formal services.

The parish of Ampthill is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of St.Albans’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
