Church of England Diocese of Southwark St. Peter St. Helier

Bishop Andrewes Church

<span style="font-size: 1rem;">Bishop Andrewes is one of two sibling Anglican churches serving the estate of St Helier in South London. We are a small community who desire to make Jesus the heart of our estate community. A number of community events take place in our premises during the week. Every Sunday we gather at 9am to worship and receive teaching from the Bible. We are informal. We think that our mission is 'out there', to join with what the Holy Spirit would like to do in the community. We think that every person is has a unique role to play in making Jesus the heart of our community. There is a place waiting for you.</span>
