What happens in worship at St Andrew’s?

You will be made very welcome at this typical URC service which includes Hymns, Bible Reading, Prayers, Sermon, a talk with the children.  Members of the congregation take part, for example reading the Bible or leading prayers. Occasionally the ‘sermon’ will take the form of a discussion. 
Usually after the second hymn the children go to their own group (junior church), but from time to they stay in for an ‘All Age’ Service. Click here to find out more about Junior Church
The Sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated at the first Sunday Service of alternate months from January and additionally at Easter.

Following the Sunday Service we enjoy tea, coffee and fellowship together.
Several times each year is a Scout Parade service and the dates are given on the calendar.
There is of course a full range of festival services at Christmas and Easter.

The church is fully accessible. Wheelchair users and baby buggies are welcome.  There is a loop system for the hearing impaired. We are trying to be a Dementia Friendly church and have pictures to illuminate the words of information signs.
