St. Andrew’s Church has been serving God in the community of Eastern Green since 1875 and more recently Allesley Green and Bannerbrook Park. Our purpose as a church is:

  • To encounter the life changing God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, through prayer, worship and bible study
  • To make disciples of Jesus
  • To serve those in need especially in our own local community as if they were Jesus

The Church is open to visitors every day from 9am till 5pm. Why not come inside and have a look at this beautiful late Victorian building? It is a very peaceful place simply to sit and pray.
