“Reaching out and working together to share God’s love”

St Andy’s Church (formerly known as StAPH) is St Andrew’s Church plant which at 10.30am each week (except the 1st Sunday of each when we meet at St Andrews, Eastern Green).  We have a contemporary service that lasts about an hour and provides a perfect way to explore faith in a relaxed setting.

St Andy’s Church is led by Phil Richardson, who is married to Anne and moved to St Andy’s in May 2014. Phil is also training to become a vicar part-time at St Mellitus College in Londonclick here to discover more about Phil Richardson.

St Andy’s Church is a vibrant and growing congregation.  The themes of our services explore the fundamental questions of faith, such as ‘Does Prayer Work?’ and ‘What is Faith?’  Our worship music is band-led and our talks are relaxed, informal and challenging. We come together to worship God, be built up and encouraged in our faith, and empowered to go out and share the goodness of God with the world. All are welcome, and we have no expectation on anyone to ‘be a Christian’ to join us. 

Our Services

A typical service at St Andy’s Church is like any other Church service but with an informal feel. The layout is standard rows of seating but we have recently created a ‘creche’ space at the back of the room so that parents of babies and toddlers can join in with the service.

Music is led by guitarist or a band, and songs are a mixture of new and old. Our talks last around 10-15 minutes and relate to the theme or book of the Bible we happen to be focussing on (see below for what the theme is at the moment).

Afterwards you are welcome to stay for a cup of tea or coffee.

St Andy’s meets on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th Sundays of every month from 10.30am.

Below are details of forthcoming services at St Andy’s (see above details for the venue).
