Our Mission Statement

‘To make St.Andrew’s Church a major centre of village life for all villagers, as a place of worship, and the place where the community can gather for a wide variety of village activities in a building which is inspiring, welcoming, accessible and and well-resourced’

Current matters

Covid-19

On Saturday 31st October 2020 the Prime Minister announced that a national lockdown will begin on Thursday 5th November and will last for four weeks.

From 5th November, public worship is not permitted in churches.

As a result, the services in St Andrew’s Church on Sunday 15th November and Sunday 22nd November will not take place.

It is very much hoped that services can start again on Sunday 6th December.
The church will remain open for private prayer, reading and contemplation on Tuesdays and Fridays each week from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm.

For more information please check for updates here on this website.

Do you know the late Clifford John Bowler?

Merefield & Henstridge, the local Funeral Directors, is trying to contact the family of the late Clifford Bowler.

“We are trying to contact the family of the late Clifford John Bowler, who had a wife called Louise and a daughter called Claire. The family used to live in Nightingale Lane at Wardour. The family has since moved. If any one can help us it would be much appreciated. Please call Merefield & Henstridge on 01747 853532”.

The Chair Appeal

There is still an opportunity for chairs to be funded, and dedications on plaques added in memory of a loved one or happy event.

So far, 60 chairs have been sponsored, and we have a further 10 to go. Full details describing the chairs chosen and how you can order one, are given here, and a form to place an order here.
