St. Andrew's Church dates from 1870 and became a parish in its own right in the early 1980s when the completely independent Parish of "Shottery St. Andrew" and a Vicar with traditional "Parsons Freehold" was established.
In 1997 the Parish Centre was built to the rear of the church and at Easter 2005 the church building was re-ordered and physically extended.
St. Andrew’s Church is pleased to announce that Rev. Craig Groocock will become the next Vicar of our parish. Craig is currently the Priest in charge of Harbury and Ladbrok parishes near Leamington Spa, having been there for the past 11 years. (17th February)

Diary of a Cross in my Pocket. February 21st. My heart is lifted by the swathes of snowdrops everywhere. Poet, Kate Mcllhagga writes of them:'Into a dark world a snowdrop comes, a benison of hope and peace, carrying within it a green heart, symbol of God's renewing love. Come to inhabit our darkness, Lord Christ, for dark and light are alike to you. May nature's white candles of hope remind us of your birth and light our journey through Lent and beyond.'
Revd. Joan Whyman
