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.

Diary of a Cross in my Pocket. August 23rd. However many times I try to convince myself to the contrary, I am constantly taken in by the belief that unless life if filled with unending work and busyness I can't possibly be doing God's will. A product of my upbringing and the voice from childhood in my inner ear that whispers, 'Get a book in your fingers or something to do!' Dare I believe that God delights in laughter, beauty and pleasure, all of which are his gifts to us? Revd.Joan Whyman.
