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. September 13th. 'Be still, and know that I am God.' Psalm 46:10a. The words are familiar; we can say them, we know the words of a worship song echoing that theme, but how often do we carve out time to be with God in stillness? Early tomorrow morning, I will be setting off to St.Beuno's Retreat Centre in North Wales for an 8 day silent retreat so there will be no 'diary' until September 24th. God bless, dear diary friends. Revd. Joan Whyman.
