St Andrew

Welcome to St Andrew's Uxbridge

Welcome to the St. Andrew's Church website! We hope that you enjoy your visit.

St Andrew’s is a warm-hearted Church that welcomes and ministers to all ages and has a special ministry to children and young families.

We're a lively 'modern catholic' church within the Church of England - rejoicing in God's love and open to the gentle renewing grace of the Holy Spirit. This means that we have a passion for worship and for meeting with Jesus as he comes to us through scripture and in and through the sacraments.

The Eucharist is at the heart of our community life. We do things properly but in a relaxed and modern style. Our mission is "to follow Our Lord's teaching to love God and to love our neighbours as we would love ourselves. We express this by worshipping God, seeking wholeness of life and by witnessing to our faith."

We have two services on a Sunday morning: a quiet 8am Eucharist with short sermon and then, a little later, our main Family Eucharist which starts at 10am. This livelier modern service (with incense) always has a good combination of well established hymns and modern Christian songs - all happily accompanied by the choir and the organ or electric piano. On the second Sunday of the month this 10am service becomes our 'All Age Mass', a more informal and child friendly mass. Normally (in term time) our Junior Church meets alongside our 10am Eucharist but on an All Age Mass Sunday our children stay with us throughout the service and our very own church orchestra usually accompanies our singing.

On the first Sunday evening of every month we hold the very beautiful and prayerful service of Compline at 7pm in the Church's Holy Spirit chapel.

The Holy Spirit chapel is also the room in which we say Morning Prayer every weekday morning at 9am and also the venue for the Wednesday Morning 'Mass for Mums and Toddlers'. This very informal service starts at 9.30am and it follows free tea and toast served from 9am in the coffee area in the church hall.

One of the things that you will notice about St Andrew's is that we have a strong catholic sense of belonging and serving. This includes encouragig both young and old to become involved in all aspects of our worship and liturgical service but also to be ministers of grace in the places where they live and work in everyday life.

None of us are perfect but come and join us anyway - we’d love to meet you! So, whether you’ve been a follower of Jesus all your life or whether you are someone who is searching and who wants to know more then we’d love to meet you.

You really are welcome to come, experience and join in all the good things that are happening here at St Andrew’s.
