Welcome to st andrew's church
Sadly, with the new lockdown from 6 January, we have had to take the decision to close our building for the time being. We will keep the decision under constant review and re-open as soon as we can do so safely.
Our building may be closed, but our church community remains open and active, with a Sunday service online, Compline via Zoom and regular reflections, available via our website and Facebook page. Please do engage with us online if you can.
If you need assistance, help or guidance in these difficult times, please do not hesitate to contact any of the clergy or our Parish Office via our contact form or on 01895 258766.
With the ending of the lockdown at the beginning of December, we are delighted to be able to welcome you back into St Andrew’s. Our services are listed below.
We are now in Tier 4, so we must continue to abide by restrictions. Please remember that you must wear a face covering, unless you are exempt. You must keep 2 metres apart and not mingle indoors with anyone you do not live with or who is not in your support bubble.
The congregation is not allowed to sing in church, so our carol service will be a Candlelit Celebration of Music and Readings for Christmas, at 6pm on Sunday 20 December.
You do not need to book in advance for any of our services. Contact details will be collected when you arrive for Track & Trace.
For those who are not able to return in person, we continue to offer an online Sunday service and our digital resources, including a video library, remain in place. Please do visit our (open) Face Book page which has daily posts and a weekly reflection.
Welcome from the Rector
Welcome to St Andrew’s, Uxbridge. Thank you for visiting our website. We seek to be a loving and welcoming community, making a positive contribution to Uxbridge. Inspired by the example of Jesus and influenced by the vibrant life of God’s Spirit, we enjoy an enquiring approach to faith, which means we are able to live with questions rather than believing we have all the answers. Do come and join us on the journey.

Despite the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, St Andrew’s has worked hard throughout lockdown to provide free weekly digital services for everyone, whilst offering Pastoral support and prayers online for all those in need at this time.
As restrictions eased, we have continued to run our online Sunday services, as well as restarting limited services within the church. We have also we been able to continue to contribute to the important and much needed Youth Work in the Parish, whilst also trying to find ways to minister to all sectors of our local community and beyond. We will continue to look at how we can, in due course, safely re-open groups which support so many people in our community; the vulnerable, those facing financial hardship, children and young people, young parents, those struggling with bereavement, the elderly and those just in need of friendship and someone to lend an ear to chat to.
Although the renewed lockdown will put a brake on these activities, we will continue to prepare for when we can do more than what is possible online. In the meantime, we will do all that we can to support those in need using on-line resources.
But like so many churches charities, we have felt the economic impact of Covid-19. We receive no funding from government but rely purely upon donations. So if you feel able to support us and our work, please click on this link to Donate online. Alternatively, if you would like to consider making a regular donation, please contact the Parish Office at https://standrewsuxbridge.org/contact/ who can provide you with more information about how you can donate regularly towards the work of St. Andrew’s in Uxbridge.
Traditions & Values
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.”
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 encouraging 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.
