Welcome to st andrew's church
In the midst of the extraordinary times the new lockdown restrictions state that places of worship must close, except for private prayer. So we will only be able to offer services online. Let us all pray that these measures are effective and that the lockdown is able to be lifted at the beginning of December as planned.
St Andrew’s Church is open for Private Prayer on Wednesdays 9.30 – 10.30am. Due to the Coronavirus, considerable restrictions remain in place and in light of this 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.
