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. January 28th. Yesterday, in the group with which I was working, we were asked to suggest the ways in which we picture God. Many suggestions were offered such as 'friend', 'majestic', 'shepherd'. I offered 'arms', for when troubled I imagine being embraced in his loving care, and 'ears', for he promises to listen to all our joys, sorrows, grumblings, fears and pleas for help. Lord, enfold us in your loving arms and listen as we pray. Revd.Joan Whyman.
