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. July 17th. Father Joseph Whelan writes:'Nothing is more practical than finding God,than falling in Love in a quite absolute, final way.
What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination,will affect everything.
It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read,whom you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything.' Revd. Joan Whyman.
