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.
The present Vicar is Revd. James Warren

THY KINGDOM COME ; SATURDAY 19TH MAY.
LOOK…. and be curious
WAIT…..with prayerful expectation
Come Holy Spirit…Thy Kingdom Come.
READ….the text with an open mind.
“I wait for the Lord, my soul waits,
And in his Word I hope.
My soul waits for the Lord
More than those who watch for the morning
More than those who watch for the morning. (Psalm 130: 5-6.)”
LISTEN ….for a word with a willing heart.
Oh God of the new day
Your Son Jesus Christ knew what I meant
To watch and wait through the dark silence of the longest night.
Teach us how to wait with heaven’s indrawn breath;
On tiptoe with anticipation
Until all of our being reaches towards you.
All our desire is for you,
And all our onward movement is for your Kingdom coming. Amen.
Revd. Joan Whyman.
