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. October 19th. How often in our busy lives do we pause to reflect on the wonders of God's creation? Watching a programme about Canada, I was amazed to learn how Wood Frogs remain totally frozen for 6 months of the year. As they thaw out they take a first breath and very soon are leaping about as only frogs can. How amazing is that? 'Make a joyful noise to God all the earth, sing the glory of his name.' Psalm 66:1
