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. February 15th. It’s been a strange week really, with a mixture of happy interludes, worrying days that have ultimately concluded well and in the middle of it all continuing phone difficulties which have created all sorts of problems. It has made me realise afresh just how much of our lives these days centres around the use of technology and our dependence upon it. Waking to a new day this morning, and wondering what it could surprise me with today, the words, ‘This is the day that the Lord has made. We will be glad and rejoice in it,’ (Psalm 118:24) leapt to my mind and I am going to try to stop fretting and focus on that thought.
