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. November 21st. It is a moving experience to gaze through the window behind the altar of the Church of Dominus Flevit on the Mount of Olives from where the Temple Mount and Jerusalem can be seen. The church is in the shape of a tear for it is here that Jesus wept as he foresaw the destruction of the city and the Temple. (Luke 19:41-44) Jesus was weeping, too, over the hard and ungrateful hearts of Israel. Does he continue to weep for us and our generation, too? Revd. Joan Whyman.
