Thank you for finding your way to the St. Andrew's Church website and we hope you will find the information and inspiration you are looking for!
Our church is a beautiful, historic building that has served the village over many generations. It is open in daylight hours for you to find a space for peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
Or you may like to attend one of our services, if so, please check out the Services & Events page on this website for details. You can find details of all services in the Benefice here.
Everyone is welcome, whether you would consider yourself as a person of faith, a person of ‘no faith’ or a person who is ‘just looking’.
No matter who you are, we hope you will join us on our journey of faith and make many new friends along the way ...
If you would like to find out more about being a Christian go to the Church of England website at www.cofe.anglican.org/faith/christian/
This is the time of year when we ask everyone who is a member of the 100 club to kindly renew their membership. We have one more draw this year for £30, £20 and £10 at the end of November and then , when everyone has paid their £10 (yes, STILL only £10!) we will have the big Christmas draw when one lucky person wins £50. Just in time for Christmas.
Ten pounds is not a huge sum of money but when we all join together in the 100 club, it becomes a significant fundraiser for the care and upkeep of St Andrews Church. We want to have our church well maintained and heated for all the community to use and you may have noticed the scaffolding around the church which has been necessary for ongoing roofing repairs. Maintaining our lovely historic church is an continuing challenge for our small congregation and I would ask you all to please remember to renew your membership of the 100 club or buy a number if you haven't done so in the past. You could be lucky and have a little windfall!
There will be a list in the village shop where you can renew your membership or simply pop £10 in an envelope with your name and telephone number and drop it into the village shop. Alternatively, drop it through my letterbox at
"ASHLEIGH", COWSHIP LANE, CROMHALL.
Grateful thanks to everyone who has supported St Andrews in 2015 and to everyone taking out membership of the 100 club for 2016. Good luck to you all!

Benefice Prayer during the Vacancy
God of all grace, wisdom and power, we lift our hearts to you in prayer as we await the appointment of a new priest-in-charge to serve your Church in this benefice. Make us sensitive and responsive to the guidance of your Holy Spirit: bring all our plans and decisions into conformity with your perfect will; and use all our endeavours for the furtherance of the gospel, the good news of your people, and the glory of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. AMEN
