Our beautiful old building is a medieval church, dating from the 13th century, and has a very intimate atmosphere. It's the only church in Norwich with a thatched roof. For most services, however, we use the new church extension - a lovely open and airy space, which seats around 220 people. The contrast between these settings enables us to accommodate worship to suit a wide variety of tastes.

passionate about the Bible, and he loves meeting people.

Sunday Worship at St Andrew's:
|8 a.m. - Traditional service of Holy Communion, using the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, in the beautiful calm atmosphere of our old building. This is a 45 minute service, with a short sermon but with no music.|
|10 a.m. - The first Sunday is an All Age Worship service and the third Sunday is Morning Worship. Services of Holy Communion take place on the second, fourth and fifth Sundays of the month making creative use of the modern Common Worship service resources. There is preaching from the Bible, and the music is led by organ, piano and our flexible choir!|
3-5 p.m. - Messy Church - 'A service with a creative edge'
Specially for families with children (of all ages) - a time for families to come together, to learn and worship through craft, music, prayer and eating together (with afternoon tea).
Please CLICK HERE for dates and further information.
|6.30 p.m. on the first Sunday of the month - an informal evening service, with contemporary worship music usually led by a small band, lively Bible-based teaching, time for prayer and time to listen to God.|
|Our Sunday School groups, for children and young people aged 3-14 years, meet every Sunday during term time. The children and young people all start in church and then move to activities in St Andrew's church hall, next door to the church, except when there is a Family Service (on the first Sunday of the month) when all worship together in church.|
