Annual BBQ

Join in the fun day which includes a bbq, a raffle, brick-a-brack stalls, great music and a bouncy castle.

Open Church

Pop in to visit the church, do a self-guided tour or Children’s Trail, light a candle, or enjoy the beauty and peace. Sundays from 9.45am-12.45pm.


We have regular visits from local schools to explore the heritage, architecture, art and faith. A member of clergy can give a guided tour, host a Q&A, demonstrate a church service such as a baptism, wedding or Holy Communion. Or classes with their teacher are welcome to explore the church, the murals and stained glass windows using the Children’s Trail. Contact us if you would like to organise a class visit.

Walking Tours

Twice a year a local historian and tour guide Sean Gubbins brings walking tours to St Andrew’s. To discover when the next tour is, check out the walking tour website.

Children’s guide

A dedicated Children’s Trail is available so that children can discover the heritage and art in St Andrew’s. Pop in during Open Church or organise a school visit.
