What should I expect when I visit the church?

You will receive a very warm welcome particularly from our welcome team who will be able to answer your questions. They will give you a service sheet and anything else you need for the service. Our different types of services are explained here.

I am not a Christian, am I welcome?

Absolutely! We welcome everyone without any obligation on their part, and would love to meet you. We will help you explore Christianity if that is what you want.

Where can I park?

There is no car park at the church, but plenty of on-street parking in Mingle Lane, Gog Magog Way and neighbouring streets. Cycling and walking are also good options if you are able - we have a bike rack and plenty of room for pushchairs and scooters.

Is there a dress code?

No! Please just be yourself and come dressed as you like.

Is there a toilet?

There is, in the vestry, and it may be used at any time before, during or after the service. There are also toilets in the Johnson Hall and Verger’s Cottage for the groups taking place there. 

Is the church accessible for wheelchair users?

The church is, but unfortunately currently the toilet is not.

I have visual or hearing impairment. Can I take part?

Yes! We have large print versions of books and service sheets, and we have a loop system.

Will I have to pay?

No! We do not pass round a collection during services, and whether you make a donation or not is entirely up to you. You are welcome at St Andrew's either way, though we do appreciate all donations, large and small.

If you do want to make a donation there is a collection plate out during services, usually on a table near the church entrance, and a card reader/mobile payment box. For UK tax payers, Gift Aid envelopes are available near to the collection plate. Alternatively, and available at any time, a wall safe is on the right as you enter the church. Regular members can give by direct debit using the Parish Giving Scheme. We can also take payments by card or phone.

You can also make a donation online here.

Will I have to join in?

Not at all, but we hope you will want to! You are free to simply observe or participate as much as feels comfortable for you.

What do we offer for babies, children and young people?

They are always very welcome at St Andrew’s.

Click through for more information about our groups for children and young people. We have a wonderful youth worker called Zoe.

If any babies or young children need entertaining at any point during a service there are toys, books and colouring materials in the Lady Chapel and they are welcome to play there at any time during services.

Will my children be safe in their groups?

Yes! St Andrew's adheres strictly to the Diocese of Ely and Church of England safeguarding procedures. Our Parish Safeguarding Officer is Rob Needle, whose contact details are here.

What happens after a service?

Some people just want to leave quietly, and that's fine. Mostly people stay and chat, but there is no pressure to do so. Tea, coffee and biscuits are generally served after the 10.30 am service where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions. We often celebrate birthdays and other events, and everyone is welcome to stay and join in.

What is the church's attitude to women?

St Andrew’s has supported the ministry women for a long time. Women and men are included equally in all areas of St Andrew's ministry and church life.

What is the church's attitude to LGBTQ+ people?

LBGTQ+ people are welcomed, accepted, included and safe here. The Church Council decided in 2022 that it would like to offer services of blessing for those same sex couples who are already in civil partnerships or married, and weddings for same sex couples, as soon as this is allowed by the Church of England.

Who works for the church?

Lots of volunteers and a few paid staff. If you want to know more about the church leaders, check out our Who's Who page.
