We are a lively group of Christians from varied backgrounds who worship in the small village of Awre, on the banks of the River Severn. Our congregation ranges from 0 to 90, and our services vary in their levels of formality.
We are a part of the larger benefice of Newnham with Blakeney and Awre, a group of three Anglican parishes which share a vicar, curate and lay reader.
We are a busy parish, and there is a lot to get involved with: please visit our Facebook page to discover what is going on. Sunday, 11th July will be our Celebration Sunday for 2021. This is the Sunday when we look at the everything that has gone on during the last year, and elect our church officers for the forthcoming year. The review will take place in the context of a service of Holy Communion, starting at 11.00am. Please come along and hear what we’ve been up to!
During the pandemic, a written service in pdf format was been available online Every Sunday. At 10.00am, we joined together by Zoom as a benefice to use this service for worship. When there was no live service in St Andrew’s, this was posted on this website. We are most grateful to Joe Knight and the team of clergy and readers for producing these. On Sunday, 28th March (Palm Sunday) Rachel, Bishop of Gloucester joined us.
However, as restrictions ease, we have decided to hold live services in St Andrew’s every week from 2nd May. This will, of course, be subject to review. Our normal pattern of services can be found here.
As of 13th September 2020, the church is open for private prayer on Sundays, 10.00 – 16.00. No prior notification is required.
