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.
During the pandemic, a written service in pdf format has been available online Every Sunday. At 10.00am, we join together by Zoom as a benefice to use this service for worship. When there is no live service in St Andrew’s, this is 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.
