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 youth worker.
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.
As lockdown after the coronavirus outbreak eased, we decided to hold two services in church each month, on the first and third Sundays starting on 2nd August. During November, live services have been again suspended, in line with the rules for lockdown. Every Sunday, a written service in pdf format is available online. When there is no live service in St Andrew’s, this is posted on the website. We are most grateful to Joe Knight and the team of clergy and readers for producing these.
As of 13th September, the church is open for private prayer on Sundays, 10.00 – 16.00. No prior notification is required.
