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.
We have sought to hold live services when it has been advisable to do so. Fortunately, this included a Christingle service, carol service and communion service over Christmas. However, when the Forest of Dean entered Tier 4, we decided to suspend services again. Every Sunday, a written service in pdf format is available online. At 11.00am, 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, will be joining us.
As of 13th September 2020, the church is open for private prayer on Sundays, 10.00 – 16.00. No prior notification is required. It is our intention to start live worship once again with services in St Andrew’s on Palm Sunday (28th March 2021) and Easter Day (4th April), both at 11.00
