As you will all know very sadly the church is closed.
It is with great sadness that we have had to close the doors of our churches.
Please do remember that ‘The Church’ is the people and not the building and you can pray wherever you are.
We ask that we all pause together at midday and offer a short prayer to God for every aspect of this global situation, sometimes this is all we can do. We, in the church, will continue to pray for everyone.
If you would like pastoral care, or simply conversation, please do contact Reverend Annie Church on 01626 873173 or email@example.com and she will be very happy to speak with you.
God bless you – stay safe.

COVID 19 RESTRICTIONS
As you will be aware all services have been suspended however St Andrew’s will still be open by day.
Please see the advice below from the Diocese of Exeter.
Although we cannot hold public services for the time being, churches need to remain open. Indeed, we anticipate that people will want to use them, to light a candle, to pray for loved ones. The Cathedral will be open without charge from 10am to 4pm every day. People are free to meet to pray inside our churches, provided they observe public health guidelines: https://www.churchofengland.org/more/media-centre/news/archbishops-call-church-england-become-radically-different-public-worship

Thanks to Susan and the team who decorated St Andrew’s so beautifully for Remembrance SundayThere is a new Commonwealth War Graves Commission headstone in the Churchyard for Harold Harry Brimilcombe whose grave had become unmarked following the family headstone falling over. We are very pleased to see this happen and thank the CWGC for undertaking this work. There are 3 World War 1 graves in our Churchyard.
