“Almighty God, who has given us grace at this time with one accord to make our common supplications unto thee; and dost promise, that when two or three are gathered together in thy Name thou wilt grant their requests: Fulfil now, O Lord, the desires and petitions of thy servants, as may be most expedient for them; granting us in this world knowledge of thy truth, and in the world to come life everlasting.    Amen”

Our Services 2019

Our worship is traditional, using the shortened version of the Book of Common Prayer. Our Service of Morning Prayer is sung and Holy Communion is usually celebrated every other Sunday. Sunday services are at 9.30 am, unless shown otherwise.  There is a joint Benefice service for all the four churches in the Wrentham Benefice held at one or other of the churches in rotation whenever there is a fifth Sunday in the month, usually at 11.00am.  A Benefice service follows the tradition of the host Church.  Forthcoming services at St Andrew's are:

On Saturday 2nd March, Yalda Davis (Cello) and James Recknell (Keyboard) gave a very entertaining concert in St Andrew's Church. The concert included music by Mendelssohn, Beethoven, Vaughan Williams, all played with wonderful charm and generosity of spirit. Yalda would like to return in the Summer to give another concert, this time in the ruins of St Andrews, and we very much look forward to that. She has pledged to play in all of Suffolk's ancient Churches and you can follow her progress on her blog:
