Worship at St. Andrew’s
Worship is central to our life as a community. We worship in the Catholic tradition of the Church of England. Vestments are worn; incense, bells and candles enrich our experience of Christ's presence at the Mass.
The ministry team includes the vicar, one retired priest, four lay readers, and rotas of sacristans, servers, welcomers, and people who read lessons and prepare and lead the intercessions. There are several members of the congregation are licensed by the Bishop to administer the chalice.
