Welcome, our building is open again for Church services.
Welcome to St Andrews! We are an evangelical church community of all ages who are at the heart of our community here in Over Hulton. We are part of Deane Parish and the wider LAMB Mission Partnership.
Our Church Services have resumed. Sadly our Sunday 9am service will not resume just yet. If you wish to attend our family 10.45am service, you do need to book your place, as our seating capacity at St Andrews has been reduced to ensure social distancing. We recommend you read our frequently asked questions if you plan to attend any of our Church services.
There is no need to book for 6.30pm or our Thursday morning services.
Those in vulnerable categories are recommended not to come to Church at the moment, and if you have any sign of symptoms of COVID-19 you should not enter the Church building.
For those unable to attend our Church services a pre recorded service will be uploaded every Sunday on our YouTube channel (St Bede’s and St Andrews Church) so you can still worship with us. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Thank you for visiting our website, if you have any questions feel free to contact us.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to wear a face mask?
Yes, under the current restrictions anybody who enters the church building must wear a face mask unless they have an underlining health condition. Wearing of gloves is not recommended as we would encourage you to regularly use the hand sanitiser which is readily available in the church building.
What will the services be like?
There are some changes to how we normally worship in Church. There will be no hymns or singing and you will need to remain in your seats during the service. Everything you need for the service will be on the screens. However there are many things that will be the same; we will study God’s word together, we will pray and we will share communion together.
What is happening regarding church attendance for school admission?
All Church Schools in our Diocese have now made the decision that current church attendance will not be taken into account for church school admissions until further notice during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Church attendance will only be taken into account up to and including 15th March, 2020. Therefore currently there is no need to bring forms to church each week to be signed.
What about ‘Test and Trace’?
As a Church we will keep a record of attendees for each service for a period of 21 days so that we can inform you or pass on your details to NHS Test and Trace if we have a positive case of COVID-19 who has attended church. If you are not on the electoral roll we may ask you for a contact number.
Obviously if you have attended church and you later test positive for COVID-19 you need to contact Vinny or the Church Wardens immediately.
