Welcome to St Andrew’s Parish Church, Chelmsford.
An Anglican church within the Diocese of Chelmsford.
St Andrew’s is the parish church serving the Chignal Road, Melbourne and Newlands Spring areas of North West of Chelmsford. It is a Church at the Heart of the Community with the Community on its Heart.
Whilst we cannot meet together in church for public worship we invite you to say a short service at 10.00 am in your home as a way of worshipping together. Please go to our Sunday Worship page to download the service and a weekly reflection.
Also, please visit our Facebook page for more regular updates and resources for prayer and worship.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Update - Private Prayer
We are pleased to let you know that the church will be open for private personal prayer each Sunday from 11.00 a.m. – 12.30 p.m.
We have been working hard to try and ensure our church building is clean and safe. Physical distancing and hygiene guidelines will be observed at all times. Hand sanitiser is always available to use during and after your visit.
We hope that you find comfort and peace in this quiet place.
In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice. Sadly but understandably this means we will not be holding our usual service on Sundays.
St Andrew's will continue to follow Church of England guidance and policy during the current situation, details of which can be found by following this link.
A prayer for all those affeted by coronavirus
Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
