What We Believe

God the Father has shown us Himself in his Son, Jesus Christ – Who we know as our Saviour and our Friend.

Do come to St. Andrew’s and learn more of Him with us!

St Andrew’s exists …

– to Serve God, through our Lord Jesus Christ
– to learn and grow together
– to share our Joy in Christian Living with the wider world


The people of St. Andrew’s believe in a God who created all things and in Jesus Christ, God’s son, our Lord.

We believe that Jesus lived a life that can change ours and that he was so radical that he was crucified and died. Yet, Jesus rose again and lives in unity with God.

We believe in the power of the Holy Spirit to make all things new and in a universal church.

We believe in the power that comes from receiving forgiveness from sin – the ways in which we break relationship with God and other people.

We believe in eternal life.


We, the members of St. Andrew’s Church, as followers of Jesus Christ, individually and corporately, want to support the local community and each other:
