St Andrew's Church

COVID 19
We are pleased to open St Andrew's for visitors and private prayer between 11am and 3pm on Sundays for the rest of December. Hopefully we will be able to open the church 7 days a week in the not too distant future.

Our next service is at 11am on Christmas Day. You will always find a very warm welcome and we try and make sure that those who live in Thursford, those who join us from surrounding villages and visitors to the area are all made to feel at home.

For a number of years the church has built up its reputation as a community hub for the village. Up until the Covid pandemic, regular concerts and other events were held in the church and well attended by residents in Thursford and the villages around. During the summer of 2020, a new toilet and kitchenette were installed in the church, ready to make the 'hub' even more welcoming, when concerts, meetings and events are allowed to start again.

Services
Services are generally held on the second sunday of every month at 11am, the exception being our Christmas day service, held at 11am on the day. Subject to COVID restrictions, Eucharist Services are planned for:

Visitors
The successful combination of medieval and victorian styles throughout the building, make St Andrew's unique. It's victorian stained glass is particularly glorious, pronounced by Pevsner as "one of the most beautiful of its time in England". Currently the church is open for visitors and private prayer between 11am and 3pm on Sundays for the rest of December. Hopefully we will be able to open the church 7 days a week in the not too distant future.
