Welcome to St. Andrew's Church
St. Andrew's is the Parish Church for Alwalton, Orton Wistow Orton Southgate and Orton Northgate on the western edge of Peterborough. Situated in Church Street, Alwalton, just past the Cuckoo pub, a church building has been on this site since the 12th century.
Whilst we rejoice in the rich hertiage of prayer and worship that we have inherrited, St. Andrew's also strives to contemporary in our services which overflows into our teaching as well as the youth and children's work that exists here. We meet regularly at 10.30am on Sunday mornings and many of the midweek Partnership events take place here too.
St. Andrew's is a warm, light and comfortable church, with modern seating a sound system which also contains a loop for those who are hard of hearing and is efficiently heated by our gas boiler.
On the first Sunday in the month we meet together for an informal Family Service with a focus on all ages. Our second and third Sunday services are communion based following the Anglican order of Common Worship which was published in 2000.
On a fourth Sunday we have a Morning Service and if there is a fifth Sunday in the month we meet together for a Praise service where we focus in on one of the mission agencies which we support as a church.
Using Song Pro our music ranges from traditional hymns on the organ to modern choruses on guitar and because we believe that it is important for all members of the congregation to engage with the passage which the speaker is guiding us through, we also have church Bibles .
St. Andrew's fellowship also host the monthly Power Point prayer meeting, Tiddlywinks preschool group, whizzkids and Pathfinders for children and young people as well as several Fellowship Groups. We love members to be involved in services and service ministries, both adults and children and we pray for the Holy Spirit to grow our love for God as well as one another.
St. Andrew's has run Alpha, Christianity Explored 40 Days of Purpose and the "Just Walk Across the Room" course from Willow Creek.
