Introduction to parish

St Andrew's church is a splendid mid-Edwardian building, a bit hard to find but as with anything that takes a little effort well worth it. Welcoming and rather small we find it easier than some churches to let people explore their gifts. Thus the choral setting is penned by the choir master and the vestments have been made by another member of the congregation. We describe ourselves as a "bespoke church". We are fortunate in our quality Sunday School and children are always allowed to be themselves in church on the Sundays when Sunday School doesn't meet, so try us any Sunday. The vicar is also the industrial chaplain in Merton and south west London which adds a different slant to what goes on!
