St Andrew's is the parish church for everyone in Halstead.
Whether you come to worship here regularly, just once or twice a year, or even if you haven't yet been here - this is your church. We are here to mark the important stages of life with you, through baptisms, weddings and funerals; to help you find out more about the Christian faith, and grow as a Christian; to serve our community through showing God's love in practical ways; and to provide a focus for worshipping God together. We work closely with the other churches in Halstead, and with other Anglican churches in the villages nearby that make up the Halstead Area Team.
As we join with others in trying to reduce the risk of transmission of the Coronavirus, our church building is closed for most of the week, and the parish office is closed.
Our first service back in the church building will be on Sunday 6 September at 10.30am, and each Sunday after that. Covid-secure measures will be in place for all our safety, according to government and Church of England guidance. Please wear a mask, follow the instructions given by wardens and others, and maintain social distancing. Despite the constraints, it will be wonderful to be together in our building again!
Live streamed prayers and services for our team of churches are also continuing, along with other options as shown below.
