St Andrew's, Hartburn

Tradition and Community

Hartburn St Andrew – described by John Grundy as a ‘Cathedral in miniature’, is a large and very beautiful Parish Church, with a wonderful acoustic.


Our Story

Its internal appearance reflects the Victorian/Edwardian taste for scraped off plaster and medieval-style fittings – including a magnificent reredos, choir stalls and Regimental banners donated by the then local landowner who had been the commander of these regiments. Building on that foundation the present PCC some ten years ago installed ground source underfloor heating and a modern kitchen/servery/disabled access loo. This has enabled the building to be used as a community hub, hosting a monthly lunch-club, Parish Council meetings etc as well as musical concerts.

Our style of services tends to mirror the above aspects of beauty, tradition and community.
Traditional Music is very important and we are blessed with a fine organist. Similarly, the liturgy is based on the traditional BCP  although beyond that (and the music) we are not ‘high church’.

Afterwards there is always coffee and biscuits and the chance to chat!

Here at Hartburn we are committed to serving our wider community through regular worship services and care to all our neighbours. We have a thriving Community Project that serves the locality with regular lunch clubs, film nights, musical events and much more!  Embracing its rich history, the church remains an open and welcoming place of rest and refuge for all people, locals and visitors alike!  You can find lots of detail about the history inside the church.
