Founded in 1905 (May 10th), the original church building (listed, Grade 2) now serves as the church hall. By 1911. plans were afoot for an new church building to serve the thriving local community.

Put on hold as a result of the First World War, they were finally completed in the form of the present building in which was consecrated by the Bishop of London in 1926. Remarkably the new church and a new vicarage were funded totally by the parish, leaving it free of debt. A particular feature of the church is its leaded glazing with fine stained glass images.

The building gives us generous space for flexible use. We are blessed with a new concert-standard digital organ and the lovely acoustics enable us to hold regular concerts. We enjoy holding winter and summer fairs, children's fun days, meals, art exhibitions, and other events inside the church.


We serve one of the most ethnically and socially mixed neighbourhoods of London. We run a number of cultural and community events as well as providing facilities for groups and classes across a wide variety of interests. At St. Andrew's we reach out both through Christian services, and through community facilities into that diversity.

We have strong links with the local primary school in Sudbury, and we have a thriving parent and toddler group Daniel's Den. During the week the church hall is used by Melrose day nursery, with an OFSTED rating Outstanding as well as Rainbows and  Brownies groups. The scout hut is used by many clubs, TNG for primary children a Whist Drive every Saturday and throughout the week various classes including Aikido and Irish Dancing and tutoring.

Our community development plan includes the fund raising to provide better and expanded facilities to serve the community and we are one of the three churches which run the local neighbourhood centre providing day care and social contact for 120 local elderly people.

We are proud to be a founder member of SWAY (Sudbury, Wembley, Alperton & Youth) project to provide additional youth oriented services within our community, and house the youth support worker at St Andrews.

We are here for all local people, whether you are a regular church-goer or not. It is our privilege to conduct baptisms, wedding and funerals and provide pastoral care for local residents.

Our Values

Every year we pray about the way that God wishes our church to go. We have tried to listen to God's prompting and we shall continue to listen - to God and to each other.


When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt; I am the LORD your God. - Leviticus 19:33-34

At St. Andrew's we welcome all people who come to seek God, whatever their background.


And whoever would be first among you must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. - Mark 10:44-45

As the parish church of Sudbury we exist for every local resident.


So put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander, Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow into salvation. If indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good. - Peter 2:1-3

We are committed to encouraging each person on their journey towards Christ and recognise that people grow and are nourished in different ways.
