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.
We are a friendly bunch, and we'd love to meet you!
