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 can't gather for our usual civic remembrance service on Sunday 8 November, there will instead be a pre-recorded service from Churches Together in Halstead. It will be available from 3pm at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TcI3nDRTzvE&feature=emb_logo .
A wreath laying ceremony organised by the local branch of the Royal British Legion will take place at both of the town's war memorials. Attendance is by invitation only due to the need to limit numbers.
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.
During the rest of November, as we can't meet together in our building to worship, you might like to make use of one of the following options:
8.10am: Sunday Worship, BBC Radio 4
9am: The Church of England national service on Facebook and YouTube
10am: Communion service from The Three Colnes on Zoom and Facebook
11am: Service from Gosfield on Zoom
1.15pm: Songs of Praise, BBC One
The church will also be open on Thursday mornings, 10am to 12.30pm, for private prayer.
