Our regular worship starts at 11am, with Holy Communion celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. We have a mix of services, with some specially geared for all ages and others where children and younger people leave early in the service to have their own activities in “SAY” – St. Andrew’s Youth – that takes places in one of the halls attached to the church. Services typically last between 50 minutes and an hour, with Holy Communion usually running a little longer.

We also have a shorter service of Holy Communion on the third Sunday of the month starting at 9:30am, lasting about 30 minutes and a prayer group on the second Sunday of the month starting at 10:15am and lasting 15-20 minutes.

Come and Praise logoA time of lively, family friendly, informal worship with contemporary music and prayer.

2nd Sunday of each month from 09:30 to 10:00.

We appreciate that not everyone can or feels able to attend Sunday services. We therefore have a special afternoon service on the 2nd Monday of each month from 2pm, led by our Worship Group, which includes tea afterwards.

If you would be interested in joining us and especially if you need help in getting to the church to attend, please get in touch.

There is a short service held in the foyer of the church at 10:00am each Wednesday morning, lead by a church member. These short services typically involve prayer, readings, a hymn and a short reflection.

After prayers please do stay for the Open Door Coffee Morning from 10.30am – ~12pm.

Messy Church logoSpecially geared for children and young people, Messy Church mixes art and craft activities with music, readings, prayer and talks, followed by a party tea.

Sessions start at 3:30pm and run for about 2 hours.

Parents and guardians are required to supervise their children at all times.

There is no charge, though donations are gratefully accepted to cover the cost of materials and food.

Through the year we hold a variety of other services and faith events, including special services through Lent and Easter, and Advent and Christmas, both at St. Andrew’s and in conjunction with other churches in Monkseaton and Whitley Bay.

These will be advertised on the website, social media, in the church foyer, the church magazine, and often via flyers and cards posted to houses in the area.
