St Andrew's Church

Our church in Burton Overy is a humble medieval one, dedicated to St Andrew, consisting of a nave, a north aisle, a spacious chancel, and a tower in which there are three bells. There is a 15th century screen of richly carved oak and an old ironbound chest? The font is circular and plain. In 1220, this church was under the patronage of the abbey of St. Ebrulf at Urica in Normandy.

Saint Andrew's is open every day in the daytime all year round for visitors

St. Andrew's is available for Marriages, Christenings, Thanksgiving for a Child and Funerals.

St. Andrew's shares the Benefice with St. Cuthbert's Church in Great Glen and St Mary's Church in Carlton Curlieu

The Church Tower Repairs are now completed and paid for. The work and removal of scaffolding were completed on time. The only hitch we had was the scaffolding alarm going off on a Saturday evening, which meant the contractors had to come over from Nottingham - even Nick Jones could not stop it from ringing!

The District Church Council are now putting their minds to the next projects – resurfacing the church path, kitchen, toilet and grab handles in the porch to improve access. Our architect is at present drawing up plans and estimates.

Children's Choir Well done to our young (and some very young) singers who led us at the Palm Sunday service in singing 'We have a king who rides a donkey'.`

Junior Tennis starts again for the summer on Wednesday, 3rd May at 5.00pm at The Springs, Carlton Lane, Burton Overy.

Any queries 0116-259-2440.

The sparklers picture

Sparklers (Monday 9.30 at the Methodist Church Hall) and Toddler Café Wednesday 10.00 at St Cuthbert's) are very popular with young families. We sing songs, have a bible story, say prayers, play and drink coffee! Spread the word!
