We believe that God’s love is for everyone, no matter who we are or what we have done.
We are told by those who visit that we’re open, positive, supportive, and somewhere that many in Roundhay – members or not – call “my church”.
St Andrew’s activities and spiritual life attract over a thousand people each week. We are a strong and growing presence in the area, with a real passion for sharing God’s love with all people.
Come and visit. Whether it be for worship on a Sunday morning, Badminton on a Thursday, or Parents and Toddlers on a Friday, you are sure of a warm welcome at St Andrew’s, Roundhay.
Wishing you every blessing.
May all who make their way to St Andrew’s sense God’s presence and find peace and purpose for life.
A thought during these difficult times
“And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.”

What is Church?
From the early days Christians gathered together to worship God, support one another in fellowship and share the love of God. These gatherings became known as ‘church’, from the Greek meaning ‘assembly’. Church is often thought of as a building, but for Christians the more significant understanding is a congregation of God’s people with Christ’s presence in the midst.
There are three main branches of the Christian Church, Roman Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant. The United Reformed Church (URC) is a member of the worldwide Reformed Church, which is a part of the Protestant branch.
