Welcome to St. Andrew's Church - Bicknacre

St.Andrew's Church

St Andrew’s is the Church of England church for Bicknacre, a village near Chelmsford in Essex, UK.

We are a small yet lively church community and our services informal and relaxed where you can be sure of a warm welcome.

As a Parish Church we have close ties with the local community, Priory Primary School, the Congregational Church in Woodham Ferrers and our sister church of St Mary's in Woodham Ferrers.

In addition to our Sunday services there are various groups that meet throughout the week. Details for them can be found on the Groups page.

Our main service on Sunday morning is at 9.30am and the monthly pattern can be seen on the right hand side of this home page. Please note that on the fifth Sunday of the month we have a Joint Service with St Mary's congregation and the Congregational Church.
