Welcome to St Andrew’s

St Andrew’s is a traditional Parish Church situated in the heart of the village of Longton in Lancashire.

We have a friendly Church community, welcoming both regular worshipers and visitors. The pattern of services aims to blend the traditional and more contemporary and events are arranged in both the Church and Church Hall to encompass the wider village community.

If you live near or just passing, please come and pay us a visit.

You will be made most welcome.

Revision of Electoral Roll 2023

The Electoral Roll is now open, so please check and amend your details, for example, if you have changed address. There is a sheet at the back of the church until 12th April. If you have questions please contact our PCC Secretary Judith Rimmer. 

The Electoral Roll is a really important document which functions as a membership list. It is important to be on the list especially if you attend the church but live outside the parish. It ensures that you have certain rights within the life of St Andrew’s.

Anyone who wishes to be added to the Roll can download and complete this form and return it to Judith Rimmer by 16th April either by email to pcc-secretary@longtonstandrew.org or hand it to her in Church.

Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. ‘Come, follow me,’ Jesus said, ‘and I will send you out to fish for people.’ At once they left their nets and followed him.
