Services at St Andrew by the Wardrobe


In light of the Government guidance relating to COVID-19 (corona virus) the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended.

There will be no public worship services taking place at St Andrew by the Wardrobe until further notice.

Our Rector, Fr Luke, lives within the curtilage of the Church and is able to enter to say private prayers and to occasionally livestream services.

Please email any prayer requests to administrator@standrewbythewardrobe.org

Watch our service from the 5th Sunday of Lent, Passion Sunday, on 29 March 2020. Take a look at our Services Page for details of any future livestream services. 

Please stay at home and stay safe.


Building bridges to serve and renew our city

Thank you for your interest in this beautiful Wren church where the passing generations have worshipped God and sought his blessing. We warmly welcome those who come to join us for worship or who seek a quiet place in the midst of the City’s bustle. We also welcome students and tourists who come to visit our memorial to William Shakespeare. We invite you to join with us in building and sustaining the Christian life and witness of this historic part of the City of London. Visit us if you can.

What is that bell?

Have you ever wondered why our church bells ring in such a strange way? Well, Fr Luke Miller has the answer. Click here to find out more.

As the weather becomes colder and temperatures plunge below zero at night, join us in praying for those in our capital who have no shelter.

God of compassion,
your love for humanity was revealed in Jesus, whose earthly life began in the poverty of a stable and ended in the pain and isolation of the cross:
we hold before you those who are homeless and cold especially in this bitter weather.
Draw near and comfort them in spirit
and bless those who work to provide them
with shelter, food and friendship.
We ask this in Jesus’ name.
