Our vision for the future of St Andrew by the Wardrobe

St Andrew by the Wardrobe is at a crossroads. It is well loved and valued by City organisations who fill it on significant occasions during the year. Yet, with only a very small regular congregation, this intermittent activity is not enough to sustain it.  St Andrew’s needs a new year-round use that will bring the church back to full life and ensure its future viability. Phase one of our refurbishment project is currently underway and we closed on Wednesday 15 December. We hope to reopen after summer 2022.

As work in Phase One nears completion St Andrew by the Wardrobe has featured as a case study by the Church of England on the day it launches the National Net Zero Carbon Pathway. Take a look:

St Andrew by the Wardrobe becomes carbon neutral.



Fr Luke and Archbishop Angaelos from the Egyptian Coptic Orthodox Church inspect the building work.

Please see here for more details.



St Andrew by the Wardrobe is party of City Catholics.

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.
