We are the Anglican parish church here in

Countesthorpe, Leicestershire.

But St Andrew’s is much more than a church building – we are a community of people who want to celebrate God’s love revealed to us in his Son Jesus Christ and who want to grow in and be transformed by that love.  We care deeply about God, about each other and the community to which we belong.

St Andrews Church is a dynamic church that meets you right where you are. We are committed to a compelling and challenging presentation of God’s truth. Here you will find information about services and times, directions, what’s happening for children and young people and more.

Whether you are just curious about church and God or you are a dedicated follower of Christ,

you are welcome here.

The new building, The Bridge - Thank you!

The work on our new building, The Bridge has finally completed. We now have a new reception, toilets; which includes disabled access and baby changing facilities, plus brand new meeting space and a lovely kitchen. The garden is still under development to provide an outside space for reflection, peace and a place to 'just be' in our busy world.  We are passionate about using The Bridge to support those in our community, a place where lives can be transformed, a place of love and friendship as well as to offer encouragement to those in need. 

The building could not have been possible without the support and vision to reach others from the church family and others from our community.  We have also been very graciously blessed with grants from Blaby District Council, The Congregational & General Charitable Trust, Countesthorpe Parish Council, The Garfield Weston Foundation, The Florence Turner Trust, The Stuart Cosby Trust, The Co-operative Community Fund The Beatrice Laing Trust, Aviva Community Fund, The All Churches Trust, along with a generous grant from Diocese of Leicester Growth Fund. We are so grateful for your support. Thank you. 

We have also received a substantial loan from the Diocese.The Diocese loan will have to be paid back and we are looking at ways to be able to make this happen, through fundraising and financial giving. If you would like to support us in any way please do get in touch with the church office.

We want The Bridge to be a blessing to you and others and we need your help. Please contact the church office if you would like to contribute to The Bridge fund.

The St Andrew’s Church Prayer


God of Mission, you alone bring growth to your church.

Send your Holy Spirit to help us be a people who love you and each other.


Who worship together, pray together, learn together, serve together, cry together,play together and laugh together.


Set us on fire with the gospel of your son, Jesus Christ,and give us a desire to share his story with everyone.

May we be seed-throwers and fire-starters, hope-bringers and grace-givers.


Send us out to seek the lost, empower the poor, strengthen the weak and embrace the outcast.

And may we see Countesthorpe changed by the love you have given us to share.
