St Andrew’s Church Utterby

The Church

The church building is cherished by the whole community and although congregations may be small it’s heritage and social activities are very well supported by all villagers. We have a great group of volunteers who help to maintain the church and churchyard. They have completed several restoration projects and ensured that history and heritage information is available to visitors. The Anglican parish church is dedicated to St Andrew, patron saint of fishermen, and is the oldest existing building in the village. The church and tower were built about 1340, however, the list of rectors which can be seen in the church begins a century earlier in 1220AD.
“The Church Building is Cherished by the Whole Community”
A few yards from the entrance gate lies the base of a medieval cross which would have served as the focal point for earlier Christian services, possibly going back even earlier than 1220AD. The Lower churchyard offers a place for quiet reflection, with benches placed amidst the trees and wildflower. The church can seat up to 120 people for events and special services. Sunday services are held on the fourth Sunday of the month, usually at 10.00am
