NEW TO OUR CHURCH?

If so, you would probably like to know a bit more about what goes on.

Music can be inspiring,

calming, meditative and

a million other things.  

We asked the choir

and congregation to pass on

links to some of their

particular favourites,

and we'll add a new one

each month.

  Any suggestions welcome . . .

MUSIC

WHAT IS CHRISTIANITY?

A Christian is someone

who believes that if we get to know Jesus Christ and follow his teachings, we can work with his Spirit to let God's kingdom into our world - a kingdom of love, justice,

and peace.

If you want to explore further, christianity.org.uk is a great website:

Churchyard in spring.jpeg

For over 900 years St Andrew's has stood at the heart of the village, and its church bells have rung out to mourn or celebrate every great event of our country's history.  

For centuries Sandford villagers have been laid to rest in the churchyard, which is

a place steeped in history and memories - still open to all

and visited by many for

peaceful meditation or reflection.

The church building is of interest in itself - click

on the button below

for a leaflet on its history.

AND CHURCHYARD
EXPLORING FAITH

We've put together a list of our favourite websites which have helped us to pray, meditate and reflect

on God's word.

If you discover others that you find helpful,

do let us know.

OUR VILLAGE

In 1086 the Domesday Book

counted 18 families as living by

the sandy ford over the Thames

between Iffley and Radley.   

Six hundred years later the

population of the village

had barely doubled,

and it was still under 200 people

at the start of the 19th century.  

Today the parish boundaries

have been enlarged, and the

population numbers

more than 1,200.

If you are new to the village,

welcome. 

You may find the newcomers

guide (click here)

a useful introduction

to what goes on.

(The guide was written

pre-Covid - some things have

changed (e.g. Talking Shop

times of opening)

but there's not much point in

making the corrections until

some normality returns to life.)
