St Andrew’s Parish Church – Shalford Essex CM7 5HH
Almost every generation has left its mark on our ancient St Andrew Parish Church which serves this small village of about 750 people. In all probability, the present building was erected on the site of an earlier Norman structure, as is evidenced by the clasping buttresses on the lower part of the Tower, indicating a 12th century origin.
June 2016 refurbishment of church organ commences >>more<<
St Andrew’s Shalford, welcomes all visitors and various leaflets about the church and contents are available within the porch
Protecting Children and Vulnerable Adults
The Bishop of Chelmsford is determined that our churches should be safe places for everyone. The Church’s policies and procedures are clearly displayed in the porch of St Andrew’s and explanatory leaflets, in the form of pocket guides, are in the “Safeguarding” folder on the table inside the church.
If you have any concerns that a child or vulnerable adult attending church services or church activities may be being abused or neglected, please contact the Parish Safeguarding Representative- Ann Singleton on 01371850918 or firstname.lastname@example.org
If you believe that the child or adult is in IMMEDIATE danger, dial the Police on 999
For a very small charge a memorial book is available to record lost loved ones and is always on display inside the main entrance.
