Welcome to the Parish of Farnham

We have two churches, St Andrew’s and St Francis, providing different types of services at different times of the day and we hope that most people can find something to suit them.

St Andrew’s Church is open daily for private prayer.  There is a quiet area at the front for prayer, where you can light a candle or leave a prayer request.  If you would like someone to pray with you, there will be someone available in the church from 10am-12pm each weekday morning.

The administration for the Parish happens in the Parish Office.    To contact the  Office ring 01252 715412 or email office@standrewsfarnham.org

About the Farnham Parish and its people

We serve everyone who lives and works in our parish in central Farnham

We are conscious of the Church of England’s unique calling to be a place of welcome to all – irrespective of their faith convictions. Many people worship here on Sundays and during the week, Many others value the church as a place of silence and reflection during the day, where they can bring their needs, longings and hopes to God; where candles can be lit, or the simple spaciousness of the building can be enjoyed. We are glad to host many musical and artistic events, too, and are keen to encourage use of the church by the wider community.

Elsewhere on this website you can pick up a flavour of our life and worship, as well as the many ways in which we serve the people of Farnham. I hope your ‘virtual’ visit will inspire you to come and discover the church, as well as the Christian community which cares for it.

The PCC

The Governing Body and Practical Running of the Church
The Parochial Church Council and Electoral Roll.

The church is run by the Rector and the PCC – Parochial Church Council. The PCC is made up of 12 elected members from members of the congregation.  You are welcome to join our Church Family Membership List, called the Electoral Roll.   If you would like to be on the Electoral Roll you have to live in the parish or be a regular worshipper.  You can apply for membership at any time.

The PCC meet 10 times a year. The Annual Parochial Church Meeting elects members to the PCC. This is usually held in the spring.
