Welcome to the website of St. Andrew’s with Castle Gate URC, Nottingham.

Our church is curently remaining closed for public worship and our halls are closed to meetings while the leadership undertakes a detailed risk-assessment. We will be consultating with members about ways in which we may best meet their needs and those of the community during this time when much concern remains with regard to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The size of our congregations and current restrictions mean that it is not possible for us to provide public worship as we normally would in our church building so we are continuing to record services (with individuals contributing from their own homes) and we share these on YouTube week by week, as detailed below. Please contact us if you have concerns about this.

Recordings of services may be found HERE during this difficult period.

An “eNewsletter” (a newsletter shared with members by email) is being produced and is normally shared on a Wednesday or Thursday.

We will be making a special effort to update these pages regularly in the coming days.
