The Methodist Church has been at the heart of Andover since 1906. Bridge St Church has a long history of serving Andover and its needs. At least 3 of our past members have served as Mayors of Andover and members have been involved in almost every Town initiative and group you can think of!
We are a congregation offering activities and groups for all ages on Sunday and throughout the week. Like most churches, our main weekly gathering is on a Sunday morning.
As a church we sing very new songs and very old songs, we say prayers written 1000 years ago and prayers said from the heart. Methodist churches have a long history of having ordained ministers preach and training local people from the churches to preach too. Each month we will have our minister lead a service and normally take communion in that service but we rejoice in hearing a number of voices lead our worship of God each month.
We offer Children's work for primary age children during the services and children, like all who come to Bridge St, are welcome to take communion too.
Bridge Street's minister is Revd. Andy Fitchet.
The Church has no 'on site' parking facilities, but there are public car parks within easy walking distance and blue badge parking even closer. It is possible to set down in front of the Church but a circuit is then needed to gain access to the car parks. Parking is charged, apart from Sundays and after 4.00pm on weekdays and Saturdays. The two most accessible car parks are those to the north-west of the Church (best) and to the immediate south of the Church. Others involve at least a ¼ mile walk, or are not easily accessible.
