Worship takes place in St. Andrew’s Church every Sunday at 10.30am and there is a crèche and Junior Church.

[notice]There is limited car parking immediately outside the main (west) gate to the Church and additional parking is available (during services only) in the ‘field’ on the opposite side of Coastguard Lane, adjacent to Old School House.[/notice]

The church stands over 163 metres (536 feet) above sea level and the tower rises another 25 metres (82 feet). The tower is open to the public most weekends from May to September and on bank holidays, between 2.00 and 5.00 pm, but please ring (01424 812799) to check before you travel any distance. On clear days, there are magnificent views over the English Channel to the French coast, as well as northwards over the Sussex Weald and to the east across Romney Marsh.

The Belfry contains one bell, dating from the 14th century, which is still tolled regularly every Sunday to summon worshipers. In 1950 another peel of eight bells was added. These are operated by a carillon keyboard which can be used to play hymn tunes.


Our churchyard, which is still in use, contains several notable memorials (see: History). If you have a connection with any of the people laid to rest in the churchyard, we would love to make contact with you. We are keen to know more about those who are buried there and this is so much easier when relatives & descendants are willing to help. If you can assist, please contact our Administrator, Kath Barron, admin@fairlightandpett.com or telephone 01424 812799.
