Welcome to St Andrew with St Alban in the Parish of Mottingham

The parish church St Andrew and its daughter church St Alban have developed this website to connect with the wider parish community as well as support existing worshipers. We would love to see you at one of our events or monthly lunches. Come and meet friendly, welcoming people and join us for coffee after a service. Both of our churches have halls with facilities and can be hired for events, functions and meetings. Take a look through this website and if you have any questions or would like to know more please contact the parish office (contact details below).
