St Andrew's is the parish church for north Deal, Kent. We are a friendly church of the Anglo Catholic tradition, within the Church of England. The church was built from 1849 as 'The Boatmen's Church', to offer a spiritual home to the boatmen who mainly lived in the north of the town.
Deep in the heart of the community of North Deal, St Andrew's offers a wide range of events throughout the year in which to participate, - the annual Blessing of the sea in May, our free world class Monday morning coffee concerts in the Summer, and Summer and Christmas Fairs. There will be something for all ages and interests.
It costs well over £1,500 per week to keep our church alive. Our current income, made up from collections, coffee mornings, fundraising and church hall hire leaves no margin for unexpected emergencies. Even just a small donation can make a difference.
Mass will be offered on every Wednesday morning at 9:30AM until we can build up to a daily Mass again. Thanks to some very committed lay folk Morning and Evening Prayer with the Angelus or Regina Coeli will be offered. Please check for times.
Coronavirus update: Our next Mass will be on Wednesday 2 December when we will start again with Morning Prayer at 9:00 followed by Mass at 9:30. The church is open for private prayer only on Wed & Sundays between 10 and 11 am.
