St Andrew's Church is of an ancient foundation and some of the stone fabric dates back to the 12th Century. Within the twenty years when Geoffrey Holland acted as the Architect responsible for the maintenance and enhancement of the church, several repair projects were carried out including the re-leading of the tower roof, masonry and pointing repairs, the re-leading of nave roof parapet gutters and the repair of the 17th century oak bell-frame.

Later phases of work saw the completion of the major internal refurbishment projects which now leaves the church in a much improved condition. These works consisted of cleaning and repainting of the walls and ceilings to the Nave and Chancel, the repair of structural cracks to the tower walls, limited re-ordering of the west end beneath the tower, repairs to the west door and doorway and the comprehensive re-lighting of the interior.

Kenny Brown was the project architect for the latest phase of works. A new dais was installed to greatly improve the worship space at the crossing, with integrated access ramps and bespoke wrought iron and bronze handrailings allowing access for all between the differing floor levels. New bespoke items of oak furniture including an altar, lectern, credence table and stools were also architect-designed to complete the re-ordering of this area. State of the art audio-visual equipment was also incorporated with the completed scheme now providing a greatly enhanced, modern facility for the church's parishioners.
