The Sunday Mass for students is at 6.00pm at St Andrew's during term time.

It's a great time to chill together and catch up on your


There are two other Sunday Masses at St Andrew's - Saturday Vigil at 6.00pm and Sunday morning at 10.30am.

Weekday Mass is Tuesday to Saturday at 12.15pm.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) is Saturdays 11.00am - 12.00pm and 5.15pm - 5.45pm.

'Ichthys' - a time to explore our faith - runs each Wednesday at 5.30pm during term time (apart from wen there is a Faith+Food). It lasts no longer than an hour and we look at loads of different things that affect our lives today. This is followed by a simple hot meal, if you want to stay!

'Faith+Food' is monthly and we spend a fair bit of time looking at a particular topic. It replace Ichthys for that week but we still get a lovely hot meal!

A Message from our Chaplaincy Ambassador

Welcome to the Chaplaincy! I'm Emma and, this year, I'm the Chaplaincy Ambassador – which means I am your rep for the Chaplains and the Parish :) I head up the social events within the chaplaincy, and we’ve got plenty coming up!


We start with our Welcome Mass followed by pizzas on Sunday 30th September, and then our exciting Welcome Meal the following Wednesday 3rd October. There will be lots of in-house events throughout the term, such as film nights, our monthly 'Faith+Food', and we’ll finish the term with Christmas Dinner in a local restaurant - plus much more in between!!


Take a look through our website, especially the Gallery page, and I hope you get a little flavour of what our community is like. But… it's no substitute for the real thing! I look forward to meeting you at our weekly social time after Sunday Mass, or at one of our social events. Have a great term!
