About the Church
St. Andrew`s was built through the joining together of the two previous Methodist Churches in Sheringham, one on Station Road and one on Beeston Road. It was opened on 22nd. June 1968.
The building has many distinctive features, including the mosaic on the outside wall, which if you look at it carefully you can discern a cross, this represents Christ present in the confused world.
At the top of the tower are 4 stainless steel crosses, and the light from the top of the tower can be seen from sea.
Many aspect of the church are symbolic - the carpets being blue and yellow representing sea and sand and pebble wall - and the pulpit is in the shape of the prow of a boat - all representing our links to the sea, and of Jesus`s ministry by the sea of Galilee.
The Communion area is circular, for sharing together around God`s table. This is in front of our beautiful stained glass window. At the centre of the sanctuary is the pulpit and to the right a 10ft high rough hewn cross. The font on the far right is in the shape of a woman`s womb.
Above the Communion Table are twelve lights with one in the centre, representing Christ and the disciples, and three lights across the front of the sanctuary represent the Trinity.
