Our church was conceived on April 6, 1960, when eleven men and women met with then Reverend Edward H. Cook and agreed to start a mission parish in Rocky Hill, originally called “Grace Church”. A canvass was conducted throughout the town, and on May 8, 1960, nearly 100 men, women and children gathered for services held in the Stevens School cafeteria. The name was soon changed to The Church of St. Andrew the Apostle. In the late 1980s the church successfully moved from mission status (receiving some support from the diocese) to a fully self-supporting parish in the Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut. The church continues to thrive with a joyful and vibrant spirit.
