Our community is a rich multicultural, multi-ethnic mix of people drawn to Moscow from around the world for many reasons. Our numbers include corporate executive families and diplomats on two to three year assignments in Russia; teachers and students; refugees; workers involved in charity, foreign aid and other NGO work; and English speaking foreigners who simply call Russia their home! On any given Sunday we might also enjoy a visit from a group of pilgrim tourists, visiting business people or the occasional choir on European tour from the United Kingdom, the United States or South Africa.
We worship in English according to the traditions of the Church of England and the Anglican Communion. Everyone is welcome at St. Andrews where most of our worshippers hail from Great Britain, the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Nigeria, Southern Sudan, Kenya and other countries where English is a major language.
We welcome to Holy Communion any Baptized Christian who in their own conscience wishes to receive the Holy Sacrament.
For no matter how long you will call Moscow your home, a weekend or a lifetime, we welcome you to our spiritual family at St. Andrew’s.
