Places of Worship

St André de la Pommeraye

St André de la Pommeraye, which translates as St Andrew of the Apple Orchard, is the Parish Church of St Andrew. It is believed to have reached its present size by the 15th century.  Over the centuries it was extended at different periods and it is now probably double its original in size. Although St Andrew’s has no coastline large boulders from the sea have been used in the construction.

There are some fine stained glass windows, some examples of which are below:

 

This window commemorates the fallen from the First World War 1914-1918. It is located on the Epistle Side (on the right as you face the Altar) of the Church near the entrance. It is the focus for the annual Memorial service on 11th November.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Outside at the South East corner of the Church there is a sundial dated 1687, probably with a replacement gnomon, it is showing the correct GMT after over 330 years without anyone climbing the tower to rewind!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Across the road from the Church is La Fontaine St Clare and an apple orchard planted on Glebe land by Rocquette Cider Company.

There are two cemeteries in the Parish one for the Church and another Parochial cemetery. applications for burial should be made either to the St Andrew’s Church or the Parish Office depending on the choice of burial location.
