St Andrew's Church, Norwich

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

St Andrew's Church, Norwich is a Grade I listed medieval building in Norwich.[1]

History

Saint Andrew's is a fine example of a hall church. In late Perpendicular Gothic style with a timber roof of tie beam construction, it is the second largest church in Norwich, and one of the last medieval churches to be built in the city. The main body of the church dates from 1499 to 1518. The tower dates from 1498, the south porch from c.1469 and the north porch from c. 1474.

After the Reformation St Andrew’s became a preaching house for the new 'Protestant' religion. In August 1603 John Robinson (1576 - 1625) became associate pastor of St. Andrew's Church. Norwich at this time, had strong links with Holland and Flanders. It was the home to a considerable number of foreign workers and refugees and its most influential political leaders and merchants were Puritans. Robinson was one of the founders of the Congregational church and later became pastor to the Pilgrim Fathers before their emigration to the New World.
