St Andrew, SidcupSt Andrew’s is a little unusual, because it was founded in the 20th century after pressure from local people for a new parish church. When the Albany Park estate was built in the 1930s, the nearest Anglican church was about 2 miles away

To meet the needs of local people during the war, in 1944, the vicar of All Saints in Footscray started holding communion services in a room over the shops in Lewis Road

By 1946 a hall in Wren Road was being used officially for the St Andrew’s congregation, as a daughter church of All Saints, Footscray

From 1954, a priest was appointed to care for the people of Albany Park; services continued in the hall for another decade

Eventually plans were approved to build a church building in the centre of the Albany Park estate.
