Administrative/Biographical history:

Saint Andrew's church opened in 1865. The church was designed by George Gilbert Scott (1811-1878) in an early Gothic style. Reverend Richard Croft, Vicar of Hillingdon 1856-69 was responsible for asking Sir Gilbert Scott to design a new church for Uxbridge. The builder of the church was William Fassnidge of Uxbridge. The foundation stone was laid on 29-06-1864 and the completed church was consecrated on 01-05-1865.

The original church consisted of a chancel, aisled nave, south porch and sanctuary. The tower and shingled spire were completed in 1866. There have been various alterations to the church over the years including a major restoration project on the spire between 1952 and 1957. This project was led by the company Gray's of Holborn.

A mission room dedicated to Saint Peter was built in the Greenway in 1906.
