St Andrew's Church, Norwich is a Grade I listed medieval building in Norwich.HistoryThe present-day church of 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 is circa 1469 and the north porch circa 1474.After the Reformation St Andrew’s became a preaching house for the new ‘Protestant’ religion. In August 1603 John Robinson (pastor) (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.Main dates1386 Bequests made to a church on this site 1478 West tower under construction c.1496 Work on West tower completed 1506 Work completed on the nave and chancel, replacing the previous structure 1557 Elizabeth Cooper burned as a heretic 1607 Churchwardens excommunicated for installing special seating for local dignitaries 1637 Font cover produced 1867 Major restoration work undertaken including new pews, pulpit and stone screen 1878 Font replaced 1908 Organ case installed
