The origins of St Andrews lie in a gift of land in 1158 from Henry II to the monks of Montjoux on the alpine pass of St Bernard, in recognition of their help to the king's messengers. The monks quickly built a priory. The horned bull may have come from their seal and may have given the settlement its name.

This project consists of a small infill extension to the church hall providing a disabled toilet and additional vestry space.

The copper roof coverings in use on the remainder of the complex were nearing the end of their life and were no longer easily available.

Despite the contrasting appearance of the new roof in the short term, a decision has been made to use the same material when the existing roof comes to be replaced.
