The church of St Andrew's, Hornchurch is a Church of England religious building in Hornchurchmarker, England.

St Andrew's contains a number of funereal monuments and memorials to local families and dignitaries. Among these are memorials to the daughters of William Blackborne, who lived at Hornchurch and who was related to Abraham Blackborne, the long-serving rector (58 years) of Dagenham, as well as Levett Blackborne, Lincoln's Innmarker barrister and grandson of Sir Richard Levett, Lord Mayor of London. In addition to the Blackborne memorial, there is also a stone tablet incised with verses proclaiming it as the resting place of the "Right Hon. Thomas Clutterbuck, treasurer of the Navy, and one of his Majesty's (king George II) most honourable privy council," who died 1742.

St Andrew's Church spire is copper clad. In the late 1960s the corrosion of the copper had become so bad in the lower three quarters of the spire that it had to be replaced. An appeal was raised with the usual barometer-style appeal progress indicator clearly visible to passers by on Upminster Road. Eventually, in the early 1970s the cladding was replaced and the new copper panels correctly treated with patination oil to preserve the copper as it oxidized.
