The church was sold to the Diocese of Southwark after the Second World War and is now on the Registered List of Buildings of historical and architectural interest.[16]

Surbiton has three parish churches, all of which date back to the Victorian era. Two of them, Saint Mark's and Saint Andrew's, are located in the town centre. The third, Saint Raphael's, is located away from the centre towards the north, in the Kingston upon Thames postal district.

Saint Andrew's is the only Victorian church in Surbiton which has been left largely untouched. The stained glass above the chancel and both in and above the baptistry is original and was designed and produced by Messrs Lavers, Barraud and Westlake, one of the best known firms at the time. The stained glass windows in other parts of the church were donated later.[15]

Surbiton receives an offhand mention in the seventh chapter of the James Bond novel On Her Majesty's Secret Service (1963) by Ian Fleming, whilst Sable Basilisk is discussing heraldry with Bond.[12]

Through successive bequests, the Church and land became the property of Captain Hon. George Savile, brother to the Sixth Earl of Mexborough, a Yorkshire family. Lady Anne Savile, daughter of the fourth Earl, lived nearby in Thames Ditton and a plaque is to be seen inside the Church commemorating her death. Unlike many other members of the Savile family buried in the vault under the High Altar, she has no known grave.
