Welcome

St_Andrews_Entrance

St. Andrew’s Church has been serving God in the community of Eastern Green since 1875 and more recently Allesley Green and Bannerbrook Park. Our purpose as a church is:

  • To encounter the life changing God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, through prayer, worship and bible study
  • To make disciples of Jesus
  • To serve those in need especially in our own local community as if they were Jesus

The Church is open to visitors every day from 9am till 5pm. Why not come inside and have a look at this beautiful late Victorian building? It is a very peaceful place simply to sit and pray.

St. Andrew’s Church, Church Lane, Eastern Green, Coventry CV5 7BX, England

Rock Solid
Rock Solid is back and bigger than ever! Launching on Sunday 15th September, Rock Solid will run on every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month from 6-7.30pm for 9-14 year olds at Kenthurst Scout Hut. Each session we’ll have lots of fun and learn a lot about ourselves and faith. There will be some food provided so we are asking for £1 entry fee.

If you are a child at heart but don’t quite fit the age group, then why not volunteer and help lead the sessions with us? To get further information on this please e-mail: carysegner@hotmail.co.uk


Sponsored Walk
On Saturday September 14th, walkers from St Andrew’s and St Andy’s will be following the Shakespeare Avon Way, visiting 8 different churches, and covering a total of 34 miles of country lanes and fields: From Bubbenhall to Bidford. We are raising money for Kidz Klub, Tile Hill and the Church. Anyone is welcome to join us even if only to do one leg of 3-4 miles. Please contact Greg on gregsmith31760@tiscali.co.uk for further details.  Pledges of sponsorship can also be sent to this address.
The Church is seeking to raise funds for its children and youth ministry. Kidz Klub, Tile Hill, do amazing work with primary school aged children, sharing the good news of Jesus with kids from challenging backgrounds. Your sponsorship would make an incredible difference.

Book Club
Our next book club meeting is on Saturday 16th November from 9.30-11am in the vicarage. Everyone is welcome to come along. The book we are reading is: Searching for Sunday by Rachel Held Evans and this is an opportunity to discuss the book and gain insight from others. In the book ‘the author embarks on a quest to find out what it really means to be part of the Church. Centred around seven sacraments, Evans quest takes readers through a liturgical year with stories about baptism, communion, confirmation, confession, marriage, vocation, and death that are funny, heart-breaking, and sharply honest. A memoir about making do and taking risks, about the messiness of community and the power of grace, Searching for Sunday is about overcoming cynicism to find hope.’ Each person will need a copy of the book (or access an audio version of the book) and need to have read it, or some of it before we meet.
If you are interested please speak with Greg or Sue Masters.


Tots Praise
Pram Service has recently had a bit of a review, we have updated its format slightly
and  changed its name to Tots Praise!
It is still running every 2
nd and 4th Tuesday of the month all year round
and doors still open at 8.45am.
If you arrive between 8.45am and 9.30am there will be time for some tea, toast and toys followed by the same style baby/toddler service full of action songs, instruments, a bible story, prayers and ending with a craft activity which ends the service.
Tots Praise is a perfect way to introduce babies and toddlers to church whilst sharing such precious times with your little ones.
For enquiries please contact Julie on 07756 918847 or
