“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.  I will say of the Lord: He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
Psalm 91.1-2

A new telephone support line, the Coventry Churches Wellbeing Info Line has just launched. This line will be open each Tuesday between 10 am and 12 noon, and each Thursday between 2 pm and 4 pm. There is a 24-hour answerphone which will be responded to during session times only. The volunteers who run it are people with lived experience of mental ill health, and those who are trained in signposting, listening and guidance. It is a place to get information on mental health services throughout the city, find a listening ear and a reminder of God’s presence in the brokenness of the current circumstances. There is a Punjabi speaker available.
The number to ring is: 07467 807437

Food shopping
Although the situation may change, at the moment we have a large bank of volunteers keen to help with shopping.  Do get in touch with Julie by emailing administrator@standrews-eg.org.uk or by phoning 07756 918847.  You can do this for yourself or on behalf of a neighbour/friend/family member if you live in Eastern Green or Allesley Green.  Please, please, please if you are over 70 or have other underlying health problems, let someone else do this for you.  Keep yourself safe and do your bit in ensuring the NHS is not overwhelmed.
Bannerbrook Park and Mount Nod
If you live in Bannerbrook Park or Mount Nod and would either like to volunteer to shop for the elderly and vulnerable or require help with your shopping please contact Jo Kerr at woodlandscovid@gmail.com or tel: 07807 101128


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.
