Welcome

St Andrew’s Church worships every Sunday at 10 a.m. The first Sunday of the month is a children’s service, while other Sundays offer Holy Communion. Attendance at these services is by invitation only. If you would like to join us, please contact administrator@standrews-eg.org.uk. In parallel with our ‘in person’ worship, we post a service online every Sunday at 10 a.m. This can be accessed via the menu in the right hand column. Please also read our twice-weekly bulletins to keep up with all the church is doing.
The church is now available for small weddings and small funerals with a maximum capacity of 20 people. Please feel free to phone our Wedding Coordinator, Rebecca Martin, on 024 76461508 to discuss your wedding plans or administrator Julie to enquire about a funeral service at administrator@standrews-eg.org.uk
Please contact the vicar, Greg Smith, or Julie the Parish Administrator if you have any concerns or enquiries.

“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

Please contact Julie on 07756 918847 or administrator@standrews-eg.org.uk for further details


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


Building our Faith
We are planning a Wednesday evening online group for the Autumn which will be an opportunity to come together to look at the Bible, and to build our faith. There will be a brief talk and then space to discuss the topic for that evening, points raised in the talk and any related questions people have. It will be a place to explore, to learn and to build our faith together.
Access details are available from Sue Masters.
If you are interested, have questions, need more information please contact me.

Sponsored Walk
Throughout the corona crisis, St Andrews Church has sought to meet the needs of the local community. We have opened an emergency food hub and staffed it with volunteers; we have shopped for the elderly and the isolated; we have maintained telephone contact with hundreds of people. We have also supplied PPE to care homes, food banks and businesses across Coventry. We have done all this despite not being able to meet for worship. This has emptied our coffers and we are looking for financial support to further our work in the community.
To do this, on Saturday October 3rd, intrepid volunteers are going to be walking the Coventry Canal (over 20 miles) and we want you (if you would be so kind) to sponsor us. Please donate directly to St Andrews Church via bank transfer 40-18-37 91162098 marking your donation as sponsorship or via just giving

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
