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

Memorial Service
Our annual Memorial Service in which we remember by name all those who have
died in the parish over the last 12 months will take place on
Sunday 4th November at 6.30pm.
We will automatically remember anyone by name who has had their service at
St Andrew’s or whose funeral has been presided over by one of our clergy and has died between September 2017 and September 2018.
We are always ready to read the names of anyone else if requested.
Simply notify Julie Crow at administrator@standrews-eg.org.uk
Anyone is welcome to attend the service, which will provide comforting readings, familiar and uplifting hymns and the opportunity to light a candle
in memory of your loved one.
Refreshments will be served after the service.


Alpha
A 6-week version of the Alpha course will be taking place at the Vicarage on Wednesday evenings starting Weds 7th November at 7pm.
This is an excellent way to learn about the Christian faith, with no prior knowledge expected. It’s also a good chance to get to know others in church.
For further information, please speak to Greg or Dan Smith.
To register a place, contact Julie at
administrator@standrews-eg.org.uk or 07756 918847.




Sponsored Walk
On Saturday 11th August, 13 people from St Andrew’s ranging in age from
7-70+ walked a combined length of 327 miles along the Heart of England Way, some walking as many as 34 miles from Alcester to Bourton on the Water, starting at 4.30am and not finishing until 8pm. Tribute should be made to the heroic walkers as well as the selfless support crew  who also went without sleep in order to be there for us at the beginning and end as well as several welcome spots along the way.
We were raising funds, split equally between St Andrew’s Church and for a memorial garden at St Andrew’s School in memory of Brandon Gurney, a six-year-old boy who died very suddenly at Christmas. It is not too late to make pledges of sponsorship by signing the form at the back of church or by emailing us
at administrator@standrews-eg.org.uk


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.
Hope to see you there sometime, Emma (St Andrews Children’s and Families Worker)
