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

Sponsored Walk
All four walkers successfully completed the canal walk on Saturday, although Linda was taken to hospital afterwards to have six stitches in her hand, following a fall. We were raising funds for the church that it might continue its ministry in the community as the impact of the corona virus continues to be felt. We are very grateful to all those who have so generously sponsored us. It’s not too late to make your own contribution. You can do this by a direct bank transfer to St Andrews Church, sort code 40-18-37, account number 91162098, putting “sponsorship” as your reference or by visiting our Just Giving page at https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/greg-smith-4?utm_term=vy7EkNkbV or simply by posting a donation through the Vicarage door.


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.
