26th January 2020 – The Third Sunday of Epiphany

Welcome
St Andrew’s Church welcomes allcomers, whether this is your first time or thousandth time in church. You are welcome whatever your age, gender, marital status, disability, race or sexuality. You are welcome whether you have a deep and mature faith in Christ; are uncertain and still seeking; or have no faith. If you are new to church, please do take a welcome leaflet to be found in the pews; and do not hesitate to ask one of the welcomers if you have any queries.

Prayer Available
Please note that there is always someone willing to pray with you after the service about any need or concern you have. Please feel free to approach one of the prayer team direct or ask one of the clergy.

Worship 4 All
This year, Worship 4 All services will be exploring the fruit of the Spirit, starting next week with Love.

Week of Christian Unity
The climax to the week of prayer for Christian unity is tonight, when churches from across the area will meet for a Celebration Service at St Oswald’s at 6.30pm. Greg will be speaking at our service led by Father Dexter Bracey, the Bishop of Ebbsfleet’s representative to Coventry Diocese. Do support this occasion if you possibly can. Any donations of cakes will be gratefully appreciated by St Oswald’s who have kindly agreed to host the service.

We are now Contactless!
As we move more and more towards a society that uses plastic to pay rather than cash, we are finding people attending services who are asking if they can make their collection or give donations using a contactless bank card. I’m please to say that we are now able to meet this request, as we have a contactless card reader for St Andrew’s. If you wish to give your weekly collection or make a donation in this way, please speak to one of the Churchwardens who will help you do this. It’s quick, your privacy is protected and we can also issue a receipt to a phone or email address. We will not be making the card reader available when the collection is taken during the service. There are however, blue cards at the back of church you can use and place in the basket at the time of the collection, then use the card reader before or after the service. These blue cards are used by people who make their giving to church by Direct Debit. If you have any questions please speak to one of the Churchwardens who will be happy to help.

Parish Weekend 15th to 17th May 2020
Following two successful weekends we are doing it again in 2020 and would love you to join us. WHAT IS IT? A weekend away for members of St Andrew’s/St Andy’s to come together for Bible teaching, worship, prayer and fellowship. WHERE IS IT? Shallowford House, Staffordshire (about an hour’s drive from Coventry). WHO IS IT FOR? Everyone, including children. WHAT DOES IT COST? The cost is £160 per adult with reduced prices for children. If you want to know more? Speak with Sue Masters (07958322026, susanmasters@sky.com) or with Greg. Book now with a small deposit to secure your place on the weekend.

Church Cleaning
We are looking for, hopefully, 6 volunteers to help clean the church. This means we could have 4 teams of 2, so it would only involve having to clean once a month. Denise and I would cover a five-week month. It only requires about 1 -2 hours of your time, and is an important ministry within the church. At the moment we clean on Fridays, from 10am to approx. 11.30am., but you could suit yourselves. If you are able to oblige, please have a word with me or Denise. Thank you for your consideration. Jackie Lynch.

Flower List
The new flower list for 2020 is now at the back of church. If you would like to pay for flowers for a particular week, please fill your name in as soon as possible to get the date you want. Thank you, Ann Dove.

Eastern Green History Group
Please note that it is the AGM of the Eastern Green History Group which meets monthly at St Andrew’s on the 4th Monday of the month. The meeting starts at 7.15pm. All welcome.

PowerPoint
We are looking for an additional volunteer who would be willing on an occasional basis to operate the PowerPoint for the screens on Sunday morning. The volunteer would be expected to help once every couple of months or so.

Tots Praise
Tots Praise is going to have a holiday through January and February, restarting in March.

The Link Magazine
It is now a year since the Link was discontinued as a paper magazine distributed to every home in the parish. It is still much missed. However, please don’t forget that all the content is still available to read online on the St Andrew’s website on the first of each month.

Social Calendar
Rod Stewart – Feb 8th (tickets available from Rosemarie Over or online at https://www.wegottickets.com/event/495503/
Skittles Evening – May 22nd
Party in the Park – June 6th

Sermon Series
During Lent, we will be having a sermon series that will explore the different elements of the Sunday morning service (Confession, hymn singing, the creed, the Peace, the Eucharist). We hope you will find this helpful.

Side Room Curtains
Many thanks to Beryl Lee who has kindly paid for the new curtains in the side room. Thanks also to Julia and Clive McNaney for purchasing them and putting them up. They certainly make the side room feel warmer and do much to end the echo.

Tastelife
St Andrew’s will be running a new group for those suffering with eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, overeating etc.) and also those caring for sufferers. It begins on Thursday February 6th for 8 weeks. The course which helps sufferers to break free of their eating disorder is nationally accredited by the University of Brighton. Places need to be booked in advance. For further information, please speak to Greg or Rosemarie.

Next Sunday
Sees our regular first Sunday pattern of said communion at 8am, followed by Worship 4 all at 10am and a service of contemplation led by Greg at 6.30pm marking Candlemas.

Social Committee
Rosemarie Over and Jackie Lynch do a magnificent job planning social events to enhance the life of the church, but we need a couple of more people to help with this. The committee meets approx. 5 times a year, although there is work to be done between meetings (booking venues, organising refreshments etc.). Anyone interested in helping should speak to them or Greg about it.

Transport for Medical Appointments
St Andrew’s new service, offering lifts to medical appointments at Coventry doctors and hospital has started.  To book a lift, please contact Julie on 07756 918847 or administrator@standrews-eg.org.uk. It is important that as much notice as possible is given. We are enormously grateful to all our volunteer drivers who have freely offered their time. A recent review found that we have been successful in providing lifts for 87% of requests. Volunteers have to date been called on approximately once a month. If we are to maintain this level of service, as demand increases, we will need more volunteers. If you willing to offer an occasional lift, please contact Greg or Julie. This message of thanks shows how valuable the service can be:
“I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for organising my lift to Walsgrave Hospital today. I would like to put on record how fabulous both Hilary and Steve were getting me there in plenty of time. As I really didn’t know where I needed to go when I got there Steve escorted me to the outpatients department and to the correct reception desk for my clinic. The have certainly redeemed my faith in the human race, particularly at this time.”

Altar Flowers
This week’s altar flowers were kindly donated by Rita Muir.

Prayer List
Please pray for Rita Weston, Barbara & Jack Bartlett, Jane Caswell, Jean Carter, Beryl Poppitt, Colin Sanders, Flix Haynes, Josie Yates, Beryl Lee and Rosemary Pottinger. To add names to the list please contact Julie at administrator@standrews-eg.org.uk or 07756 918847.

Through her talent for crafting, Rebecca Martin has raised a great total of £235.60 for much needed church funds. A great deal of patience is required to make such lovely items, and she informs me there will be more for sale throughout 2020, so please continue to support her. Well done!

Prayer Available
Please note that there is always someone willing to pray with you after the service about any need or concern you have. Please feel free to approach one of the prayer team direct or ask one of the clergy.

Norah Hall
We are extremely grateful to Norah, who has given a much appreciated legacy to St Andrew’s.

Each person will need a copy of the book (or access an audio version of the book) and need to have read some of it before we meet. If you are interested please speak with Greg or Sue Masters.

Church Cleaning Opportunity
We have a very willing band of people who clean the church each week, but we are in need of more help please to share the burden. They clean the church on a Friday. The more volunteers we have the easier and quicker it is to clean. It would also mean we can set up two teams, so people aren’t required every week. The cleaning takes a couple of hours and is an important form of ministry. Many of our visitors comment on how lovely and clean the church looks when they visit and this doesn’t happen by chance, but by the efforts of those who clean. If you can help please speak to Jackie Lynch or one of the Churchwardens.

We are enormously grateful to all our volunteer drivers who have freely offered their time. We still need more volunteers if you willing to offer a lift, perhaps once a fortnight.  his message of thanks shows how valuable the service can be:
“I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for organising my lift to Walsgrave Hospital today. I would like to put on record how fabulous both Hilary and Steve were getting me there in plenty of time. As I really didn’t know where I needed to go when I got there Steve escorted me to the outpatients department and to the correct reception desk for my clinic. The have certainly redeemed my faith in the human race, particularly at this time.”

Photos from the Nativity

No Room at the Inn
St Andrew’s Nativity is a retelling of the age-old story of how the world was changed by a tiny baby. A live action, child-friendly, sing-a-long, animal-packed adventure for all the family. Ordinary people at the mercy of politicians. Wise men who don’t appear to have any better idea of what’s going on than the rest of us. And there’s always someone with an eye for an opportunity, ready to make money out of other people’s pain. Sounds familiar? At least this story is guaranteed a happy ending.

Here are some photos from our first performance.
