18th November 2018 – Second Sunday before Advent

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.

Remembrance Exhibition
Many, many thanks to Nick, Sue and Steve for all their hard work in putting such a powerful remembrance exhibition together last weekend. It was enjoyed by hundreds of people, church members and non-church members alike; and will live long in the memories of all those who saw it.

Churchyard Fund
The PCC are keen to maintain the churchyard at its most pleasing, but it costs money we don’t have to pay for a full cutting, strimming and tidying regime. Anyone wishing to give to a churchyard fund to address this should place any gift in a clearly marked envelope. We are very grateful for the generous gifts already received.

New Wine
St James on Tile Hill Lane are hosting a New Wine evening on Tuesday 20th November, with Ian Parkinson as guest speaker. Refreshments are served from 7pm and worship starting at 7.30pm.

Facebook
We are really grateful to Carys Egner who has agreed to take over the role as Facebook administrator. She can be contacted at carysegner@hotmail.co.uk. We are hoping to keep Facebook updated with occasional devotional contributions. Anyone willing to offer an occasional piece should speak to Greg.

Darkness to Light/Toy Service
Advent Sunday on December 2nd will begin with a said communion at 8am, followed by our Toy Service at 10am. We are inviting people to bring new, unwrapped toys to church that day or in the week preceding (not afterwards please) to place under the tree, and to be distributed to children in the city who would otherwise go without at Christmas, via Coventry City Mission. That evening, we will have our candle-lit Darkness to Light Service, which many find to be a very moving start to Advent. Greg would be pleased to hear from anyone willing to volunteer to serve refreshments, act as a sidesperson or read.

Amnesty International Christmas Cards for Prisoners of Conscience
The annual card writing evening will be held on Wednesday 5th December at 7.30pm in the side room. As usual cards will be written to prisoners of conscience around the world. Seasonal refreshments will be provided. Donations towards postage will be gratefully received even if you’re unable to come. Trevor Hill.

Flowers
Volunteers needed to help decorate the church for Christmas on Saturday 1st December at 9.15am. Donations towards Christmas flowers would be much appreciated. Thank you, Ann Dove.

St Andrew’s Church Christmas Fayre
The event will take place in Eastern Green Village Hall on Saturday 1st December from 1pm to 3pm. We would be grateful for donations of bottles, chocolate, cakes, bric a brac, books, nearly new items, raffle prizes, etc, anything else you can think of! Thanks, Gill Tunnicliffe & Jackie Lynch. We have been donated some bicycles to raise funds for the Fayre and currently have 1 BMX Alley to suit a 6-9 year old and 1 little girl’s Princess Bicycle to suit a 2-3 year old. If anyone is interested please see Gill for details.

Advent Course
With Christmas fast approaching why not take time out of the busyness to meet with others to look at the Bible and share the Good News of Christmas? At St. Andrew’s we are preparing for Christmas by holding a four-week Advent group and all are welcome. We will be meeting on Tuesday mornings, at 55 Handsworth Crescent, Eastern Green, starting on Tuesday 27th November and the sessions will run from 10-11.30am. We would love you to join us. If you would like to come or want to know more, please speak with me or call me on 07958 322026. Sue Masters.

Parish Weekend 10th to 12th May 2019
With Christmas not far away, I want to encourage you to think about next Spring and the St Andrew’s Parish weekend. Following a successful weekend this year we are doing it again in 2019 and would love you to join us. The cost will be £150 for adults with reductions for children and we will operate a saving scheme if that helps make it possible for you. There will be an early bird discount of £10 for those signing up before end of November. Places are going fast so if you are interested or would like more information please speak with Sue Masters or Greg. For those already signed up we are happy to take deposits or to start your saving plan. Please speak with Sue about this (07958322026, susanmasters@sky.com).

Cleaning
We now have a trio of volunteers who have agreed to take on the cleaning of the church. It would be helpful still to have another team of 3 so we always have cover. It takes about 1.5 hours each Friday from 1pm. If you would like to know more about what it entails please speak to Greg, Fran or Jackie Lynch.

The Annual Shoebox Appeal
Has begun in Coventry. The last date for boxes to be transferred to the collection point is 29th November but I will start taking them over on Wednesday 14th November. Leaflets with instructions and labels will be at the back of the church ASAP. Please leave your boxes in the side room for collection.  If you need any shoes boxes, we usually have a few to spare. Have a look at the videos on ‘You Tube’ to see the faces of the children when they receive the boxes if you haven’t already seen them, absolutely wonderful. St. Andrew’s always supports this appeal generously and I’m sure I can rely on you again this year. Many thanks, Julia McNaney.

Family Tea with Santa Saturday
The children’s team have invited Santa to tea on Saturday, 8th December at Eastern Green Village Hall, 3.30-5pm. There will be games, afternoon tea and Santa has promised to bring a gift for every child. We hope you will want to come too. This event is for the whole church family – children, parents, grandparents and anyone young at heart! Please note that children must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets are available from Hilary, Becky and Emma.

St Oswald’s Christmas Fayre
Will take place on Saturday 24th November at 11am. Please do go along and enjoy the festive fun.

Font Remains
The removal of the old stone font has resulted in the base, which was made of very high-quality stone, being rendered into pieces large and small which have been deposited behind the church. Anyone who wants to use either the larger pieces decoratively or the smaller pieces as rubble is welcome to help themselves. We would encourage a voluntary contribution to church funds by way of payment.

Alpha
A 6-week version of the Alpha continues next Monday, the 26th November, at the Vicarage and continues on Monday nights until 17th December. 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 Dan at daniel.benjamin.smith@outlook.com or 07918 550210.

Confirmation
Please pray for our five confirmation candidates Terry & Jayne Nye, Niamh McIntire, Cesari Tabor and Jacob Fellowes, who are being confirmed at Coventry Cathedral on November 24th.

An Act of Remembrance – 100 Years on. A Weekend of Commemoration
St Andrew’s Church will be marking the centenary of World War 1 with a special exhibition on Saturday 10th November from 10am to 4pm, leading then in to our Act of Remembrance on Sunday 11th November within the Communion Service at 10am. The exhibition will be divided into three important elements.

1)            The contribution made by people from our parish, who are remembered on the plaque in church, especially those who made the supreme sacrifice. It will build the link between Eastern Green and the wider conflict.

2)            We will remember the role played by the people of Coventry – The Home Front. Focusing especially on the impact of the war on the women of Coventry.

3)            There will be an opportunity for people to take time to remember and commemorate with their own personal act of remembrance on the day.

On this special anniversary, this will be a unique opportunity for everyone to commemorate and learn a little more about how World War 1 touched the lives of those we remember each year.

We want to create a living wall to those who fought in WW1 and survived. On the plaque in church there are 30 soldiers who we believe returned and we want to appeal to anyone with information and a photo of them to bring them along to be included in the exhibition. The soldiers names are: L CPL H.J. ARNOLD, PTE W.J. MALLIER, L CPL G.E. BAND, PTE A. MOTT, PTE E.J. BLOXHAM, GNR W.B. NEAL, PTE G. BRITTAIN, SPR ALEC B. PLANT,  CPL A.T. CLAPTON, PTE ALF B.

An Act of Remembrance – 100 Years on. A Weekend of Commemoration
St Andrew’s Church will be marking the centenary of World War 1 with a special exhibition on Saturday 10th November from 10am to 4pm, leading then in to our Act of Remembrance on Sunday 11th November within the Communion Service at 10am.

1)            The contribution made by people from our parish, who are remembered on the plaque in church, especially those who made the supreme sacrifice. It will build the link between Eastern Green and the wider conflict.

2)            We will remember the role played by the people of Coventry – The Home Front. Focusing especially on the impact of the war on the women of Coventry.

3)            There will be an opportunity for people to take time to remember and commemorate with their own personal act of remembrance on the day.

On this special anniversary, this will be a unique opportunity for everyone to commemorate and learn a little more about how World War 1 touched the lives of those we remember each year.

We want to create a living wall to those who fought in WW1 and survived. On the plaque in church there are 30 soldiers who we believe returned and we want to appeal to anyone with information and a photo of them to bring them along to be included in the exhibition.
