The church project for 2013 is the Anesis Homeless Ministry.
This charity began a couple of years ago with the aim of helping vulnerable, homeless, drug addicted, alcoholic men and women. The charity grew quickly and is now the premier homeless outreach ministry in Coventry. Having started supporting one individual, they now support almost 150 vulnerable people with practical things such as sandwiches, coffee, tea, homemade soup, sleeping bags, clothes, spiritual and emotional support, and sometimes, most importantly for some, someone to talk to. They are now partnered with Sainsbury’s at Courthouse Green, in providing food parcels, and the basic provisional needs are financially met by the generosity of Northpoint Church.
Anesis believe that everyone has a purpose, a destiny, a reason to belong. Some may have forgotten what that is through the trials and adversity in their lives, but through the love of those who reach out to them, the hope is to help them rediscover their worth. This is a totally Christian voluntary organisation, and Anesis are desperate to be the difference that will make a difference. With prayer, and the opportunity of leading them to salvation – lives can be changed forever. Kervin Julien, the Ministry Director speaks from personal experience as he was once in the position of the people he now helps.
At the church bazaar on the 24th of November the Revd Dr Peter Stevenson will be launching his new book “The Healing Beyond the Miracle”. The book gives an insight into how to bring the healing miracles of Jesus to life today.
The stories of scripture can be difficult to understand. They are translated from another language, another culture, another time. Revd Dr Peter Stevenson provides a fresh way to bring the Bible stories alive, using the healing miracles of Jesus as examples.
The annual Christmas bazaar will start at 1pm on the 24th of November and all are welcome to attend.
Coventry String Orchestra are holding a concert at Holyhead Road URC on Wednesday 4th of July, from 7.30pm – 9.00 pm. The orchestra is made up from young people aged between 7 and 17, all are welcome to attend.
3rd of June 2012.
The Diamond Jubilee Big Lunch is an opportunity for neighbours and friends, old and young to join together to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee over a shared lunch.
All age worship will be held in the church from 10:30am to 11:30am (approx!) followed by a faith lunch. The idea is for people to bring some food to share (a plate of sandwiches, a cake, a bag of crisps, some salad, something homegrown). Tea, coffee and squash will be provided as will sausage and burgers cooked on our BBQ.
There will be plenty of bunting and flags and we’re encouraging people to wear red, white and blue to add to the atmosphere.
We’ll be playing some team games for you to join in or, just sit and cheer. So, why not join us from 10:30am for worship or, from 12 noon for lunch – we’d love to see you.
