From LIz Martin

Psalm 116:1-7

1 I love the Lord, for he heard my voice;
    he heard my cry for mercy.
Because he turned his ear to me,
    I will call on him as long as I live.

3 The cords of death entangled me,
    the anguish of the grave came over me;
    I was overcome by distress and sorrow.
Then I called on the name of the Lord:
    “Lord, save me!”

5 The Lord is gracious and righteous;
    our God is full of compassion.
The Lord protects the unwary;
    when I was brought low, he saved me.

7 Return to your rest, my soul,
    for the Lord has been good to you.

 

Genesis 2:2-3. So the creation of the heavens and the earth and everything in them was completed.  On the seventh day God had finished his work of creation, so he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because it was the day when he rested from all his work of creation.

 

We live in a world which never stops. We’re always on our computers, phones, tablets, TV, games consoles, let alone the other things we do with our time: work, family life, housework, hobbies. So where is there space in our day, and in our week, to rest? Sometimes, the activities in which we engage can be restful; other times, they are a distraction from rest, and we feel more burdened having done them. When I talk about rest, I’m talking about the idea found in Scripture, in the psalms and elsewhere; that idea of soul-care, that deep rest which restores, a letting go of our worries and cares, and allowing that deep part of ourselves to breathe.

Genesis 1 tells us that God created the heavens and the earth, and all that is in them. And we were the pinnacle of this creation, thus accounting for our great worth in His eyes. But God, when He had finished this ‘work’, rested. And so He set a pattern for us too; at the end of our work time, we need to rest. For some of us, it’s not so much finding rest from work, but, as the psalmist experienced, rest from anguish, distress or sorrow.

For us to rest is often for us to let go, let go of our desire to be in control, to plan, and to stop, and, weirdly, this takes some discipline. For me, choosing to rest is a good reminder that God is in control, He know all things, and holds all things together. I can trust Him to take care of the things that are too much for me, or for which I feel responsible. You can rest secure in the character and faithfulness of our God, knowing that you can: Return to your rest, my soul, for the Lord has been good to you.

On Thursday 17th June the Coventry Foodbank marked 10 years of service to the city with a time of praise and worship. Volunteers past and present and many civic dignitaries gathered to recognise the remarkable work undertaken by so many people over the past 10 years in supporting those in most need across our city.

Looking back over the past 10 years, Coventry Foodbank has grown considerably in size, from a small office in Broadgate to the 25,000 square foot Halo Centre in Binley linking with 13 Churches across the city who host and organise distribution centres.

This month the Coventry foodbank will be issuing a food parcel to the 200,000th user; over the ten years £3,000,000 worth of food has been given to people in need.

Coventry foodbank would not have been able to support the most vulnerable in the city without the fantastic support of churches and the dedication of the volunteers. The Foodbank proud of all the volunteers, past and present, and how they have made a positive impact in changing lives and communities in Coventry.

Queen’s Road Baptist Church, one of the founding churches, was recognised by a presentation made to Graham Carpmail for his support and dedication to foodbank over the past 10 years. This presentation in turn also marked the debt of gratitude to all the volunteers of our church and fellowship.

7th May 2021

A further update from Coventry City Council about road closures is as follows:

Dear all

Due to the predicted high winds this weekend we are unable to carry out work with the crane that requires the road and lane closures. Therefore for this weekend (Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 May), there will be no closures and the road will operate on a contraflow system as it currently does in the week.  

This does mean that there will need to be an extra weekend closure to complete the work, and therefore, weather permitting, the following closures will be in place:

  • Saturday 15 May and Sunday 16 May - outbound lane (from city centre) closed from 12.01am on Saturday until 1pm on Sunday. Full closure of Warwick Road, Spencer Road/Avenue and the area of Warwick Road between the junction of Spencer Avenue and Warwick Road from 4pm on Saturday until 1pm on Sunday
  • Saturday 22 May and Sunday 23 May - outbound lane (from city centre) closed from 12.01am on Saturday until 1pm on Sunday. Full closure of Warwick Road, Spencer Road/Avenue and the area of Warwick Road between the junction of Spencer Avenue and Warwick Road from 4pm on Saturday until 1pm on Sunday
  • Saturday 29 May and Sunday 30 May - outbound lane (from city centre) closed from 12.01am on Saturday until 1pm on Sunday. Full closure of Warwick Road, Spencer Road/Avenue and the area of Warwick Road between the junction of Spencer Avenue and Warwick Road from 4pm on Saturday until 11.59pm on Sunday

I will keep you updated if this changes.

Best wishes

6th April 2021

The Tech Team are recruiting new volunteers!

As we emerge from lockdown, the Tech Team are looking for more people to join us to enable the smooth running of our "hybrid" services. We used to be able to operate with two people - one on the sound desk and one on the video desk, but with the addition of streaming we now need to increase that number to five - an additional sound operator, a 'streaming' operator and a camera operator. 

Full training will be provided for any new volunteer - no prior experience is needed and you don't need to already be a technical whizz - as long as you are comfortable with a computer we can teach you what you need to know. You can choose to specialise in one of the roles or learn several - its up to you.

Even after you have been trained, we will ensure that new volunteers are rota-ed alongside an experienced member of the team who will be responsible for ensuring that everything works together, so you can focus on your assigned role. 

Please consider if this is something you would be willing to do to help the church to continue to move forward as we come out of lockdown, and keep our community worshipping together as we have managed throughout the last year. If you would like to know more please contact Jon White, Andy Knott or Don Brown* - we'd love to talk with you more, and we won't hold you to anything, we promise!

* If you don't have contact details for these people email here and we will pass it on.

 

26th March 2021

The church has a very long association with St Andrews House residential care home with many members who have lived there over the years and several members who have been involved in the management and in leading services. They have asked us to share a video about the facility which we are happy to do here.

21st March 2021

Anyone who uses Warwick Road in their journey to or from church needs to be aware of the following Road Closures that are planned.

"Coventry Railway Station improvements – crane on Warwick Road
So that we can safely and quickly get on with the improvement work to the railway station, we need to put a crane on Warwick Road. The crane will be located just south of the railway bridge, near to the Michaelmas Road and Warwick Road junction and it will be used to lift in parts of the new footbridge and canopies.
For the majority of the time the crane is in place, a contraflow system will be used so that single lane traffic can run in both directions on Warwick Road south of the Central 6 roundabout. However, there are times when we will need to temporarily close lanes or the whole road to traffic and pedestrians. These dates and times are subject to weather conditions, but we expect the following closures on Warwick Road: 

Amended Dates

Saturday 24 April and Sunday 25 April - Full closure of Spencer Avenue/Road between 4pm on Saturday until 1pm on Sunday up to and including 15 and 16 May.

Saturday 10 April and Sunday 11 April  - Full Closure of Warwick Road between 12.01am on Saturday until 1pm on Sunday

Saturday 17 April and Sunday 18 April - Outbound lane (from city centre) closed from 12.01am on Saturday until 1pm on Sunday. Full closure from 4pm on Saturday until 1pm on Sunday

Saturday 24 April and Sunday 25 April - Outbound lane (from city centre) closed from 12.01am on Saturday until 1pm on Sunday. Full closure from 4pm on Saturday until 1pm on Sunday

Saturday 1 May and Sunday 2 May Outbound lane (from city centre) closed from 12.01am on Saturday until 1pm on Sunday. Full closure from 4pm on Saturday until 1pm on Sunday

Saturday 8 May and Sunday 9 May - Outbound lane (from city centre) closed from 12.01am on Saturday until 1pm on Sunday. Full closure from 4pm on Saturday until 1pm on Sunday

Saturday 15 May and Sunday 16 May - Outbound lane (from city centre) closed from 12.01am on Saturday until 1pm on Sunday. Full Closure of Warwick Road from 4pm on Saturday until 11.59pm on Sunday

Signed diversion routes will be in place. The closures will be between the Spencer Road junction and the Central 6 roundabout. Access will be available to Central 6 from the north (city centre direction) of the roundabout during closures.

Parts of the crane will need to remain on Warwick Road between the closures and this means that the junction of Warwick Road and Michaelmas Road will be closed for the full six-week period. Access to Michaelmas Road will be via Stoney Road, this will be clearly signed.

21st March 2021

On Tuesday 23rd March there will be a National Day of Reflection, organised by Marie Curie, and for Christians, this will be a day to both reflect and pray. Across the country, churches are invited to be prayerful one year on from the start of the first lockdown. There will be a minute’s silence at 12 noon followed by a ringing of church bells and later a doorstep vigil at 8pm.  
The National Day of Reflection looks to reflect on our collective loss, support those who have been bereaved, and hope for a brighter future.

General Secretary of Churches Together in England, Rev Dr. Paul Goodliff said: “the churches in membership with Churches Together in England want to ‘fan the flames’ of prayer at every opportunity, and I welcome the way in which we can not only remember the past year on this National Day of Remembrance, with all of its challenges and sorrows, but also as Christians bring together remembrance and prayer. Our hope, whether in life or death, is in the mercy and kindness of God, and we join with so many who will pray on the 23rd March.” 

Rev Lynn Green, General Secretary of Baptists Together, says 'A year on, we pause together to reflect.  I would encourage all of us to take a moment on 23rd March to remember and to acknowledge the losses we have experienced, the pain of our communities and the struggles the pandemic has created across our world.  As we pause, we pray in hope to God who calls us by name and leads us  with the promise of perfect, unending love.'

13th March 2021

As a church we have various links with Mission partners in other countries. We have recently had news from Acts Chapel in Liberia which you can see here

3rd March 2021

Before the pandemic, when our Foodbank centre was open, representatives from Christians Against Poverty were regularly present to offer help to those with debt issues. Ian Burton from CAP has sent us an update of what has happened since the situation changed which you can read here.

25th February 2021

St Andrews House is a residential home for older people which many of you will know about. Before Covid they had a waiting list of people to come & stay but now, like most care homes, they have empty rooms. They would greatly appreciate this being made know as appropriate. More details are here.

19th February 2021

Operation Agri is an organisation we, as a church, support. They have a webinar on Monday, 1st March at 7pm.  There will be various reports on projects, including two of Paul Kyalimpa’s (with whom we are in a long term partnership), a recent  video on the Imarika project ( which we featured in our Harvest Service) and hopefully an interview with someone from a project in Asia. Details of how to book your place are here.

17th February 2021

We have not had any previous contact as a church with these organisations but they sent us this information which some might like to see.

"In partnership with Together For Change, The Message have secured funding for a Message Bus that will operate exclusively in Coventry and Warwickshire.

A Message Bus is a double decker bus that is completely refurbished to become a mobile youth friendly space, that in partnership with the local church is a fantastic tool to engage with young people in the local community. When a young person steps onboard a bus they enter a safe space to go as well somewhere full of things to do with their mates, such as playing on games consoles, nail bars, DJ studio equipment and much more. Every young person also gets to hear the gospel for themselves as our teams share the love of Jesus in God slots. For more information, please click here  

A bus for Coventry and Warwickshire has been purchased and is currently undergoing it’s renovation, and we have begun to advertise for the role of Bus Manager/Evangelist.  We would really appreciate it if you would be willing to share the listing for the role with your church family. The listing can be found here

14th February 2021

The 2021 Bible Tour Lent Challenge is a 40-day invitation to take a deep dive into the Bible. Revd Dr Helen Paynter, Tutor in Biblical Studies at Bristol Baptist College, set herself a lockdown project of releasing a video each day, until she had gone through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. We offer these here, in conjunction with the Baptist Union of Great Britain, as a Lent Course for individuals and churches. You can view the entire course here or follow on social media as we release the videos for each day.

12th February 2021

We still do not know when it will be possible to resume having a congregation in the Church and whilst we can be certain that many things will be different to how they were before the pandemic, not all of the details are yet known. One thing we can be certain of is that the way of getting into the main church car park will be different.

Next Tuesday, 16th February, a new road will open near the church. So as before, from the junction above Junction 6 of the Ring Road we will take the slip road down towards the clockwise Ring Road but now we will turn left off it earlier than previously onto the new road (which has two way traffic). This will take us to Westminister Road where we will turn right and then right again into the now two way Grosvenor Road where the car park is at the end on the left. The previous access into Grosvenor Road from the slip road will be closed off.

When leaving the church we need to remember that Grosvenor Road is two way. We can either retrace our route back onto the slip road to the clockwise Ring Road or exit through one end or the other of Westminster Road.. 

10th February 2021

Church Member Anita White works for Global Care, an international childrens charity which we as a church have supported over many years. Anita has asked if we might draw your attention to a new book of studies based on the book of Ruth that Global Care has produced so here goes!

‘Where You Go, I Will Go’ is a 40-day series of Bible studies, reflections and prayers, suitable for Lent (or any other time of year.)

As well as being a contemplative and study resource, this Bible study book also incorporates true stories of the challenges faced by real children around the world, encouraging us to consider what it means to love like Ruth – to choose to walk with someone from poverty and desperation, to a place of hope.

The book is also available in audio format - a download link with all copies purchased. The cost is £7 (free delivery) and you can buy it here (Scroll to bottom that page).

All money raised through the sale of the book will support Global Care's work with vulnerable children in disadvantaged communities around the world.

And one final bit of information - the book is written by Keith and Karen Parr. (For those not familiar, Keith is a former minister of our church).

29th January 2021

The Well Healing Centre in Leamington are arrranging a Listening to God Morning:- an online event:-

"Pain and Suffering, God and the Bible: Where’s the Truth?"  on Saturday 20th February 2021, 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

How, in the midst of life’s storms, are we to make sense of what the Bible says about God’s goodness and love? Too many ‘solutions’ to the traditional problem of evil require us to accept that suffering isn’t really as bad as we think. The Bible, in contrast, acknowledges the deep anguish of our hurting world, and claims to offer a solution that brings healing, peace and hope. This event will unpack the Biblical account of suffering and equip you to reach your own conclusions about its truth and power.

Further details of the event and how to book are available from The Well's website:

 

26th January 2021

We have important news about Coventry Foodbank:- 

From 1st February, the management of the foodbank will move from the Trussell Trust to the organisation Feed the Hungry. They will, however, remain a part of the Trussell Trust network of food banks.

Feed the Hungry is an international charity, with its UK base in Hinckley and offices in 10 other countries. It is food aid charity whose vision aligns with that of the Trussell Trust and food banks in the network. You can read more about what they are currently doing on their website.  Feed the Hungry has strong networks in Coventry, which Foodbank will aim to help build upon to provide the community with an even greater service.

They will also welcome back a familiar face in the form of Gavin Kibble (a founder of Coventry Foodbank), as Regional Operations Director at Feed The Hungry with direct responsibility for Coventry Foodbank.

Day-to-day food bank support will continue as before, with people struggling to afford food still able to access emergency food at the foodbank’s 17 centres in the city. But in the future people will also be able to access a wider range of support with business mentors, work clubs, clothes recycling, and advice on welfare, debt, health and wellbeing.

Graham Carpmail, manager of our Foodbank Distribution Centre, has agreed to become a Trustee of the Feed the Hungry organisation.

 

9th January 2021

In view of the present high rates of Coronavirus infections the church leadership has decided that a plan to re-open our building for worship on 17th January cannot go ahead. (This decision has since been affirmed by a recommendation from the Baptist Union). Services will continue to be streamed each Sunday for the foreseeable future and the question of returning to the premises to worship will be kept under review

8th January 2021

It goes without saying that the pandemic in general and lockdown in particular can cause issues for all of us. You might like to consider these free courses (on Zoom) for yourself or for someone you know.  (For more information about the organisation running the courses please email us).

8th January 2021

Inevitably some people are seeing the roll out of the COVID Vaccine as an opportunity to scam people. Please see this warning from the NHS and West Midlands Police.

14th December 2020

The time of Samuel David as Intern in our Jordan Well project is coming to an end and we have two videos to show  and tell what has been achieved. Firstly a collation of pictures which is here (2½ minutes) and a detailed interview with Samuel by Andy Ransberry can be found here. (30 mins). And finally we also have a video of the song "Cornerstone" which the Jordan Well group made for use in our Sunday worship, here.

 

13th December 2020

Opening the chapel for congregational worship.

The Diaconate has decided that assuming that COVID regulations (which are long and complicated in relation to worship services) or other factors do not change, the Chapel will be open for a congregation to worship with effect from Sunday 17th January 2021. It will not be as it was in the past due to the regulations but, of course,  everyone involved will endeavour to make it as helpful as possible.   Being present will be a very different experience to what it was before the virus with one way systems, masks, no congregational singing and no mingling of households.

Numbers will be limited, particularly at first, so we will implement an advance booking system, details of which will be publicised in early January (No bookings can be taken before then.)  We would like to emphasize that the services will continue to be streamed as they are now so there is no pressure to attend if you are not yet comfortable with the idea. If you have been joining our services from somewhere not local to Coventry you will be able to stay with us. Please keep watching the website for more information in the New Year.

 

3rd November 2020

Road works continue around the church and this will affect access to the main car park this weekend. We have been advised as follows

"The work for new road surfacing and markings is scheduled to take place between Friday 6th and Sunday 8th November 2020. subject to weather conditions. The working hours are between 8.00 and 16.00. We will maintain access to Westminster Road and the car parks next to Grosvenor Road and Warwick Road at all times, via a diversion route between the city centre, junctions 6 and 7 of the Ring Road on Westminster Road and Regent Street to enable us to carry out the work safely. Access to Grosvenor Road will be for "restricted access only" and primarily for residents. Existing on-street parking will not be maintained on Grosvenor Road."

From other information received earlier, we know that when the new link road from Westminster Road to the northbound slip road is opened, the current access from the slip road into Grosvenor Road by QRBC will be closed.   In Grosvenor Road, the existing contraflow lane for cyclists heading for the city centre will be removed along with the islands and parking bays, and the road will be re-marked to permit two way traffic.   We believe there will then be no parking allowed in Grosvenor Road, and access to QRBC will be via (the new link road if required), Westminster Road, and Grosvenor Road in the opposite direction to “normal”.

Therefore, please note that (a) access to our front car park may be temporarily restricted, and (b) Grosvenor Road may suddenly become two-way, so we will need to look right as well as left when leaving the front car park.

Please exercise extreme caution if and when you are visiting the church building over the next few weeks.

 

2nd November 2020

This year instead of a Light Party as alternative to Halloween we encouraged people to follow a Light Trail around 16 Coventry Churches. We had a good take up for this across all age groups. Thanks to Sarah White for leading this event. Some people who were not able to participate have asked if they could see the photos that had to be spotted in the windows of the various churches so here they are. You will need to click here and then come back and click here to see the rest.

BREAKING NEWS from Sarah  "We're going to do a Nativity trail similar to this Light one. But we plan to ask members of the congregation to draw or paint cartoon style nativity characters that we can then use and put up around the churches again"  Watch out for more news about this shortly in our daily Updates

One for the diary

8th October 2020

Queen’s Road Foodbank opens again

We are pleased that we have been able to open our foodbank again on a Monday 10.00 -12.00, joining the other 11 centres in the City who are providing an emergency food parcel to people needing support.

People in need of help can obtain a voucher from care professionals, such as doctors, health visitors, social workers and the Citizens Advice. This voucher is then exchanged at one of the centres for a prepacked food parcel. We are also able to issue a voucher in emergency situations.

Trussell Trust have worked with nutritionists to develop a food parcel that contains sufficient nutrition for adults and children, providing at least 3 days of healthy balanced meals for individuals and families. We also provide essential non-food items such as toiletries and hygiene products.

If you would like to provide practical support with donations of tinned meat, fish or vegetables, long life juice, squash, cereals, tea, coffee and packet mashed potato this would be would be appreciated. Financial gifts would also be appreciated.

Please pray for our team, for protection and good health as we set out to meet the needs of the many people in our City who are finding life really difficult at this time.

8th October 2020

African Pastors Fellowship (APF ) is an organisation that we as a Church support. We thought you might like to see this short video about their current activities.

22nd May 2020

Open Heaven is an initiative in the city of Coventry, uniting churches from every denomination, network and stream, to prayer-walk every street during the month of June 2020.

As we unite together in prayer, we believe we will see God move here for His glory. 

We invite you to be involved!

Some members of the fellowship of QRBC are planning to take part and we welcome and encourage others to do so.

Prayer-walking will be done as individuals or pairs in strict adherence to Government safety guidelines, and you can choose to cover as few or as many streets as you like. You can even be involved if you are in isolation at home or are otherwise unable to go out.

If you are interested and would like more information about what is involved, please contact Sandra Hobley or Jan Fisher or email

Full details are available on the Open Heaven website

 

1st November 2019

The Light Party, an alternative to Halloween is one of the most attended events of the year at QRBC.  Once again the event was brilliantly imaginative and well organised by the team. So many people were involved in making it happen, and it was lovely to have so many of the young people helping too. With a Glow Disco, Face painting, hot dogs and drinks, biscuit decorating, many crafty activities, apple bobbing and other activities there was plenty to do. Over 300 people came along - it was great to celebrate the light rather than the darkness together.

 

 

18th April 2019

Last Saturday we held our Love Event with activities for all of the family. Number attending were, in all honesty, a bit disappointing but those who were there  report having had a very good time. The creations in the photo were by Collins Chabala, one of our Deacons.

 

25th March 2019

Please note that there will be no service at 6.30pm next Sunday ( 31st March 2019) due to a significant part of the usual evening congregation being at the Church Weekend Away.

15th March 2019

Rev Neil Martin writes:- I begin this article with a confession that I believe is appropriate at this time. My confession is that, at times, I fall into the category of a walking stereotype of a man. When I'm in the kitchen, I'll walk around, open all the cupboard doors to find something, and then yes, I do, I wander off, and leave them all open. I can spend 20 minutes looking through cupboards for something, only to have Liz wander in, look in the first drawer I was at, and produce the searched-for item. You see, I am a cliché: without someone to help organise me, I would have no social life. So, with that in mind, I have drawn together a group of fellow sufferers of Male Stereotype Syndrome (MSS), to organise social events that men who suffer with the awful stigma of stereotypitus may attend. (Please note all men are welcome, including those who do not suffer with MSS.) Please find the dates of planned activities below, with the names of the relevant organisers. Please come and talk to me  or email if you have any questions. The first dates are:-

Thursday 21st March at 7.30pm                              The Old  Windmill pub

Monday 8th April at 7.30pm                                    Curry House (contact Iain Colville)

 

15th February 2019

Just a few weeks ago we launched an appeal to raise money to buy a motor bike for one of the workers at Acts Chapel, Kakata, Liberia - one of our partners overseas. An amazing £798.50 was collected by QR to send to the church to purchase a motorbike for £640.00. The appeal is now closed. The extra monies will be use towards replacing parts, fuel etc. Thank you for your support.

21st December 2018

As usual in the period before Christmas lots has been happening.  At a recent Girls Brigade event the audience were treated to some music items and a poem acted out by the Explorers. Then the older girls performed 'Babushka'  - a Russian tale about a grandma who met the Three Wise Men and then went on her own quest to find the Christ child.

Well done everyone!

 

20th December 2018

Hundreds of shoeboxes for the Operation Christmas Child appeal have been collected from the church today and taken to the processing centre in Whitley where they will be checked and packed into cartons and ultimately shipping containers that will take them to children who have very little.

The shoeboxes were from the church community and others, including schools, who used QRBC as the collecting point for their boxes.
