Triple Top Tip Time

Three quick, easy fixes for an eco-friendly life!

  1. Buy British - look for the Union Jack on food produce to keep food miles down and keep more seasonal in your purchases.
  2. Compostable packaging - some packaging which looks plastic can actually be put in the compost bin, so compare the labels before buying.
  3. Kettles - judge mindfully how much water you need for the task and only boil that much. Equally, make sure you don't put too little in and waste electricity by having to boil more.

Recycling those awkward bits and bobs

There are a number of ‘Eco-warriers’ around the city who offer their bins as collection points for the ‘not easily recycled’ items eg crisps packets, bottle tops.

I read Steve and Ruth’s ECO memo with interest.

We had a surfeit of a collection of Walkers Crisp Packets by last Summer.

With the Earlsdon school and Library recycling closing we discovered a lady who collects these. She lives at the end of the other side of Green Lane by the A45 railway bridge.

You would need to make a Saturday appointment when Lockdown ends, but in her front drive are wheely bins for just about everything that cannot be recycled elsewhere.

"Silly little things that we all throw away, but if saved up, make a much greater amount. We just keep putting any stuff that can’t go in council recycling in old cornflake boxes now and I presume money goes to charity or good causes.”

Planning your Visit

A Warm Hello 

The following information is specifically for those planning a visit, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where and When

We meet at the Church Building (details below) for our Sunday Service starting at 10.30am. For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking space and find somewhere to sit before the service begins. When you arrive, you should be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team.

Currently we are not offering tea, coffee and biscuits after the service due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation, but it is hoped we can re start soon.

Plan your journey: 

Open Google Maps

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There is a disabled toilet off the back of church.

Our Service

The main service begins at 10.30am, but when the music is led by our Worship Band, we have a few hymns &/or songs before the service starts. There is then a warm welcome from one of our Stewards. Church news & extra notices may also be given at this time. Our services are typically an hour long, with a mixture of hymns, prayers, bible readings and a sermon. One of our leaders will give the sermon that is bible based and that we can apply to our everyday life. We finish with a final worship song before a final prayer is said. (Sometimes there is an opportunity to receive prayer at the end of the service.)

Getting Connected


Small Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our small groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, morning, afternoons and evenings.


Our groups include:-

  • Tuesday Prayer Lunch
  • Wednesday Fellowship
  • Wednesday Word
  • Dayspring Steel Band
  • Wellspring Café
  • Prayer Shawl Ministry
Check out Small Groups and see if there’s one that you could join, or we can put you in touch with a small group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.
  We hope that whoever you are, you will feel at home at our church.

Best Wishes
