Allesley Church support for the Laura Trust campaign
A packed church of all ages, met at All Saints Allesley on All Saints day, to remember with thanksgiving relatives and friends who had died in recent years. Over two hundred names were read aloud in the service, Revd Robin Trew, Rector of All Saints said, 'it matters on All Saints day that we live now in the way Jesus wants us to live, because then we live as if in heaven now and we share with those who have died something of what it means to be “with the Lord”. We remember that Jesus gave himself up for us, so we share that life as we serve others'.
A collection was taken at the service for the Laura Trust, a charity supported by the Coventry Telegraph to try and bring an advisory, bereavement, and support service to those whose children have died. The hope is to open a Laura Trust Centre in Coventry. This seems a very appropriate cause by the Bereavement Care Group who hold a coffee morning in Allesley church hall every Friday morning at 10.30. The service raised £310 for The Laura Centre.
