City Praise & Prayer - save the date!
Over the last eight years we have been meeting together as churches across the city of Coventry, twice a year, for a gathering of praise, and to pray for our city.  The last three such ‘gatherings’ have been online.

We are delighted that in-person ‘City Praise and Prayer’ is planned for the evening of Sunday 14th November 2021

To ensure appropriate distancing, in-person numbers will be limited, and the service will be ticketed. The event will hopefully also be live-streamed, so people can participate from home if they wish. More information will follow soon.
Chat with refugees
Can you speak English? Together for Change are running a training session for new volunteers to help refugees with their English language skills, including conversational English.

The session is at 7.30pm on Tuesday 19th October at St. Peters Centre, Hillfields, CV1 5NP
