We’re so pleased to hear from one of our recent new partners in this week’s Thought, who write of the need for peace in all of us in so many different guises, and the importance of music in this process!

We’re just two months away from an exciting and varied week of reconciliation in Coventry this summer for young adults (18-25) from around the world! Held from Sunday 29th July to Friday 3rd August, anyone still interested in attending, now’s the time to sign up!

Today’s CCN Thought for the Week features a partner joining our membership this coming Sunday, 29th April, St Clement Danes in London, with a story with a number of close parallels with Coventry’s own.

In this week’s CCN Thought for the Week we share the exciting news of our soon-to-be sister organisation being born!

This Good Friday we hear from Revd Canon Dr Sarah Hills, Canon for Reconciliation at Coventry, about the importance of space – often uncomfortable – for healing and for reconciliation, and reflections on her peace walk in Iraqi Kurdistan during Holy Week a year ago.
This week we’re really pleased to hear from Revd Robert Childers, of the Church of the Good Shepherd, Tennessee, and an active part of the CCN USA Board, with his thoughts on how ready and willing actually are we for healing, as the season of Lent draws towards its close?
