I arrived as Dean in Coventry in early 2013, and I am still overwhelmed by the beauty of our building and the treasure within it and the extraordinary power of the story behind the Cathedral, ruined and rebuilt.
Our vision for the Cathedral reflects the overall vision for the Diocese of Coventry: Worshipping God, Making New Disciples and Transforming Communities. Our specific vision for 2014-18 is to restore the calling to peace and reconciliation to the heart of the Cathedral community and to see this flow out across our city, our diocese, our nation and across the world.
Here you will find details of services, events, concerts and exhibitions. On occasions we need to close the building – for example, when we need to set up for a major service – so please check the calendar if you are making a special journey.
Coventry Cathedral is one of the world’s oldest religious-based centres for reconciliation. Following the destruction of the Cathedral in 1940, Provost Howard made a commitment not to revenge, but to forgiveness and reconciliation with those responsible. Using a national radio
Life at Coventry Cathedral is more than going to church on Sunday. Following our Benedictine tradition, we consider ourselves to be a ‘community‘. This includes not only regular worshippers, but also paid staff, volunteers and everyone who is regularly engaged
