…the Diocese of Coventry was formed and St Michael’s Church became a cathedral. We’re celebrating this landmark in many ways during 2018, not least with the use of this special prayer:

God of time and eternity,
we thank you that all our times are in your hands.
Rejoicing in your faithfulness over the last one hundred years,
we celebrate the life of our diocese:
in stories of faith and hope,
in worship offered, disciples gathered
and communities transformed by your reconciling love.
As we give you thanks and praise,
give us your vision for this place that we cherish,
help us to walk your way with its people
and pour upon us those gifts we need to work with you
that, filled with your Spirit,
your Church may serve you here with strength and joy;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
