Friends & Partners

A vital network of outreach and support

Communities supporting us and each other, determined to build a kinder world.

St Clare’s at the Cathedral

Tucked between the old and new Cathedrals in the heart of Coventry, St Clare’s is a place of community, of worship and of resource. We are the pioneer church community of Coventry Cathedral, and also a Christian Resource Centre for the city and beyond.

The Friends of Coventry Cathedral

The Friends of Coventry Cathedral unite all those in the Cathedral Community, City, Diocese and beyond, who are inspired by this special place.

Chapel of Unity

The principle of a Chapel of Unity binding the Church of England and the Free Churches together for Christian service in Coventry was born out of the sufferings of war and the ecumenical enthusiasm of the church leaders. The Chapel of Unity is owned on a 999-year lease by a Joint Council. It is managed by a Commission of the Churches Together in Coventry and Warwickshire. Ecumenical services are held each week.
