With more resources, we can do more. Your donations provide funds to support the Cathedral’s work, including:
- Buildings – After over 50 years of constant use our ‘new’ cathedral is showing its age. Investment in the overall maintenance, preservation and improvement of the Cathedral is critical to ensuring that our buildings remain an inspirational symbol to both pilgrims and visitors.
- Music – The Cathedral choir includes 60 boys and girls, who benefit from access to a specialist voice coach and all the latest teaching methods. The Music Department is responsible for the promotion, recruitment, training and integration of all the children into the choir. It is a matter of great importance to us that our choristers, who come from all parts of the City, are able to flourish and develop their musical talents.
- Reconciliation – Our Reconciliation Ministry Team is committed to advancing social justice and peace-building. Its work has involved some of the most difficult, long-standing and sensitive post-conflict areas including Burundi and South Sudan. This marks Coventry out amongst English cathedrals, as having a unique heritage and an internationally recognised role
- Education – Each year over 14,000 schoolchildren visit this site, rich in history and art. We would like to be able to welcome more. The Cathedral offers every pupil a fun, memorable and educational experience. Tours and workshops are designed around the National Curriculum covering subjects at Key stages 1–4 in History, Art, Signs and Symbols, RE and Citizenship.
