Lent & Easter Services

Lent & Holy Week Services

We warmly invite you to join our Lent & Easter services. Our full worship calendar can be found here.

Ash Wednesday

12pm Ashes to Go

“Ashes to Go” is about bringing spirituality, belief, and belonging out from behind church doors, and into the every day. world It’s a simple event with deep meaning, drawing on centuries of tradition and worship to provide a contemporary moment of grace. We will meet at 12.00 noon on Ash Wednesday 2nd March in the Cathedral Ruins for Coventry’s own Litany of Reconciliation, after which you are warmly invited to stay to receive ashes (marked on your head in the sign of the cross) as a symbol of God’s grace enabling a new start for each one of us.

7.30pm Eucharist for Ash Wednesday

Organ Meditations – Sundays

4pm 6th March – 10th April

Join our Evensong every Sunday afternoon during Lent for a special series of organ voluntaries offered as Lenten meditations before and after the 4pm service. Everyone is invited to listen and pray in silence. To reflect the solemnity of the season, we ask that there be no applause.
