Our community includes not only regular worshippers, but also paid staff, volunteers and everyone who is regularly engaged in work or service at the Cathedral.
Finding out more about faith
As part of a worshipping community, we encourage individuals to explore and learn more about their faith. There are a number of study and fellowship groups available depending on where you are on your Christian journey, including the Pilgrim Course – click here for details.
Action, Fellowship and Fun

Activities at the 10.30am Sunday service
There is an area set aside in the Nave for young families at our main Sunday morning service, where you’ll find a wide range of books to borrow as well as toys and activity sheets reflecting the Sunday themes. Parents are asked to stay close to their children and help them to take their place in worship.
Coffee Tots is a community project based in Coventry city centre, Unit 11 City Arcade. A cafe drop-in for parents and young children providing a relaxing cafe environment offering affordable fair trade drinks and snacks together with a play and craft area for the children. Open Monday to Friday 9.30 till 3.15.

Students from both Coventry and Warwick universities are a welcome and valued part of the Cathedral Community.
The Cathedral is in a prime location to welcome and serve the student population and is committed to doing so. By being a multi-cultural, multi-generational community on campus the Cathedral is a great place to escape the uni bubble. We hope to integrate students into the wider community while also offering some events that are specifically geared to the student community.
Students are welcome to visit the Cathedral building free of charge whenever we are open – and this amazing space can be a good place to pause and reflect, whether you come in faith or with many questions…
We would also love to welcome you to worship with us, perhaps at the 6 pm Sunday service, which offers a variety of ways to engage with God, including both lively contemporary worship and some more reflective services of music and silence. If you’d value being part of a student group for weekly friendship and support, or would like to discuss any of the joys and challenges of finding your way in a new city and a new way of life, we’re happy to be there for you.
Please contact our Canon Pastor, Kathryn Fleming, to talk about how we can help you to find a spiritual family and feel at home here in Coventry. Telephone +44 (0)24 7652 1230, Email firstname.lastname@example.org
A new constitution for the Cathedral came into being in 2000, and this set down the decision-making structures within which we operate, defines the roles of our church leaders and enables members of the community to elect lay (non-clergy) people to represent us on these bodies. The community is served by the St Michael’s Committee which is a statutory sub-committee of the Cathedral Chapter.
The Cathedral maintains both an Electoral Roll (just as any parish church) and also a Community Roll which includes all those on the Electoral Roll and any of the other members of the Cathedral Community who wish to join it.
Joining the Cathedral’s Electoral Roll entitles you to take part in the running of the Cathedral and have a vote at the Annual General Meeting. You will also be able to be married and have your children baptised at the Cathedral. The Electoral Roll is how the Church of England records the numbers of those who belong to particular churches and so it is important that you register if you consider the Cathedral to be your spiritual home. Click here to download a form to print, fill in and return.
If you contribute to the life of the Cathedral but it is not the church where you regularly worship, you may choose to join the Community Roll, e.g. you may serve as a volunteer or work as a member of staff but worship elsewhere. Your registration is also important to us and helps us communicate with you. Click here to download a form to print, fill in and return.
The Cathedral has a branch of the Mothers’ Union, which meets in the Lecture Hall on the first Thursday of each month at 10.30 am. A Corporate Communion Service is held in the Lady Chapel on the second Thursday of each month at 10.15 am. Our Branch Leader is Mrs Evelyn Warwick and our Branch Secretary is Mrs Janet Hart.
