News and Events
City Praise and Prayer is a bi-annual event which draws churches together across Coventry to worship together and to pray with one voice for the Kingdom of God to come in our city. This is very much a ‘combined churches’ event – organised and led by various church leaders – but to date CLM has played a key role in the organisation of the evenings and we have been privileged to be the host venue.
City Praise and Prayer began in November 2013 and each gathering has drawn up to 900 people together from 80 different churches from a variety of denominations, networks and streams. Worship is led on the night by a group of musicians, singers and technicians from across a number of different churches and Bishop Christopher Cocksworth usually plays a key role on the night.
The next City Praise & Prayer Gathering will be at CLM Church on Sunday 29 April, starting at 6.30pm. Hope to see you there.

Our Opening Times
We are normally open 7 days a week by prior arrangement.
As we don’t always have a host available, we advise that you book a slot by contacting the team, especially before bringing a group to pray, and we will endeavor to arrange a host for you.
Our calendar shows when we have a host in the house so feel free to drop in during those times. If you do drop by during one of our hosted sessions and there is no answer to the doorbell please be patient. The host may be in another part of the house or out buying milk!
Regular Prayer Events
We have several regular prayer events happening throughout the month. Please go to our Prayer page for more details. Do you sense God asking you to lead a prayer session or have a passion to pray for a particular issue, theme or people group?
If so please do contact us on 07403 145350 or email us at email@example.com and let us know.
We have a page dedicated to our retreats – click on the Retreats tab above for booking instructions, more information and pictures of the rooms!

The Venerable Bead Lady
The Venerable Bead Lady is at Coventry Prayer House!
The Venerable Bead Lady (AKA Cath Henzell), combines prayer with jewellery making and hospitality. She is based at the Coventry Prayer House in Coventry city centre and will be available Monday-Wednesday afternoons, 3.30 pm -5.30pm and by appointment.
You can drop in for tea and cake, learn how to make beaded jewelry, buy beads and findings, buy her individually hand-crafted pieces, commission her to create a one-off piece for yourself or a friend, or simply hang out and chat.
All this activity is encircled by prayer – Prayer when we begin, prayer as we go, prayer as we complete each piece. We pray for the purchaser/recipient, we pray for the producers of the materials, we pray simply to be with our Maker, as we create. Guests are welcome to join in if they want to, but there’s no expectation to do so.
If you would like to bring a small group or come with a couple of friends for an afternoon or evening, midweek or weekend, please get in touch to arrange a workshop.
