A praying Christian Community at the heart of our city

Welcome to Coventry Prayer House (under construction)

A centre for Christian prayer and worship at the heart of Coventry.

We are currently closed to the public due to the Corona virus but if you’d like to send a prayer request, send a text or call 07403 145350 and leave a message, or email coventryprayerhouse@gmail.com.

Many churches across the city are involved in running the Prayer House and we welcome people joining in.

Prayer for Christian Service in Coventry

Prayer for Christian Service in Coventry

The Chapel of Unity community has set up regular monthly prayer sessions to support Christian social service across Coventry.  These are normally held in the Chapel of Unity from 4 pm to 5 pm on the first Monday of the month (excepting Bank Holidays).  All who wish to pray with them will be welcome!

To build up a picture of what is happening citywide, so that we can be united in prayer support, each month they are inviting a representative from a city church or Christian organisation to tell them about their involvement in serving the needs of the city (about 20 minutes) before they spend the rest of the hour praying for those projects.

In the present situation, they are obviously not going to be able to continue Prayer for Christian Service as normal.  Instead, their plan is to invite guests from the various Christian ministries to send in their current prayer requests, which we will post on our prayer page so that the prayer can continue far and wide in whatever ways are possible in these circumstances.

For more information contact: John Lloyd (Chapel of Unity Joint Council co-chair) at jwlloyd49@gmail.com

Get Involved

Coventry Prayer House is a unique project in Coventry providing a place where we can come together with unity of purpose to seek God, pray and intercede for our city, nation and the world.

VISIT: There are regular gatherings you can join in with, including our new, 2-hour daily devotional sessions, Ladies Prayer, Praying for Coventry, or ‘Celtic style’ contemplative prayer.  Come and pray by yourself or with a group.  There are lots of rooms available, plus a small kitchen for making snacks or hot drinks.  Evening visits can be arranged.

VOLUNTEER: Coventry Prayer House is entirely run and managed by loyal volunteers.  As well as a dedicated group of Prayer Supporters, we have a team of Hosts who make it possible to open the House daily, by being available to let people in, show them around, and provide hospitality for all visitors.  They also pray during their time there – some even tend our garden, tidy up and clean the House!  We welcome people getting involved, so if you would like to join our Host Team, or help in another way, please get in touch.  Training and guidance is provided.

We need your help!

It costs £600 per month to run the Prayer House.  We receive less than half this amount from regular giving.

A project of Hope Coventry, the Prayer House receives no funding and it is therefore totally dependent on donations from individuals and city churches. If you appreciate the work of the Prayer House in calling the the city to prayer, and would like it to continue, please prayerfully consider supporting us.

You can make a financial donation towards the work of the Coventry Prayer House by using the donation box or clicking on the donate button below.

Regular giving by standing order helps us plan for the future and we would like to encourage you to consider supporting us in this way for 6 or 12 months.

Hope Coventry

HOPE Coventry exists to grow a connected church in Coventry that demonstrates the love of Jesus for the benefit of the city. It does this by supporting initiatives that connect the churches together and projects that meet the needs of the vulnerable. You can read more about the variety of the projects that HOPE Coventry supports, from the Winter Night Shelter to the Prayer House, by visiting the individual project pages, and you can contribute to these projects on their  donate page. They also seek to connect the church in Coventry by publicising events and projects that happen in and around our city: see their fortnightly e-newsletter and their events page for more information, or contact them  to tell them about your event. Their latest page gives an in-depth look at updates on a variety of activities.
