News and Events


Join the global wave of prayer
10th – 20th May 2018

During the 11 days of Thy Kingdom Come, it is hoped that everyone who participates will deepen their friendship with Jesus, bring other to know Jesus or know him better, and come to know that every aspect of their life is the stuff of prayer.  

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus.  What started in 2016 as an invitation from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.

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 coventryprayerhouse@gmail.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.
