Welcome to Coventry House of Prayer
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, or get in touch, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, use the Contact page or message us via our Facebook page. Please note – we do not currently have a telephone number. The House is run by volunteers – we will do our best to respond quickly, but do not expect an immediate reply.
Many churches and individuals across the city are involved in running the House of Prayer and we welcome people joining in. Though we are not currently meeting at the House, the whole city is becoming a House of Prayer as the church is increasingly called to pray, and this is reflected in our name change from Coventry Prayer House (we have yet to change the name of our website or email address).
We whole-hearted support the Cov365 – Without Ceasing prayer and worship initiative – praying continuously every hour, every day during this year of Coventry being City of Culture. If you can pray for an hour, go to www.cov365.co.uk and book a slot and follow them on Facebook to join the conversation.
“Whilst we’re praying for lives, churches, the city etc. to be changed, our number one focus is the Lordship of Jesus Christ. We believe the Holy Spirit is the initiator and project manager of the initiative; the one who will piece together our humble offerings into something worthy of the Lord Jesus.”
We encourage you to prayer-walk your neighbourhood during the month of June for Coventry’s Open Heaven initiative. Last year every street in the city was covered – lets do it again! Go to https://www.openheavencoventry.org/ for more info, download the App and allocate your street, or any street, then walk and pray!
Coventry House of Prayer Partners with the Eternal Wall of Answered Prayer
We have supported the Eternal Wall since we first heard about it a couple of years ago, but now we have formally partnered with this amazing project! There are over three thousand bricks allocated to Coventry, so they really need more answered prayers to be sent in. You can share yours on their website at https://www.eternalwall.org.uk/testimony. There is a simple process to help you capture all the details.
Following the granting of Planning Permission for the Wall, the team are inviting people to go and visit the land. If you’d like to go and pray there, please email: email@example.com. The site visits are planned for the following dates: Tuesday 22nd June, Wednesday 14th July, and Saturday 14th August. (*Booking is essential* Please note: there is a 45 minute walk each way over uneven, muddy and slippery ground).
Coventry House of Prayer 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. We hope to reopen soon and resume our in-person meetings but meanwhile we are gathering on Zoom. Please contact us for details.
VISIT: There are regular gatherings you can join in with, including our 2-hour daily devotional sessions, Ladies Prayer, or Praying for Coventry. 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 House of Prayer 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 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.

We also have several regular prayer events happening throughout the month. Please go to our Prayer page for more details.
