Join us for Meeting for Worship:

As Covid restrictions continue to evolve, Quaker Meetings are considering if, how and when to offer meeting for worship and other services, in accordance with government guidance and advice from CEQ trustees and Britain Yearly Meeting. Please check directly with Meetings before travelling.

Coventry is a lively and active meeting. As well as Meeting for Worship on Sundays and Wednesdays, we also hold various smaller interest groups in areas such as study, spiritual practice and singing. We are a diverse group, friendship and the social aspect of our meeting is important to us.
