Upcoming Events

Fri 20 January 2017

  • We have booked Jonathan Veira, a well known international entertainer, singer and raconteur, who is a Christian, to bring his wonderful one man show to the Heart of England. Jonathan’s evening is a perfect event to use as an opportunity to invite along friends and family who don’t usually go to church. It is a rare thing for one man to keep all ages entertained – but JV does just that! The event will be held on Friday evening at St Laurence Church, and we hope that we can fill the church to bursting with us all and our friends and members of other local churches. Please book the date now! More details and information soon.

Sun 29 January 2017

  • We will once again be holding a Group Education Service focussing on our schools. This will be at 10.30am and the preacher will be the Bishop of Coventry, Rt Revd Christopher Cocksworth. So do please book the date and come to support all our four Church Schools.
