The Presidential Address of the Bishop of Warwick to the Diocesan Synod on 25th June 2013 25th Jun 2013 | View Full Story | Download
News Poster I have just had the privilege of spending nearly eight days in Nuneaton, glimpsing the kingdom of God at work in visiting schools, including a special school, colleges, the hospital, a factory providing much needed employment and supporting local youth projects. I have been a judge in Hilltop ( a local estate) got talent. I was playing the Simon Cowell role which I hope you don't think comes naturally to me! I have been encouraged and inspired by what I have seen and experienced there of inspiring worship, making new disciples and transforming community life. There are many examples of churches responding to need in the community, whether it be for those with mental health issues, young carers, the bereaved, the elderly, those in debt, many examples of Church halls providing space for all sorts of activities and events which make a difference to the quality of community life. I have witnessed perhaps especially that God blesses the service of Christians when we work together across denominations. I have in mind the Food Banks, Street Pastors, night shelters for the homeless, in Nuneaton, the Sycamore Counselling Centre and its café and bookshop, in chaplaincy teams in hospital, hospice and N.Warwickshire College. I went to a lunchtime prayer meeting with Christian leaders from 10 different denominations. I know and rejoice that many such things and others are happening in the other deaneries. What is clear is that the credibility of the Church and of our witness grows as we are seen to love our and serve our neighbours whoever they may. (more...)

News Poster It has been a joy to welcome the Archbishop of Canterbury back to Coventry Diocese this week for the very successful Faith in Conflict Conference held in the Cathedral. (And many congratulations to the Cathedral on pulling off such a significant conference.) I also greatly look forward to the Archbishop's return visit on March 15th during his Pilgrimage of Prayer. Archbishop Justin is very keen that people from across the community will join him in prayer at some point in the day. (more...)
