|Bishop of Coventry makes his maiden speech in the House of Lords||7th Mar 2013 | View Full Story | Download|
|The Bishop of Coventry, the Right Reverend Dr Christopher Cocksworth, has used his maiden speech in the House of Lords to pay tribute to the vital role of women in Coventry and Warwickshire. "The Church will need their like to guide its life as our Bishops in the future", he said.
Bishop Christopher also spoke about the great relevance of Coventry's history to the world today.

He concluded by saying, "It is alongside and with our former enemy who is now our friend that we reflect with Germany and our European partners on the impact of war on our continent and share a commitment to work for a reconciled and peaceful future for the world."
