Coventry, St. Marks

Much like the story of Coventry, the story of St Marks is one of restoration and transformation.

Encouraged by the rapid growth of the student population in Coventry, the Bishop of Coventry approached Holy Trinity Brompton in 2016 with an idea. An idea that would plant a ‘City Centre Resource Church’ in the heart of this expanding community with a view to evangelise and transform the city.

St Marks was chosen as the location for this new initiative. Being close to the city centre, many of the student halls of residence and in an area of deprivation and poverty, it seemed like the ideal place. There was just one slight hurdle to overcome – St Marks had been closed for 45 years!

While not being used for a Church, the building had been used for all sorts of purposes, as a medical centre and even for storage! But after a lot of love and attention St Marks became home to our Church and we launched on 1st October 2017.

We quickly grew in number and now we have two gatherings on a Sunday, we run programmes for Kids, Youth and Students as well as a number of Connect groups to build and unite us in community. We run a termly Alpha, providing a safe space for people to ask the big questions of life. We partner with a local charity - Carriers of Hope - and support a number of other initiatives across the city including Embrace, CAP and Covenant and Kingdom

And.. we’re just getting started.

We would love you to join the adventure with us!
