Ryan Finnegan 11/05/17  Art, Conflict and Remembering

With its long history and ministry of reconciliation, Coventry Cathedral is pleased to host this exhibition Art, Conflict and Remembering: the murals of the Bogside Artists.

The murals depict key moments from this period as they affected ordinary residents from the Bogside neighbourhood in Derry/Londonderry. They are distinctly non-sectarian and contain strong critiques of violence from all sides.

The exhibition is open to the public from Thursday 25 May to Friday 30 June. Normal Cathedral entrance fees apply. For more information please click the link below.

Anna Laycock 08/05/17  News Story – Archbishops’ Pastoral Letter

Faith has a central role to play in politics and this general election, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York say. In a pastoral letter to the Parishes and Chaplaincies of the Church of England, Archbishops Justin Welby and John Sentamu urge people to set aside “apathy and cynicism” and draw new inspiration from the ancient Christian virtues of “love, trust and hope.”
