The foundation stone of the new church was laid by Lord Iliffe, with the then vicar, Rev Bill Wilson in 1938. After the Coventry's bombings in 1940 King George VI visited the city to get a first hand picture of the damage. He visited the new brick church, which was being used as a casualty clearing station. Some time later a plaque was laid in the church floor to commemorate his visit. Come along and learn about the history of the church and area.

Tours will be available on demand. A children's fun trail quiz as well as craft activities will be taking place.
