We are very sorry to hear of the death of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and send our condolences to HM The Queen and all the Royal Family. Like many other Churches around the country, St James will open for private prayer  

The Church will be open for private prayer on Saturday 1pm to 3pm and Sunday 2pm to 4pm

You can sign the Church of England book of condolence using this link or you can go to the Coventry Cathedral Facebook page and light a virtual candle

Remember, O Lord,

your servant Philip,

who has gone before us with the sign of faith

and now rests in the sleep of peace.

According to your promises,

grant to him and to all who rest in Christ,

refreshment, light and peace;

through the same Christ our Lord.

Good Friday is the most solemn day of the Church’s year. We enter into the darkness and dereliction of the cross as we contemplate Jesus. As today also makes clear, even in the midst of the horror of the cross, God’s love is poured out in Jesus’ death.

We will have a service of Reflection for Good Friday at 2pm which will be live streamed on our Facebook page
