    As one of Coventry’s most historic buildings, St John’s holds a special place in the heart of the city. Situated on the corner of mediaeval Spon Street, the parish stretches to the west of the city centre, covering around 5,100 people including many shops and businesses; from the Lower Precinct and IKEA to family firms in Spon End, along with the Sky Dome and surrounding entertainment area.


Being a city centre church means we have the opportunity to welcome and serve people from across Coventry, as well as visitors from around the UK and the world. However, looking after a Grade I listed 14th century building, serving people as a place of worship, a historic site and a centre for the community presents many challenges. So we are always looking for people who would like to contribute their time, talents or raise funds to help support St John’s.
