We invite people of faith to pray for Peace on International Day of Peace 2016, and perhaps to raise money for charities in Coventry related to Peace and/or Reconciliation.
Your prayers will be part of Coventry Day of Peace 2016, a programme run by Coventry United Nations Association and other organisations. Please take part and show the world that the citizens of Coventry really care about Peace and Reconciliation!
If you want us to list your activity on this website, please let us know as soon as possible what you will be doing and where.
If you wish, you can also use your prayer to raise money for our selected charities.The charities are shown on the Coventry Day of Peace 2016 page. Ask your sponsors to use this page to send us their donations.
If you have raised money by taking part in Pray for Peace 2016, please follow this link to pay in your sponsorship, or ask you sponsors to do so directly: bit.ly/CovPeaceDayDonation
