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.
