St Laurence’s Church is one of six Diocesan Mission Hub Churches across Coventry Diocese.
We seek to support and resource leaders and churches in the development of discipleship, growing leaders and planting new worshipping communities, with a particular focus on the regeneration of urban parishes in the North & East of Coventry.
Our Hub was commissioned in June 2022 at a Licensing & Commissioning Service. We’re really keen to work and learn alongside any church or leader – lay or ordained – who thinks they might share this sense of calling with us – we’d love to hear from you.
Growing Faith Training Evenings
A termly training evening for anyone involved in leading or discipling children, youth and families – whether you are paid or a volunteer who serves on a team in a church, school or outreach setting.
Each evening will be a chance to connect with other leaders and volunteers involved in children’s and youth ministry from churches – sharing in our joys and challenges. There will be some input and teaching on a specific area, with opportunities for reflection and discussion, hearing from others and telling stories of what we are seeing God to in our communities. Each evening will finish with some worship and prayer, with an opportunity to receive prayer ministry (optional).

Leaders Formation Group
As Iron Sharpens Iron, so one person sharpens anotherProverbs 27:17
We’re a group of ordained and lay leaders who meet together monthly on Thursday afternoons for food, worship, leadership input, character & skills formation and accountability in mission.
We’re also developing a specific Growing Faith huddle in the Autumn of 2023 for those with lead children, family and youth work responsibilities (paid or volunteer) in their churches and schools. Please get in touch to find out more!
Refuel. Refresh. Reignite.
Encounter is our informal monthly evening worship service, usually on the first Sunday of the month, starting at 6.30pm at St Laurence’s Church. As we seek to stretch out and grow in mission, we can only go in the strength and confidence of God’s calling, and the equipping power of the Holy Spirit. Come to be refreshed and refueled.
