Paul and Marian were invited as a combination to the United Reformed Church in Potter’s Green, Coventry. Paul had to lead the service as well as preach. Having never led an entire Presbyterian Congregational service before this was a little daunting, but a lot of fun too!
The building is opposite the main 32 bus route bus stop and has its own car park so it is ideal for folk who don’t live walking distance. Unfortunately it is a bit invisible as it is not so obvious as their old brick hall, which appears on the corner and if you blink you’ll miss it. So don’t blink! This is a church and congregation not to be missed.
To my shame I forgot to photograph the lovely interior. As a nicely kept and organised place you would never know it was about 200 years old and the people are a whole range of ages. Upstairs there is a lovely old style balcony that I’d love to see full and there is without doubt the presence of God in the meeting. Yes, this is one of those churches you could safely take a friend to… but print off my pictures to make sure they can find it!
On a closing note I was encouraged to discover that Derek, pictured above, invited the local bikers to the service. Being a glorious weather day there was no chance of them coming, the twisty roads are calling, but the fact he was so biker friendly is worthy of note.
