Bishop’s Christmas Message 2018

The Bishop of Coventry, the Right Reverend Dr Christopher Cocksworth, has recorded this year’s Christmas message and with it also launches our new Think Spot project.

Bishop Christopher’s Christmas message explores culture in Coventry. Talking about the cultural events that have taken place this year to celebrate the centenary of the Diocese of Coventry, including concerts, exhibitions and poetry from the Poet Laureate. However, he also notes that culture is more than music, sport and art.

The Bishop also speaks about the darker side of culture, particularly violent crime, youth poverty, hunger and homelessness. He ends his message by calling on the young people of Coventry to shape the culture of the city for the next generation.

This message was first played during Sunday Breakfast at around ten to 9 if you would like to check it out.

With a look to the New Year, our Think Spot project will be broadcast on Sundays, encouraging us to all set aside time to think. It will involve different contributors offering reflections on questions, seasonal events, and news from a faith perspective aimed at 18-35 year olds in Coventry.

We are looking for more people to record audio messages for the project in the New Year. If you are interested, please contact
