St Peter’s, Hillfields within Coventry East Team Ministry and Parish

 

St Peter’s, Hillfields, was located at the centre of a large multi-racial, inner-city area. As well as performing ‘normal’ parochial duties, I was for several years Secretary of Sidney Stringer School and Community Association. The School and Community College received much media attention in the 1970s for its innovative approaches to curriculum development, school government and community outreach.

During my time in Coventry I also acted as Chaplain to Murray Lodge, a ‘half-way house’ for young offenders sponsored by the Langley House Trust organization and Coventry Council of Churches.
