We are a friendly local church based in the village of Binley Woods to the east of Coventry.
We meet on Sunday mornings at 10:30 in the Binley Woods Village Hall. In our worship we draw on the richness of Christian worship styles, especially those from our Anglican and Baptist roots. Our services normally end before 12.00 noon, and afterwards you can stay for a chat.
All are welcome. Whether you want to rejoice and give thanks for new blessings, or sit quietly through the service in God's presence, or seek help and healing, or just want to take a look, you will receive a warm and considerate welcome.
We have Holy Communion around twice a month which is open to all who know and love the Lord Jesus, and there are regular slots with a topic on mission and service and on prayer for healing.
We welcome children. We welcome children of all ages -- we have a supervised table for children, with quiet activities.
Getting to the Village Hall: The Village Hall is on the south side of Rugby Road, with a large car park at the rear. Disabled parking spaces are at the front. Postcode is CV3 2AX. See quick map. Also see on Google Maps.

Lionheart and the Great Pyramid Adventure
The theme of this summer 2022's Lionheart is Lionheart and the Ultimate Gaming Adventure. Look out for the Lionheart posters!
Lionheart is a fast-moving time of activities run by a professional team and designed for children to have great fun as they learn more about God and themselves – no one is bored! The children always have a great time with parachute games, songs, bible stories, drama, crafts, puppets and more. Each day the theme follows the challenges Lionheart encounters, challenges which children encounter e.g. honesty and bullying.
Please check our posts on our Facebook page to get the latest updates.
Lionheart is for Primary School children who have completed their year in Reception up to Year 6 and places are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
It runs from 10 am to 12 noon each weekday, and for the family on Sunday 10:30 to 11:30. The cost is £20 for the week (£5 per day) for the first child and £15 (£4 per day) for each brother or sister in the same family.

Bible Fellowship Groups
Groups for Bible study, prayer and fellowship, meeting in homes …
We are two groups meeting in homes
Currently, one group meets on Monday afternoons, on the second and fourth Mondays of the month, and the other meets on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month.
What do we study?
We use study material from a wide range of sources. Sometimes each group chooses its own topics and material. Other times, all the groups follow the same material, keeping in step together. For example, all the groups recently followed LICC’s Fruitfulness on the Frontline together, and separately we have used Scripture Union study booklets, Open Doors’ material on persecuted Christians, and others.
Our study is informal. We learn together and from each other, using material which supports this approach.
What is a meeting like?
Each group develops its own style of meeting. As well as the study topic, there is time for prayer and fellowship.
Joining a Group
We welcome people who are not members of the Church in Binley Woods. Please contact one of us if you are interested in joining a group:
Fun and crafts for children and adults, a Bible story, a light meal, after school on Friday, every two months …
Messy Church in Binley Woods
is an opportunity to explore God’s Big Story together as a family, through crafts, food, stories and lots of fun!
What happens at Messy Church
We start at 4pm with a variety of crafts around tables and a game. Then we all get together for a short Bible story, and follow with a light meal. We’re usually finished around 5:30 pm. There is no charge.
Messy Church is designed as a family-friendly session. Parents, grandparents, carers are invited to attend with their children (no children may be left unattended) – but don’t worry, the crafts, stories and food will be enough to keep you entertained!
We’re meeting every two months, and the remaining dates in 2022 are 30th September and 25th November. And of course there’s Lionheart Holiday Club in the first week of the school summer holidays, 25th to 29th July and Sunday morning 31st July.
Have a look at our open Facebook Group today to get a feel for what it’s like, and join it to keep up to date with all the latest news and plans! We are also grateful to the Primary School for putting announcements before each Messy Church in their online weekly newsletter.
