Press Release
 New Home for St Catherine's

On 25 March construction started on a new home for St Catherine’s Church in Stoke Aldermoor. This marks another big step forward for a church that has been on an exciting journey for the past eight years. The Design and Build scheme is being carried out by Mayway Construction Limited, a Coventry-based business with over 20 years experience of building and refurbishing churches.

Currently St Catherine's meets in portacabins which have a limited life. The new church should be ready to be occupied this Autumn. The project is being managed by John Scouller (Development Worker with Together for Change) on behalf of Coventry DBF.
