Canon for Art and Reconciliation - Coventry Cathedral

This is an exciting time to join Coventry Cathedral, as Coventry embraces its identity as UK City of Culture 2021, with plans for a rich legacy. As the Cathedral approaches its Diamond Jubilee in 2022, this senior appointment offers an opportunity to shape the ministry of the Cathedral for a new generation who love the building and enjoy the contemporary arts programme, but may not know its story or its significance. The Canon for Arts and Reconciliation Ministry will develop the creative mission opportunities offered by the unique buildings of Coventry Cathedral which bring together the arts and reconciliation in an extraordinary story, which continues today.

The person appointed will be at home in contemporary arts culture. They will have experience in delivering creative events that engage diverse communities in journeys of imagination, and a calling to the ministry of reconciliation. They will be an ordained Anglican, and may be appointed to a Residentiary Canonry if suitably qualified. We would be especially pleased to receive applications from those of Global Majority Heritage.
