“As we approach the end of the present academic year, it has been a pleasure working with you again. Having used Warwick Road United Reformed periodically over the last 18 months you have provided a safe and secure working environment with particular attention to public safety and welfare. The facilities, accommodation and services provided by yourself and your team, have been and continue to be excellent for the needs of JB Skills Training. I am also appreciative of your ability to accommodate my organisations needs at short notice, and your ability to ‘bend over backwards’ to facilitate our requests, including scheduling and attendance.”
Trevor Robinson, Functional Skills Delivery Manager, JB Skills Training, Sunderland.
“Warwick Road URC is a most useful and extensively – used venue for music. It’s excellent acoustics with organ, grand piano and moveable seating is a huge benefit. I personally have recorded many times for BBC radio and television, recorded CDs, and promoted concerts on behalf of Coventry University and Coventry Cathedral. The venue is in high demand and needs booking well in advance by groups.”

Artistic Director Coventry Cathedral Chorus,

“Many thanks for the hospitality and facilities provided by yourself and the Church Centre. As a growing training company we look for the right environment for our courses, and we need to take into account that our students are often from neglected areas of society that encounter employment barriers. From single parents, non-English speakers through disability to discrimination. The centre promotes a relaxed environment for training, our students feel comfortable, and it is ideal for our purposes.”
Steve Machaeson, Employability & Skills Coach, The Square Metre Ltd.
“Over the last few years we have been in a fortunate position to be able to use Warwick Road United Reform Church for our BA Music classes in music performance, including music workshops, and evening and lunchtime concerts. We have found the team at the Church always incredibly supportive and helpful in ensuring that we have a great experience. Our music students have enjoyed making music and learning in the space and have always felt valued by members of the Church.”
Dr Tom Williams, Course Director, BA Music and BA Music Performance, Coventry University.
“The Belles of Three Spires Ladies Barbershop chorus, has been sited at Warwick Road United Reformed Church for almost 18 months and have found it to be our best ever home. For rehearsals and concerts the venue is perfect – both in terms of size and environment. It easily houses a 70 plus choir, storage for cumbersome risers and space for our audiences at concerts, through to the fantastic sound and acoustics that work exceptionally well for all types of music. We’re also supported constantly by the staff team when flexible solutions are required which has been extremely helpful”
Liz Gascoigne, Chairperson, Belles of Three Spires.
