35 selected works, from the nationally-renowned Methodist Modern Art Collection (of 50 works) will go on show in churches across Coventry this autumn as an Art Trail, entitled Stories of Change: Hope, Faith and Love, as part of the city’s celebration as UK City of Culture.
The Art Trail marks the relaunch of the Collection after a two-year conservation and re-framing project to conserve the works and ensure they will be able to be displayed for many years to come.
The Art Trail will start at Coventry Cathedral and Coventry Methodist Central Hall in the city centre. Then visitors will be encouraged to follow the trail beyond the city into churches in Earlsdon, Balsall Common and Fillongley, which are part of the Coventry and Nuneaton Methodist Circuit.
The Methodist Modern Art Collection Art Trail ‘Stories of Change: Hope, Faith and Love’ will be available to view on selected days from Saturday 4 September to Sunday 3 October 2021.

This exhibition was originally planned to take place over a similar period in 2020 and then again in 2021 but sadly had to be postponed due to ongoing Covid-19 measures relating to the closure of museums and art galleries. We are pleased that it has been rescheduled for a similar period in 2022. Further details on opening hours and the programme will be published later.
Details of further exhibitions in 2022 and beyond will be added as details are confirmed.
