This is an active and large Baptist church. The church has a long history going back many hundreds of years and has been in it's present location since 1884.

Extract from Queens Road Baptist Church website:-

As Coventry grew, the church - now led by William Henderson - grew too. He had worked as an evangelist after his conversion to Christ, and the church moved its worship services to the present building in Queen's Road in 1884. A deacon who was also a builder, John Worwood, saw to the new chapel - with its moveable central pulpit, gallery, 800 seats, and tower (the organ came later!) Henderson, and three of his successors, went on to teach theology in various colleges, while Queen's Road attracted people prominent in Coventry industries (watch-making, silk-weaving, and so on).

The church continued to be popular! There are people in the church now who still remember the need to put extra chairs in the aisles on Sunday evenings in the 1920s; in 1936, another church was established in Hearsall.

The mid 1990s saw Mike Fuller as Senior Minister and then seeing in the new Millennium and up to the end of 2007 Grenville Overton was Ministry Team leader. He presided over the extension and refurbishment of the church premises and many other developments to make the church more relevant for the 21st Century.
