On 29th September 2019, across the world our partners will join us in celebrating our first Cross of Nails Sunday.
It’s an opportunity for all worship communities involved with the CCN to pray together as one body, and a chance for us all to reconnect our communities with why the CCN matters, why Coventry still inspires, and where the parallels with our own stories lie. Just as Bishop Michael Oulton and St George’s Cathedral, Kingston, Ontario, remind us as they share a bit of their story, in a wonderful video first published the year they joined the network, in 2017:
The central element of Cross of Nails Sunday is a short segment in each partner church’s main Sunday worship service on that day, plus prayers, readings, hymns and other music, and/or talks from those locally whose work in reconciliation inspires, or about which people need reminding.

Watch the video below to find out why the CCN inspires the leaders of our regional networks in North America, South Africa and Germany, and keep an eye on this page for more detail about how your church and community can get involved, and resources that you can use.
