This summer two exciting, major events for the Community of the Cross of Nails will be hosted here in Coventry, the 100th anniversary of Coventry Cathedral and Diocese:

The CCN International Gathering, for 80-100 CCN members, will take place from Wednesday 26th to Sunday 30th September 2018. All members are very welcome (read here for more information), and we’d love to see as broad a cross-section of our global membership as possible (please contact us by the end of May if you are from Africa or Asia and some bursary assistance would help you to attend). The Gathering cost per person is £200, not including accommodation (see below for suggestions).

Hotel accommodation for the International Gathering: the best value and closest hotel is the City Centre Belgrade Plaza Premier Inn (around ten minutes’ level walk), with 4 nights for these dates currently available from under £200, but the City Centre Earlsdon Park Premier Inn, Ibis Hotel Coventry Centre and Ramada Hotel are all around 20 minutes’ walk
