The National Cathedrals Conference will take place from 17th to 20th September 2018 in Manchester . This will be the first time that cathedral clergy, lay staff and chapter and council members will all gather under one roof to discuss and facilitate development of a strategic vision for the future direction of cathedrals. Entitled “Sacred Space: Common Ground”, the conference will see delegates gathering over four days. It will be addressed by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York.


To bring together for the very first time, all the key players at every english cathedral.

To listen to the message and priorities of the Archbishops and their vision of the church’s mission for the next decade.

To work together to consolidate the growth in visitors and worshippers.

To learn together from shared experiences and best practice, and to celebrate achievements and new opportunities.
