Flexible spaces for religious conferences

With over 32 meeting spaces you won’t be short of space. Ranging from our smaller meeting rooms, which are perfect for workshops, to our largest space for 450 people – we can help tailor your event to ensure you cater to everyone. You can book multiple rooms if you would like to structure your religious conference so there are sections where everyone is together and others where people branch off into smaller groups for activities, seminars or reflection.
