Norwich Cathedral and A Helter Skelter

You may have missed it, but it seems that Norwich Cathedral has put up a Helter Skelter…

And people aren’t happy about it…

Dr Ashenden, Missionary Bishop for the Christian Episcopal Church, said the clergy at Norwich Cathedral had been “unprofessional” and were “making a mistake about what a cathedral is good for”.

He said there was no evidence that tourists become Christians and “just to put in entertainment is naff”.

“For such a place, steeped in mystery and marvel to buy in to sensory pleasure and distraction, is to poison the very medicine it offers the human soul,” he said.

Because it seems the Cathedral isn’t for getting peoples attention, and encouraging families to come in? Or does the amount of joy involved just get people grumpy?

Sofa would be happy to see big events set up like this in Cathedrals up and down the country, but lets not stop at Helter Skelters or Crazy Golf. Why not climbing walls, lego tables, and inside gardens?

Or how about a comedy night?

A Look at a Lego Cathedral.

Do you like Cathedrals? Do you like Lego? If you’re around Exeter in Devon, Exeter Cathedral is hosting a Big LEGO® Build, with the aim of building a huge 3.6m scale-model of Exeter Cathedral out of LEGO bricks.

Sofa went along the other week, and took a couple of photos…

Check out the Exeter Cathedral Website, for further information about the project, and how to volunteer.
