Mission ideas below Norwich Cathedral’s helter skelter

On 12 August Norwich Cathedral is inviting Christians to join them for an exchange of creative mission ideas and to hear more about the Seeing it Differently project, an 11 day missional event which includes installing a helter skelter in the nave.

On Monday 12 August, 6.30pm-8.30pm Norwich Cathedral is offering an open invitation to join them for an opportunity to share creative mission ideas and to hear something of the philosophy behind their Seeing it Differently project.

Speaking about the event the Rev Canon Andy Bryant, Canon for Mission and Pastoral Care said: "A cathedral may not be the natural home of a helter skelter but that is precisely part of the draw. We will be doing what cathedrals have always done: helping people see things differently and make connections with the things of God.”

“Join us at the foot of the helter-skelter in Norwich Cathedral to share creative and innovative ideas for mission in our parishes. Learn a little of the thinking behind Seeing it Differently and hear how helter-skelter shaped mission is working. How can we make connections with those for whom Church never appears on their agenda? And of course time to experience Seeing it Differently and ride that helter-skelter. Open to all wanting to explore practical mission ideas."

Seeing it Differently is at Norwich Cathedral 8-18 Aug, 10am-5pm (Sundays 12 noon-3pm). Admission free with £2 per ride on the helter-skelter. Alongside the helter skelter visitors will be invited to quietly lie down and look up, undertake a blind trust trail and literally sit inside the Bible. In these and other ways they will be encouraged to see themselves, the building and God differently.
