Church@28

There was a strong turnout for the 'Church@28' service at Chester Cathedral on the Sunday 27th August.

'Church@28' is an informal, fast paced and innovate service which established itself in Middlewich as a format that is attractive to both Church regulars and those with no Christian background. 

The Cathedral Chapter asked for the service to make a one off appearance at the Cathedral. Over 100 people attended, surrounded by the current world class contemporary sculpture exhibition. 

Within the service there was a news review, traditional hymns, two solos from singer Christine Wilson, a time of prayer, Bible reading and a five minute message from Rev Lorraine Reed. 

The news review covered diverse topics including Donald Trump, the life of Dr  Ruth Pfau and the planned tribute to Saltney’s own celebrity cat, the late Brutus. 

The focal point of the service was a fifteen minute interview with the recently appointed Vice Dean of Chester Cathedral, The Rev Canon Dr Barry Wilson. He reflected on his life and Christian journey to date and also looked forward to his new role with great excitement. 
Rev Canon Jeremy Dussek of Chester Cathedral, described the event as a 'significant success'
