Exploring faith through church buildings, art and worship
There is a tendency in some church traditions to view church buildings as an encumbrance to mission, as something that demands huge cost in maintaining and running, and that saps the energy of priests. However, there is another way of reflecting upon church buildings.
Janet Lloyd OBE is on St George’s PCC and is one of the UK’s foremost experts on cathedrals and church buildings. Janet will give a talk on cathedral cloisters. These were originally spaces linking monastic buildings, mostly survived Henry VIII’s Dissolution of the Monasteries. English cathedral communities recognised the practicality of cloisters and experimented with cutting-edge architecture in their building, creating extraordinarily beautiful spaces.
