Call and Response; Creative Lenten Programme

Questions are part of every person’s journey in life. What questions are you holding on to right now? Make space for your questions and share them with others. Over a five week period artists will be working in Christ Church Cathedral to invite, collect and pose questions as part of our Lenten journey.
