Peterborough Cathedral events will be asking the big questions

More news, no ads


T.rex’s eating habits are not the only killer question raised by the Natural History Museum’s dinosaur exhibition, which is on show at Peterborough Cathedral until September 3.

Eminent speakers will be addressing some of the other questions that may be on the minds of visitors, with two talks and a podcast this month.

Tony Juniper, Chair of Natural England, will be addressing the question ‘What’s really happening to our planet?’ when he speaks at the Cathedral on Tuesday, August 23 at 7.30pm.

On Tuesday, August 30 at 7.30pm, the question for the Rev Canon Andy Bryant of Norwich Cathedral will be ‘In the beginning God created… the dinosaurs?’.

GodPod, the regular podcast from theologians Graham Tomlin, Mike Lloyd and Jane Williams, will present a special dinosaur-themed issue, available online from Friday, August 5. They will be joined in their discussion by Canon Steve Benoy of Peterborough Cathedral who has organised the events.

He said: “I hope this series of talks will help people to dig a bit deeper and consider questions about God, extinction, our purpose on this planet.”

Tickets are £10 plus a booking fee and are available via www.peterborough-cathedral.org.uk for tickets or on the door.
