Each Lent, churches in the Diocese of Bristol set themselves an environmental challenge. This year the Carbon Challenge is all about saving and conserving water and we at Bristol Cathedral have developed a free exhibition to explore the issues further.
Bishop Mike and Bishop Lee recently went on a trip to Uganda, which is linked with the Diocese of Bristol, and saw at first hand the issues communities face with gathering and managing their water supplies. Local priest Rev Chris Dobson, who was travelling with Bishop Mike, took photographs of the local community and we are featuring photographs which show the beauty of water as a natural resource.
Alongside that we also have a ‘Particulart‘ exhibition entitled ‘A Stitch in Time’ which helps people visualise the carbon particles in our environment through a display of knitted particles, which has been developed by Clare Bryden.
We are very grateful to both Chris and Clare for helping us with this exhibition. Admission is free – come and visit the south choir aisle.
