Angel Festival

The Minster is dedicated to St Michael and All Angels – here is an image from our east window

This year we decided to celebrate Michaelmas is a very different way by inviting groups and schools and individuals to contribute an angel or angels to our Festival. And what a collection we had over 500 Angels in Church from 27th – 29th September. It was an amazing event celebrating human creativity and imagination.

The word “angel” means messenger and we wanted people to hear loud and clear that they were welcome in their Minster . It was wonderful to welcome so many visitors over the weekend.
