Great Yarmouth Minster will be going green during half term week, with a week of activities and events investigating the science and faith behind renewable energy.
Throughout the week visitors will be finding out more about the area’s links to renewable energy, and how the technology works. Events include visits by Bishop Graham, as well as Climate Stewards, a live broadcast by Harbour Radio, a conscious coffee morning with vegan goodies, special activities for under-fives, and a big Green and Queen Quiz at the end of the week.
Thanks to funding from Scientists in Congregations, all the events will be free, and visitors will be able to explore the issues involved in climate change and renewable energy through both science and faith perspectives.
The Revd Helen Lynch, Assistant Curate at the Minster, said: “We’re hoping to welcome all sorts of visitors, to do some experimenting and creating, and breaking down some of the imagined barriers between science and faith. The renewables theme is particularly relevant here in Great Yarmouth, with so much expertise and industry in the town involved in off shore windfarms.”
Green Yarmouth runs from 29 May to 4 June, with the Minster open 10-4 every day. For more details of what’s on, see the Minster Facebook page.
