“This café will start with a discussion of how spiritual interactions with physical spaces clash with our expectations of those spaces, followed by a group Q&A involving the audience.

This discussion will cover graffiti in churches, rubbish at Stonehenge, whether vampires can really enter churches, and more! During the café, we’ll think about how we use spiritual spaces, and what the boundary is between the sacred and the mundane in the past and in the present.

This promises to be a fascinating event for those who are interested in church history, environmental issues, and heritage!”
