Open House

Open House is a series of conversations for Lent 2021. The events will take place at 8pm on Monday evenings starting on 1 March and continuing throughout March 2021.

The idea is to shine a spotlight on our unique joint foundation by bringing some of our academics into the Cathedral to talk about their work. The purpose is to offer an opportunity for intelligent conversation to our community that is educational but light touch.

We hope this will offer a chance for people from the Cathedral congregation and the Diocese we serve to 'meet' members of the wider Christ Church community and learn about some of the exciting research taking place at Christ Church.

The conversations will take place in the Cathedral, with appropriate social distancing measures in place. The events will be broadcast on our YouTube channel and last about 45 minutes.
