This weekend sees the Christmas Dickens Festival hit Rochester. This is a great time of fun and a really good time to visit Rochester if you don't mind crowds!
At the cathedral we expect anything up to 6000 people to pass through the building today. As well as welcome them, in keeping with our Benediction tradition of hospitality, we hope to be able to engage with people and encourage them to pause as they consider the meaning of Christmas.
Today pop down to have your photo taken in our nativity scene as part of Get in the Picture, or wander the building and find some quiet place to meet with God, or listen to monologues from the Christmas story characters, or light a candle for someone you care for or miss particularly at this time of year ....
The opportunities are varied - why not pop down and pop in for a while - it may be the last chance you get to pause before Christmas!
