Church set to display robots, astronaut suits and space toilets to mark moon landing anniversary


A total of 14 church projects across the country have been awarded £70,000 under the Scientists in Congregations scheme.

It’s part of a news outreach scheme to bring younger people to church, promote the unity between science and faith.


Lichfield Cathedral in Staffordshire has revealed it will host a programme of services and events inspired by the historic space moment.

Peter Walker, the cathedral’s artist in-residence, will transform the medieval building’s tiled floor to look like the moon’s surface this summer.



Ely Cathedral and Cambridgeshire will also be joining in with the celebrations. It’s hoped the variety of events will attract youngsters to take and share pictures of some of the country’s most ancient cathedrals.

A seven metre diameter lunar replica will hover above Ely Cathedral’s nave.

Organiser Vicky Johnson, the Canon of Ely Cathedral told The Sunday Telegraph: “It’s entirely for the millennials.”

She added: “It’s particularly about creating spaces where people can ask questions and wonder about their place in the universe and that’s a key thing millennials do.

“They like authentic answers.”

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?

If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
