A dinosaur at Norwich Cathedral

By The Revd Canon Andy Bryant, Canon for Mission and Pastoral Care - 23 June 2021

A dinosaur in a cathedral. Will it make you smile or make you frown? There will, of course, be some who feel that this is not the right use of a cathedral and think that this is one more sign that the Church has lost its way. But maybe, this is what Cathedral’s really should be about.

Wherever I go I am met with a real sense of excitement. So many people are talking about it, and everybody I meet seems to want to see Dippy the dinosaur at Norwich Cathedral.

A dinosaur in a cathedral is a wonderful playful idea. It is surely the last thing you would expect to see in such a place and yet what a magnificent setting to visit such an amazing creature.
