Exeter Cathedral to host ‘spiritual’ underwater video game service inspired by Jonah and the Whale – The Telegraph

The video game expert emphasised the importance of choosing an appropriate game for a service. He has previously chosen a video game called Flower to completement church services in which gamers control a flower petal with a single button press and tilt of the controller.

By the end of these sessions, we hadnt only completed the traditional Church of England service, sang hymns, received communion and shared the peace, but also journeyed together in virtual space as well.

Together we had traversed the landscape of the game and created a stream of flower petals that brought an old oak tree back to life with budding leaves.

A post on the cathedral website advertising the event invites visitors to take each others hands and explore a new world in the ancient Cathedral that encourages us to meditate, support each other and journey together.

Cruicially, it adds that the event is open to all, with no gaming experience necessary.

"Simply touch the screen and partake in a different kind of banquet for the soul.
