More tee, vicar? Rochester Cathedral installs a crazy golf course
By Mark Perkins on Tuesday, July 30, 2019
Its a question that has vexed the church for decades: how do we attract a younger generation to come to a house of worship?
It seems that the promise of eternal life for good behaviour is not enough these days. That’s why Rochester Cathedral has surprised everyone by installing a crazy golf course within the cathedral in an August summer stunt that could have been lifted from an episode of Father Ted.
Traditionalists aren’t impressed, with one describing it in the Daily Telegraph (obvs) as ‘an act of desecration’.
However, given the stunt has secured blanket national coverage it could be a fairway to heaven to pull in the punters.
