On Thursday 15th June 2017 Derby Cathedral will take part in the event by ringing from 7.30 pm - 8.15 pm, following its evening Corpus Christi Eucharist.

BBC Music Day is returning for its third year on Thursday 15 June 2017, celebrating music’s ability to unite communities across generations, and this year bell-ringers have been asked to play an even bigger role. The sound of bells, with their power to bring communities and generations together, was a feature of last year’s BBC Music Day, with over 200 bellringing groups taking part.

This year's theme is the power of music, and the day will feature broadcasts on BBC TV, Radio and digital services from 6am to midnight. Bob Shennan, Director of BBC Radio and Music explains: "BBC Music Day is a unique opportunity for people to celebrate music and musical talent, whether attending one of the many events taking place or tuning in at home."

Derby Cathedral is saddened to hear of the passing of the Rt Revd Michael Perham, former Bishop of Gloucester and the last Provost and first Dean of Derby.

Bishop Michael served the Cathedral for almost six years - first as Provost, and then as Dean - and oversaw the fundraising efforts to acquire and finally open the Cathedral Centre opposite the Cathedral in 2004, which houses an award-winning Bookshop and Café alongside the Cathedral offices.

We are grateful for his ministry and his dedication; he will be in our prayers

Cathedral and University partnership to explore the relationship between science and faith

A grant of £9,450 has been awarded by the Templeton Foundation to the University of Derby and Derby Cathedral for an exciting new project exploring the relationship between science and faith. The project, called ‘From Enlightenment to Entanglement’, draws upon the city’s long heritage of science and engineering, and aims to make connections among scientific enquiry, religious faith and working lives to explore the ‘entanglement’ of all three.

Many of the city’s great 18th century scientists and industrialists were members of church congregations, and their advancements are memorialised on the walls of the Cathedral. By exploring the relationship between their faith and the world they lived in, these pioneering Derbeians discovered hydrogen, calculated the weight of the world and built the world’s first factory. ‘From Enlightenment to Entanglement’ will provide a platform for today’s scientists and engineer to experiment and innovate while reflecting on the philosophy of their practice.

Full programme details will be announced in the spring. The project will include a series of public lectures on science and theology, hosted at the University and at Derby Cathedral, alongside smaller discussion groups, tours exploring the history of Enlightenment science in Derby, and ‘Science in the Cathedral’ sessions. Experiments during Sunday services have been promised!

If you’d like to receive up-to-date information on the project, email Dr Alex Rock (alex@derbycathedral.org) who will add you to the project mailing list.

The Revd Canon Dr Elizabeth Thomson, Derby Cathedral’s Canon Missioner and Project Co-Director:

“This exciting programme draws on the wealth of Derby’s innovations in science and engineering. Derby Cathedral has contributed so much to this in the past, and we cannot wait to provide space for today’s innovators to explore the relationship between science and faith.”

Professor Hugh Rollinson, Professor of Earth Sciences at the University of Derby and Project Co-Director:

“The University of Derby consistently scores highly for its science provision, and we are keen to share this wealth of knowledge and experience with as many people as possible. This high-profile project will allow access to all interested to some of this country’s finest scientists, and through exploring their own relationship between their faith and their practice, we hope to inspire future generations of Derby innovation.”

In My Mind’s Eye is Sarah Sharpe’s title for her exhibition throughout December and January in the Sir Richard Morris Lounge at Derby Cathedral Centre.

After training and practicing as a nurse and a counsellor Sarah changed direction in her late thirties to pursue a lifelong interest in art, winning awards in a number of significant exhibitions. ‘I work in mediums such as intaglio etching, lithography, stitch and paint, striving to make an aspect of the human condition more tangible through image and choice of medium. I am  presently working on a project where I am using the woods as my studio for one full day a week. This practice is highly influential as my senses become more attuned to nature, the seasons and my passion for symbolic images and the internal imaginative process’.

The exhibition will open on 1st December and continue until 31st January 2017, Monday to Saturday, 9am to 5pm, closed Sundays and Bank Holidays.
