Taking ChristChurch's transitional Cathedral services online

From Easter Monday, 11:10 am on 13 April 2020

When lockdown was announced, Dean Lawrence Kimberley had the unpleasant task of standing in front of the transitional cathedral doors in Christchurch and telling the many elderly parishioners that they had to go home. And some of them were furious. Dean Lawrence tells Karyn Hay the story of how he began conducting services online and soon realised it wasn't as easy as it looks. Suddenly everyone was a critic and telling him he needed to change his approach. And he had to keep trying until he got it right.
