The wisdom that is dispensed by way of sermons preached in the cathedral is not lost for ever – people can pick up printed copies afterwards.
A dozen or so copies of each sermon are kept in a holder in the back of the church.
“This initiative started because sometimes people want to read afterwards what is said in the sermons,” says Dean Jamie Allen.
“Sometimes people can't hear so well, and want a paper copy to take away and study. And sometimes the subject of a sermon is so controversial that people want to read what was said and digest it again.”
Dean Jamie says often a sermon is quite relevant to the ongoing life of the church family, and he enourages those who missed out on the Sunday to call by during the week and pick up a copy.
