Exploring Contemporary Issues

The Cathedral occasionally runs seminars or events that explore contemporary issues. Recent events have explored ageing, dementia and end of life issues.

Hot Topics

'Forgiving your torturers: can it and should it be done?'
Wednesday 21st February, Dresden Room, 4 Canon Lane
10am to 12pm (refreshments included)
Join us for the first talk in this year’s Hot Topic series, through which contemporary issues are explored and discussed. Each Hot Topic session is introduced and chaired by the Cathedral Chancellor, the Reverend Canon Dr Anthony Cane.  During 2018 this series will consist of four talks all connected by the theme of Peace and Reconciliation. For the first talk we will be exploring the concept of forgiveness and are honoured to be welcoming Kemal Pervanic, a survivor of the notorious Omarska concentration camp, set up by Bosnian Serb forces in the early days of the Bosnian War. Kemal now lives in England and is the founder of the transformative Most Mira charity. Booking in advance is essential. Book online by clicking on the link below or by phone from The Novium Museum, Tower Street, Chichester on 01243 775888.

Grave Talks

The Church of England has launched an initiative called ‘Grave Talk’ to encourage conversation about important topics it is easy to shy away from: death, dying and funerals. The mornings will be hosted by the Cathedral Chancellor, supported by members of the Cathedral congregation. All are most welcome to attend - no faith commitment is required. Entry is free, although contributions towards the refreshments would be gratefully received. It would help with the planning and catering to have an idea of numbers. Registers of interest gratefully received by email (, telephone (01243 813584) or a note left at Cathedral reception.
