We brought the Exeter Cathedral Playstation 3 enriched service to Greenbelt festival in Cheltenham. The game was played by the congregation throughout the service, as they each contributed to the progress of our journey in the game and as other elements of the worship continued – songs, Eucharist, prayer.
You can see in this video an element of the service where the congregation bury non-decomposable rubbish in an act that admits our sometimes harsh treatment of the land. This sits alongside the creative element of bringing flowers to life in the videogame.
