The 1,100th anniversary celebrations of the Diocese of Exeter will begin with a 24 hour fast by the Bishop, the Rt Revd Michael Langrish.

The Bishop will begin his fast on Friday evening (February 27) by serving at the open-air barbeque outside Exeter Cathedral, organised by Nightchurch. The barbeque attracts a diverse community, including young people and some who are homeless.

The cathedral will be open from 7am to 7pm on Saturday for all those who would like to join the Bishop in his fast, or listen to the hourly meditations. Meditations will be held on the hour every hour, with Bishop Michael leading the reflections at 11am and 1pm.

Bishop Michael has invited all Christians to join him in a period of fasting this Lent.
