Queen Jesus Productions presents A Space to Bless, live from St Mary’s Cathedral – a radical queer space for contemplation, connection and meditation. Each daily chapter will be streamed at noon, offering a gathering, a text, space for meditation and a blessing for a short time each day – filmed at the stunning St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral, in Edinburgh. The blessings incorporate elements of Jo Clifford’s groundbreaking play, The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven, reimagined in this unique setting – inspired by the building’s use, stunning features and fascinating history.

Created by Jo Clifford, Susan Worsfold, Stuart Platt, Yvonne Waddell and Annabel Cooper.
