Reverend Billy and the Church of Life After Shopping came to the Institute to catch their breaths on a breakneck Shopocalypse tour of the UK. After an exorcism of the tills at TESCO on Bold Street and a sojourn in the bombed out church, St Luke’s, the Rev and the church all crammed into the Institute and poured blessings upon it and ourselves. We bought some locally sourced and sold cakes for the bishop of anticapitalism and his faithful and inspiring crowd to munch on before they bolted back to the Bluecoat for another evening show. We felt truly holy and really inspired both at the Institute’s blessing and at the evening perfromance. Eternal Life to the Church of Life After Shopping and its prophetic ministering! Here is the Institute In Reverend Billy’s own words and the initial Letter of invitation to Reverend Billy.
