About: Church of Burn

Put your money where your mind is.

Produced and presented by MBG and Church of the Cosmic Burn in collaboration with The Cockpit
Church of Burn at the Cockpit is the largest annual Ritual Mass Money Burn Event in the world.

In human history, Ritual Sacrifice has been pivotal in the ordering of economic relations and served to create civilisation, itself. We have forgotten this.

"Money gains strength through our obedience. The more we let ourselves be governed by money, the more power we grant it and the more the vulnerable suffer."

The Church of Burn redefines money and recasts our relationship with it. In Ritual it becomes a powerful sacrament – perhaps the most powerful of all. To burn money is to transgress its logic. It is an experience that is simultaneously, both symbolic and real. The act creates meaning that is accessible only through the doing of it.

This year's event is the most extraordinary and expansive money burning event ever planned.
It's in three parts with a short break between each one:

1. SYNOD – Presentations from activists, academics, artists on 'How we save the world'

2. SERVICE – Hymns, Confessional, Sermons, Sex Magic Invocation

3. RITUAL – Led by MBG


18+ ONLY. Some Nudity and sexual references. The Bar will be open throughout the evening, closing at 10.30pm. There will be an extensive collection of merchandise and Art available in the Foyer.

(Note: Polymer notes burn well. But for traditionalists, this will be your last chance to burn a paper £20 before they are withdrawn. You must ONLY burn real money! It's fine to burn £, € or $ or any currency, but it should be the currency that you think of as money. If you just burn old holiday money, your act of sacrifice will be diminished.)

Please support this event and all money burning events at our online shop.
The infamous Burning Issue Magazine – the World's First Magazine for Money Burners and other destroyers of currency will be on sale.
Watch their promo video here.

Sunday 8th December – 6:30pm. Doors 6pm
