Welcome message from the dean

A unique place of hospitality, welcome, stillness and prayer

A very happy new year from us here at Chelmsford Cathedral.
Of course we are all still living with uncertainty, and still adjusting to the impact of the pandemic, but the key message of the 40 days that follow Christmas is that God is with us; that God never abandons us; that God’s love is without limit. And because he chooses to become one of us in the child of Bethlehem, he is present with us now. That is the absolute assurance with which we go forward into the New Year.

Prayer for the Day for Friday

Compassionate God, as you know each star you have created,
so you know the secrets of every heart;
in your loving mercy bring to your table
all who are fearful and broken, all who are wounded and needy,
that our hungers may be satisfied in the city of your peace;
through Christ who is our peace. Amen
