Welcome message from the dean

A unique place of hospitality, welcome, stillness and prayer

A very warm welcome to Chelmsford Cathedral in this season of Advent.
Do take a look at our Advent and Christmas page of the website for the latest information on services.  There will be short video clips and Christmas lecures on our Facebook page too, and our Advent Calendar will be back on Instagram.  But above all, know that you are welcome to join us both in person and on-line with your family, friends and neighbours as we celebrate Christmas after a deeply challenging two years.

The message of Jesus this Christmas IS a message of peace, goodwill and hope for the world.

Prayer for the Day for Tuesday

Receive at your heavenly altar, O God,
the supplication of your people;
lead us into the way of truth and purify our hearts
that we may come before you,
who are our joy and our gladness;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
