Welcome message from the dean

A unique place of hospitality, welcome, stillness and prayer.

A very warm welcome to the Chelmsford Cathedral website.

Here at Chelmsford Cathedral, we seek to be a unique place of hospitality, welcome, stillness and prayer. We meet here to pray three times each day and that frames our work together. Much of our worship is available to attend both in person and on-line and it has been wonderful to see a whole new virtual community gather around the Cathedral. Visit our regualr worship page.

And whilst prayer stands at the centre of the Cathedral’s life, this special building is a space for everyone, hosting a vast range of cultural events, exhibitions, and social out-reach projects. at the heart of civic life, and invites people of all faiths and none to go on a journey together as we seek to build a community where all can flourish together.

Prayer for the Day for Tuesday

King of the Universe,
whose wisdom gives order and fruitfulness to the earth:
help us to respond trustfully to your call,
that being drawn into the unity of your kingdom
we may continually praise you
for your providential care;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
