Welcome message from the dean

A unique place of hospitality, welcome, stillness and prayer

A very warm welcome to Chelmsford Cathedral!
Currently we are all seeking to negotiate the way ahead as we move forward from the pandemic. That's true in our personal life and in our life together as communities. Here at Chelmsford Cathedral we are seeing the whole of the next six months and beyond as a fluid, provisional time as we work out how best to build on what we've learnt over the last 18 months and what new patterns might emerge in our worship, our learning and our service to the wider community.
For the present, alongside daily Morning and Evening Prayer, and the 8.15 am daily  Eucharist, we are continuing with a single 10.30 am Eucharist on Sundays, with children and young families meeting in our gardens. We have also recently introduced another weekday Eucharist at 10.30 am on Thursdays. This has grown steadily, and now we also offer refreshements afterwards. Everyone is of course welcome and on Thursdays we particularly invite people to continue to wear masks for the protection of others present.

Prayer for the Day for Friday

O God of eternal light, heaven and earth are the work of your hands,
and all creation sings your praise and beauty. As in the beginning, by your Spirit,
you gave life and order to all that is, so by the same Spirit redeem us and all things,
through Christ our Lord. Amen.
