Chelmsford Cathedral's response to coronavirus

Following a decision by the national church on 22nd March, the Cathedral can no longer remain open for private prayer. It is vitally important that we do everything we can to minimize the risk of Coronavirus infection, and this is a necessary part of our response. However, the Cathedral is more available than ever on-line, and we encourage all visitors to this website to explore the resources available.

The Dean of Chelmsford says:

‘Throughout the current crisis the situation changes from day to day and we have to respond accordingly.  We know just how much the cathedral is valued as a special space in the heart of the city by people across the community of all faiths and none. Even though the Cathedral doors are now shut, members of the clergy team continue to pray daily for the city, the county and the whole region which we seek to serve, which stretches from Saffron Walden to Southend and from Cannning Town to Clacton on Sea.

Please visit the 'Church at Home' page. You can find it just below the Home screen button. This is a real hub for a whole range of resources that we are making available to help people sustain a regular pattern of prayer, share news and support one another, and to keep in touch with new developments. The Sunday Newssheet is already available online and hundreds of people receive it by email. Do contact the Cathedral Office is you want to be added to the email list. We are also very happy to post the Newssheet out – again contact the Office if that would be helpful.
