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 Friday

Lord God, creator of all things,
who in your loving-kindness and care
meet our human needs:
with the dawn of each day
help us to set our hearts and hope upon you,
that we may show you in the world
as the universal and eternal king;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
