A unique place of hospitality, welcome, stillness and prayer
I’m Nicholas Henshall and I’m the Dean of Chelmsford. It is my privilege and pleasure to welcome you to Chelmsford Cathedral’s new website. Here at Chelmsford Cathedral we seek to be a place of welcome and hospitality; a place of worship and prayer; a place where all can find a home.
All of this is deeply challenging at the moment as we continue to grapple with the impact of Covid-19 on every part of our life together. Even now the Cathedral building is open daily for personal prayer and reflection, an oasis and an invitation in the heart of the city.
Whether you live in the area or are a visitor from far away, I hope you find on this website not simply information about a remarkable building, but also an invitation to explore what goes on here – even through lockdown – and how you can be part of that.

and rejoice to be called the children of God;
now and for ever. Amen.
