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.
In the autumn everyone is warmly encouraged to join in the Big Conversation about shaping the future and dates will be published on our website once finalised.

Bishop Guli releases a statement on the church's response to the Afghan refugee crisis.
O glorious God,
the whole of creation proclaims your marvellous work:
increase in us a capacity to wonder and delight in it,
that heaven’s praise may echo in our hearts
and our lives be spent as good stewards of the earth;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
