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 Monday

Holy and mighty God, your Son’s triumph over sin and death
has opened to us the gate of eternal life.
Purify our hearts that we may follow where he has gone
and share in the radiance of his glory.
We ask this for the sake of our risen Lord. Amen.
