A unique place of hospitality, welcome, stillness and prayer
I’m Nicholas Henshall and I’m the Dean of Chelmsford. Here at Chelmsford Cathedral we are living through exciting times as we seek to navigate – like everyone else – through our re-emergence from the pandemic. Covid is going to be with us for the foreseeable future, and we are learning to adapt and evolve in response to the adjustments it brings to our life. The Cathedral continues to be open for public worship and personal prayer, and it has been great in recent weeks to welcome both familiar and new faces to share in the serenity of this special place at the heart of the city.
I’m also delighted that so many people access our on-line resources – including the daily prayer at 7.45 am each morning and Evensong, and our teaching and learning that you can access through this website. You can also join us live each morning in the Cathedral (Monday to Saturday) as well as live on line (every day).
The Cathedral is having a series of drop in events over the Summer. Find out more here.Summer at the Cathedral

Bishop Guli joins Dean of Chelmsford on Pentecost Sunday Pilgrimage Walk.
Lord God, King of the Universe,
you show the bright glory of your reign
in acts of mercy and enduring love:
raise us up that we may sing of your saving help;
