We usually have lots planned so that we can have fun together while exploring the Christian faith.
Our Junior Church runs on Sunday mornings but there are special activities and events that take place in school holidays too. Continue reading this page to find out more including our latest events for you to join in with.
The garden provides a relaxed and beautiful setting in which to worship and is right next to the Learning Centre whenever an indoor space is required.
We enjoy using the garden space to the full, getting to know God and one another better as we listen to stories and engage with the Bible, enjoy craft and trails and pray together. We hope that meeting outside will remain an important part of what we do, but we also look forward to the time when we are able to reconnect with the cathedral building and indoor congregation.
Guy Harlings garden was our base and the first time we met, we explored the wonderful trees there. On subsequent occasions we searched for autumn fruits and thanked God for the vibrant colours of autumn, creating rainbows of leaves. Muddy Church will resume in Guy Harlings garden as soon as possible, and we look forward to, eventually, exploring some different environments and seeing the group grow and develop.
We look forward to being able to welcome you back to special family events at the Cathedral. In the past these have included ‘stay and play’ Lego days in the cathedral (a lot of Lego and a lot of fun!), Pancake parties in the Learning Centre, ‘Summer Space’ (space to chill and play in the garden) and ‘Light up the night’ (marshmallow toasting, storytelling and lanterns) in Guy Harlings garden.
The Cathedral also has a family’s Facebook page. Do contact us via @chelmsfordcathedral to join the group.
Or email our Children and Family’s minister Jean Elliott for more details.
