Reopening of Church Buildings for public worship & weddings
You need to keep an even closer eye on this website so as to know where and when services
will be taking place. As most of our clergy are over 70 and some shielding,
it may not be possible to have full services straight away.
needs your help
is a holy place of global significance where worship and pilgrimage has been part of daily life for over 1,400 years. Since the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, the Cathedral has lost over £2million of income due to lockdown restriction, with no income from visitors, the Shop, or the Cathedral Lodge hotel and conference centre. Even when lockdown ends, the financial pressures on the Cathedral are likely to persist for some time. Please consider donating to help secure the future of the Cathedral during the pandemic and beyond.
Prayer for this week
by the obedience of Jesus
you brought salvation
to our wayward world:
draw us into harmony
with your will
that we may find
all things restored in him,
our Saviour Jesus Christ.
Last week, Transforming Ministry (previously known as the Central Readers' Council) launched its first module in Online Worship. This free resource has been written by Rev Norman Ivison (formerly a BBC producer) and can be accessed via their website. Although commissioned by Transforming Ministry, the course is suitable for both lay and ordained people.
