Keeping in Touch

23 July 2021

We’re delighted that we’re more open than at any time in the last year, but we’re also aware that some people are not able to access worship and other events. We are continuing to livestream some worship, and hold some events online.


Please see the worship pages for latest details. Our Sundays services are at 8, 10, 4, and 6. Some will be livestreamed. There is a daily Eucharist during the week at 1.15pm in the Lady Chapel. Other services are dependent on the availability of visiting choirs over the summer. Sunday services at 10 and 4 will be livestreamed.

We’d really love to encourage you to join in daily Morning Prayer at 9am on Zoom. Evening Prayer will be Zoomed at 5pm on days when there is no Choral Evensong. There’s quite a community gathering around these moments – and we’d love to see that community grow and include new people. One of the great things is that you can join in these services from afar – and we regularly have people from as far away as Sidmouth and London.

Pastoral Support

Do get in touch if you are in need of support or know of someone else who would value our care. Contact: [email protected] or 07906 249132.

We’re also delighted to be told of those who would like to be included on our prayer lists; we need to know that the person themselves give permission for this before adding their name. We are once again able to take holy communion to people at home who are unable to get to the Cathedral for worship.

Do get in touch if you are in need of support or know of someone else who would value our care.

Still on Zoom

Do join one of our – now weekly – Zoom meet ups. We have some simple instructions on how to join.

Mondays at 1.00pm, hosted by Howard Moffat
Prayers for Healing
The regular Prayers for Healing group, bringing the needs of our world and community to God. We’re sending this link – and emailing the service sheet – to members of our community who ask. Please email [email protected] for an invitation.

Wednesdays at 8.00pm, hosted by Clare Bryden
Lectio Divina Group
Lectio Divina, or divine reading, is an ancient form of praying with Scripture. We listen to the Bible with the “ear of the heart”, with the aim of nourishing and deepening our relationship with God. We’ll be using the Gospel reading for the day. Please see this leaflet for more information about what to expect.
Meeting ID: 940 4683 2921
Password: lectio

Note: the Lectio Divina Group will not meet during August. Sessions will resume on Wednesday 1 September.

Living in Love and Faith
Four groups engaged in these Church of England conversation on gender, sexuality, and identity got underway at the beginning of Lent. It was great to see so many people interested in joining these conversations. We had to ask a small number of people to wait until later in the year. We will be running groups again in the summer and in the autumn, (hopefully in person by the autumn). In the meantime, if you haven’t done so already, we encourage you:

To explore the resources more on the LLF website, and to get the books – the main volume and ‘The Course’ – both of which are available from the Cathedral Shop

  • To sign up to the Cathedral LLF mailing list, so that we can keep you in touch with developments this year, particularly with opportunities to take part in the conversations. Email [email protected] 
  • Plan to join one of the groups that will meet during summer or autumn. Look out for details in the coming weeks.

On Telegram

Our Telegram Group has around 60 members and is a gentle means of keeping in touch with people during the lockdown. It’s easy to use; just download the Telegram messenger app for computer or phone and sign up. If I have your mobile phone number in my contacts, I should be notified that you’ve joined and will invite you to join the group. If I don’t make this invitation, do send an email to Canon Chris Palmer and he will be pleased to add you.
