We’d love to invite you to join in, to support one another, to learn together, and keep in touch.
We are delighted to be able to return to the cathedral for public worship. Full detail of services are described on our website. Please note the need to book tickets for most services
Our Sundays services at 8, 10, 4, and 6 will be broadcast on Facebook, YouTube, or Zoom. In addition you can join us in person on Wednesdays at 1.15pm, and Sundays at 8.00am and 12.15pm. You’ll need to book a ticket for the 12.15pm service.
But we’d really love to encourage you to join in daily Morning Prayer at 9am on Zoom. 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.
And especially for those without computers, each Fridays at 10.30am, Canon Cate Edmonds hosts a simple Service of the Word on the phone, with contributions from a range of people, a couple of hymns, and a short address. It only takes a moment, so why not give it a go. Ring 03306060403, then when asked key in 484444#
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.
The Pastoral Care Team has concentrated on connecting with those members of our community who do not have internet access in recent weeks; we are better placed this lockdown to make these connections, having created a list of those in this position. But we’re delighted to hear from any who would like to get in touch

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.

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.

Living in Love and Faith
Four groups engaged in this 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.
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.
