Pause. Breathe. Pray.
At the end of a busy day this is an invitation to make space.
Christ Church Cathedral runs an occasional series of special open evenings intended to help you make space in your day for prayer and reflection. The format of the evenings varies but all generally include music, readings from scripture, and suggestions for ways to creatively engage in prayer. Stop for just a little while or stay for the whole evening. All are welcome and these events are free of charge.

This time of year can be so busy we need to make space to prepare for the celebration of Christmas: the birth of Jesus, who came into the world to be ‘God with us’. The cathedral offers spaces for quiet prayer and reflections during the evening led by the Dean.
Tuesday, 19 December, A Quiet Christmas
