Cathedral Nights

Pause. Breathe. Pray.

Christ Church Cathedral runs a series of special open evenings throughout the year intended to help you make space in your busy day for prayer and reflection. Cathedral Nights are free to attend and all are welcome. Each evening is unique but they generally include music, readings from scripture and helpful suggestions on how you can make space in your life and creatively engage in prayer.

All are welcome in attend in the way that suits you. Stop for a little while or stay for the whole evening. We look forward to welcoming you. For more information on upcoming Cathedral Nights, please contact ei.hcruhctsirhc@emoclew.

Cathedral Nights: Refuge and Stronghold

‘My refuge and my stronghold, my God, in whom I put my trust.’  Psalm 91:2

A series of reflection evenings will take place over 4 Wednesdays during Lent:

  • 9 March
  • 23 March
  • 30 March
  • 6 April

Each evening will run 19.00 – 20.00. The journey through Lent provides an annual opportunity to set aside extra time for reflection and to be open to experiencing renewal. This year, as we enjoy many aspects of the return to ‘normal’ life, there is perhaps also the need to make space to reflect on and to acknowledge how the pandemic has impacted us. In what ways was it easy or difficult to experience God as refuge and stronghold during the events of the last 2 years? How do we carry the sense of God as refuge and stronghold going forward, in the face of any challenges or difficulties that may come? Each session will include lectio divina style reflection on 1-2 of the Sunday lectionary readings, allowing space for silence, sharing and suggestions for prayer.
