Through daily worship in the Anglican tradition, retreats, quiet mornings and creative prayer evenings Christ Church Cathedral seeks to be a sanctuary of prayer and praise to God in the heart of a busy and dynamic city.
Amongst the cathedral’s aesthetic treasures is our Trinity icon, written in the style of the famous Russian Iconographer, Andrei Rublev. Our icon was written by Georgetta Simion following a commission by the Dean of Christ Church in 2009. Georgetta studied art at the University of Bucharest and is a prolific icon writer of the Romanian school.
The space in the foreground of this beautiful icon is open, inviting us in. It is our hope that through the rhythm of prayer and spirituality expressed in life of the cathedral, all in this place will experience the sense of God’s welcome, inviting us in and welcoming us to the table.
In 2018 a new labyrinth plaza was opened on the cathedral grounds. The labyrinth is accessible, free of charge, whenever our grounds are open to the public.
We have created a dedicated website with information about labyrinths and suggestions for prayer:
