Cathedral Nights


Cathedral Nights

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.

We are resuming our annual ‘What are you afraid of?’ service. A series of interactive prayer spaces will be available, helping us to reflect and offer our prayers for the impacts that the coronavirus pandemic has had on lives and livelihoods around the world, as well as other fears and anxieties we may be facing. Prayer ministry will also be available in the context of an alternative style All Saints’ Eucharist.

Sunday, 5 December, Advent Watching and Waiting

This time of year can be so busy we need intentionally to make space to slow down. There will reflective music, a peaceful atmosphere, and suggestions for creative prayer, offering you time and space to pray for yourself, your loved ones and for the needs of our world.
