A very warm welcome to Chelmsford Cathedral. This beautiful place is home to a thriving Christian community of all ages, and stands at the heart of the youngest city in England. We seek to serve the city of Chelmsford and a whole region that extends from Canning Town to Clacton on Sea and from Southend to Saffron Walden.

We are open every day from 7.30am and until 6pm seven days a week, and the beating heart of the Cathedral is the daily prayer morning and evening.  There is space here for stillness and silence, the opportunity to light a candle and say a prayer.

The Cathedral is the cultural centre of the city with regular concerts, recitals and exhibitions; a place of learning and exploration with weekly bible studies and groups;  and seeks to serve the wider community through the Wednesday drop-in café and activities for children in the school holidays.  We even become a theological college on Thursday evenings.

See the ‘Visit Us’ section of the website for further details. Services times are in the ‘Services and Music’ section, and you can download the weekly newssheet.

Above all, the Cathedral is public space for everyone and everyone is welcome here.
