Chelmsford Cathedral
Breakfast with the Bible

A chance to delve deeply into the Bible with others on a Sunday morning over breakfast. 

During Lockdown Breakfast with the Bible followed a special series - Stations of the Resurrection. All the content for that can be found below. 

From September 6th, Breakfast with the Bible will be meeting on Zoom from 8.45am to 9.30am. If you would like to join the sessions, please email Canon Imogen Nay on for the Zoom code each week.

Breakfast with the Bible is led by various members of the Cathedral congregation, lay and ordained. It includes time for discussion as well as some teaching input from the leaders.

The leaders have been asked to choose a Bible passage or story that helps them reflect on what has been happening over the past four months.

Our first leader will be the Rev'd Dr Paul Beasley-Murray and he will be looking at Ecclesiastes 3.1-15. The course notes are available below.  Click on the link highlighted blue.

All are very welcome - you do not need to be an expert in the Bible. It is a space to read Scripture together and grow in faith.

Sunday mornings from 6th September 8.45am-9.30am on Zoom. Bring your own breakfast!!
