Chelmsford Cathedral
Prayer at Chelmsford Cathedral

At the heart of the Christian faith is a desire to connect with God. Prayer is one way in which people seek to do just that.

There are different forms of prayer: thanksgiving, asking God for things, saying sorry to God, praising God, to silence and meditation. Many people today are interested in meditation and mindfulness and the Christian tradition has centuries of practice in such forms of prayer.

On this page you will find various resources to help you explore the whole subject of prayer. You are also invited to come to the Cathedral, perhaps for one of our services, but also to use the sacred space to find your own stillness, peace and potential place of encounter with God.
