Chelmsford Cathedral
 
Regular Services and Music Lists

Chelmsford Cathedral is home to a thriving worshipping community of all ages, and a centre of worship for people and communities across Essex and east London.

Worship is at the heart of everything we do here, and you are welcome to join us on Sundays and through the week. Some of our services are great celebrations with many hundreds of people; others are more intimate times of prayer and meditation. Visitors are always welcome – and Christian worship is a powerful way to learn more about the Christian faith and the life of the Christian community.

The cathedral is open every day of the year. Please come in, light a candle, say a prayer and simply enjoy the tranquillity of this special place. To see the music and service details for evening services between the 1st and the 5th of July, please click here

 

Sundays    
8.00am   Holy Communion: a quiet, reflective service with a short address from the Priest and the traditional words of the old prayer book (35 minutes)

It is very family friendly with an area in the Cathedral for toddlers to sit with their parents during the service and Junior Church for primary aged children (who gather in the Chapter House).
