Worship

Why do people come here? Some come to the Cathedral for the music, some for a moment of quiet in a busy week, and some for the beauty of the building itself. But the main focus of Cathedral life is the worship of God through prayer, praise and fellowship. Services of prayer (including communion services) are offered every day in the Cathedral, but the life of the Cathedral comes to a particularly sharp focus at our Cathedral Eucharist at 10.30am every Sunday morning. The term “Eucharist” derives from the Greek word for “thanksgiving”. This service – also known as ‘Mass’, ‘Holy Communion’, or ‘Lord’s Supper’ – has been at the heart of Christian life ever since Jesus’ command to his disciples at the Last Supper to ‘Do this in remembrance of me’.

People of all faiths and none are very welcome to visit the Cathedral at any time, to join us for a service, to light a candle, or simply to enjoy the building and its atmosphere.
