New Service for the Next Generation

 

All-Age Eucharist, Sundays at 9.00 am

 

On 19 September we started a new All-Age Eucharist on Sundays at 9.00 am – as part of our vision in the Master Plan to grow the congregation, especially with younger age groups. This is a distinctive Eucharist to fit with the Cathedral’s liturgical style and music, aimed at attracting a new generation of worshippers, and lasting 40 minutes..
