Video Reflection

This week’s reflection is from the Rev’d Anita Rooney, who reflects on making change and how her own ways of thinking have evolved.

The Cathedral has a regular pattern of services but there are occasional exceptions so, before setting out for a service, please check the current detailed schedules below which are updated every two weeks.

Healing and Wholeness

Sundays at the Cathedral – Prayer for Healing and Wholeness


Each Sunday a member of the cathedral’s ministry team will be at the Lady Chapel altar at the Cathedral’s main 10 o’clock Choral Eucharist. They are available to you for prayer or anointing for healing and wholeness, either for yourself or for anyone for whom you are praying. If you would like personal prayer in this way, this will take place as everyone comes forward to receive Holy Communion in the service: just make your way to the Lady Chapel (to the right of the nave altar) after you have received Communion (or a blessing).
