Watch the Mothering Sunday Sung Eucharist
A simple service of Holy Communion, with a short address by Dean Nicola and music sung by some of our Lay Clerks, was broadcast at 10.30am on Sunday 22 March 2020. If you missed it, don't worry - it can still be seen below. You can also find the order of service below, or download it here.
Please do join in at home as you are comfortably able: you may wish to stand, sit and kneel as you normally would in church (we have included instructions for posture in the order of service for this reason), and/or to speak and sing along with the congregational elements of the service.

Prayer is an essential part of our life as a Christian. It is an opportunity to share with God the situations and people who are in our hearts. Prayer is also about listening and taking the time to listen to what God is saying to us.
The Lord’s Prayer is the prayer that Jesus taught his disciples, when they asked him how they should pray.
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.
Stilling Prayer (or ‘Christian Meditation’) is held each Monday in term time at 7.30pm. For the time being we will be moving on-line and observing it collectively in our homes on Mondays 7.30 – 8.00 pm. The leader for each evening will supply us with a short thought or quote to help lead us into silence, in much the same way as when we meet. If you would like to join this on-line group please e-mail the group’s coordinator Stephen Ibbotson who can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org
The daily pattern of worship is the heartbeat of this Cathedral, a rhythm of praise and prayer.
