Worship Online

The Very Reverend Nicola Sullivan

We are delighted to be able to reopen for public worship as of today, Wednesday 2 December, in line with Government guidance and will be open daily from 11am-3pm. Please visit our Services Calendar page for up-to-date information on all services.

The Eucharist will still be recorded weekly from inside the Minster, and there are plenty of other ways to join in worship and fellowship together online, including daily Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer (Monday-Wednesday only) on Microsoft Teams (email richard.frith@southwellminster.org.uk to join), Stilling Prayer on Monday evenings and Compline on Thursdays. Whether we meet in person or online, we are one community, and part of the one body of Christ.

10am: Cathedral Eucharist Online
The First Sunday of Advent

The President of the Eucharist is The Revd Dr Richard Frith, Canon Precentor.
The Preacher is The Very Revd Nicola Sullivan, Dean of Southwell.
The Boy Choristers and Lay Clerks of the Cathedral Choir are directed by Paul Provost, Rector Chori.
The organ is played by Jonathan Allsopp, Assistant Director of Music.
The setting for the Eucharist is Mass for Five Voices by William Byrd (c.1539-1623).

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.

A video of the Service will appear below at 10am on Sunday morning. You do not need to sign in to watch it. Please refresh your browser by pressing F5 if the video doesn't play.

Morning and Evening Prayer

All are welcome to join the clergy at online Morning and Evening Prayer each weekday at 8.30am and 5.30pm. To take part, please email the Canon Precentor at richard.frith@southwellminster.org.uk. You will need a device with an internet connection, but little prior technical knowledge is required.

Virtual Junior Church


Whilst the Minster is closed, Junior Church will become Virtual Junior Church, allowing children and families to come together to take part in themed activities that we would have otherwise done together on a Sunday morning. You can find the activity sheets in the tabs below

If you are interested in helping with Junior Church or would like to find out more information about it, please contact Mrs Karen Edginton by calling 01636 815836 or emailing edginton1@hotmail.com

Stilling Prayer

What is it?

Stilling Prayer (or ‘Christian Meditation’) is held each Monday in term-time at 7.30pm. For the time being we have moved online and observe our time of silence collectively in our homes. The leader for each evening supplies a short thought or quote to help lead us into silence, in much the same way as when we meet in person. If you would like to join this online group, please email the group’s coordinator, Stephen Ibbotson, at ibbotson51@gmail.com.
