From Thursday, April 9th, 2020 until Sunday, April 12th, 2020
This will be an Easter like no other perhaps in the history of the Christian Church as believers around the world will be unable to gather.
There will be a Good Friday and Easter Day Service from the Cathedral available from the Diocesan website closer to the day.
We also hope that we will be able to live stream the stripping of the sanctuary on Maundy Thursday at 7.30pm and An Easter Vigil at 6.15 on Easter Morning. Both will be available to watch after the event.
We hope you can join us on line as we affirm, even in these difficult times
Christ is Risen. Alleluia. He is risen indeed. Alleluia.
Like so much this year, Palm Sunday will be like no other, but somethings do not change Jesus is still our servant king and we can be encouraged to follow his path.
There is a Morning Prayer service from the Cathedral with Bishop Richard available in a variety of ways on the Diocesan Website.
There will be a livestream on our facebook page of Evening Prayer at 5.30 which will have the Passion Reading and reflection.
If you are nostalgic you can watch the recording that was made of our Palm Sunday Service in 2017. The recording starts just after the Procession of the Palms. Bp Chris Jones is the Celebrant and The Dean is the Preacher.
Similar to asking with the Heidelberg “What is your only hope in life and death?”
That I am not my own,
but belong with body and soul,
both in life and in death,
to my faithful Saviour Jesus Christ.
He has fully paid for all my sins
with his precious blood,
and has set me free
from all the power of the devil.
He also preserves me in such a way
that without the will of my heavenly Father
not a hair can fall from my head;
indeed, all things must work together
for my salvation.
Therefore, by his Holy Spirit
he also assures me
of eternal life
and makes me heartily willing and ready
from now on to live for him.
