Sundays @ 7
14th August 2015
For a small number of people our second-Sunday service of Holy Ground is their ‘congregation’; they value the combination of informality, reflective sacramental worship and the fact that it on a Sunday evening as morning services do not fit well with their life style. The same group have asked if we can extend our worship offer to include a Sunday evening Eucharist, which reflects some of the core Holy Ground values and characteristics.
The Chapter explored this in March 2015 and concluded that this would be a positive step forward for us as a Cathedral as it would enable us to nurture a new congregation, reach a wider group of people, support those we have reached through Holy Ground and the Pilgrim course and diversify a little.
We shall therefore be launching ‘Sundays @ 7’ from September. The service will be held in the Chapter House at 7pm and will begin as a simple, reflective Eucharist with plenty of opportunity to get to know one another over coffee. The second Sunday of each month will continue as Holy Ground.
Perhaps we are sowing seeds once again from which God might bring a new harvest?
