Space to reflect

On Thursday 6 August we hosted an Online Quiet Day, to encourage us all to take space to nuture our faith.

This Quiet Day was held on the Feast of the Transfiguration, and included the regular pattern of daily services as well as three addresses, delivered by member of the cathedral clergy, exploring the significance of this special day in the Christian year.

If you missed the day, the live-streamed reflections and the service of Compline are available from this page for you to have your own quiet day, wherever you are.
