Hold your own quiet day with these resources.

Space to reflect

On Tuesday 17 November we hosted an online Quiet Day, to encourage us all to take space to nuture our faith.

This Quiet Day was held on St Hilda's Day, and included the regular pattern of daily services as well as three addresses, delivered by members of the cathedral clergy.

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