Hold your own Quiet Day

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

Held on the Feast of the Transfiguration, the Quiet Day included the regular pattern of daily services as well as three addresses 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 for you to hold your own quiet day, wherever you are.

Choral Evensong: Sunday 9 August, 3.30pm

Canon Charlie Allen leads this audio service of choral evensong on the 927th anniversary of the foundation of Durham Cathedral. The service will be broadcast on YouTube and on Durham Cathedral's facebook page.

In this online service we’ve recreated a traditional experience of evensong by combining archive recordings of music with new spoken parts by cathedral clergy. The freshly-recorded hymns were performed by Durham Cathedral Choir. The archive recordings of the organ music, the cathedral choir and past services at Durham Cathedral are used with kind permission of Priory Records.

The order of service can be downloaded here.

A prayer about the Coronavirus outbreak

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy
in this time of uncertainty and distress.
Sustain and support the anxious and fearful,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may rejoice in your comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord.
