Ordinations: Sunday 27 September, 10am and 4pm

The Bishop of Durham will lead two services of ordination for this diocese at Durham Cathedral, and the Venerable David Picken, Archdeacon of Lancaster will preach. These services are unfortunately not open to the public and attendance is by invitation only. Both services will be live-streamed on the Diocese of Durham's Facebook page, and also available to watch on Durham Cathedral's Facebook page. We hope you can join us online to celebrate this joyful day!

As a result of these ordination services, there are changes to the day's worship this Sunday. Morning Prayer will be live-streamed as usual, but will not be open to the public, and communion and evensong will be incorporated into the ordination services. Read more on our regular services page.

Online worship resources for children

Discover online resources for use at home specifically for parents and carers to use with children. Each week they will be linked to the liturgy used in the Sunday 9.30am online Eucharist or other relevant themes.

On Sunday 20 September we look at the parable of the Labourers in the Vineyard, and think about fairness, and how it doesn't matter how long you've been a Christian, we all will access the Kingdom of Heaven if we follow Jesus. The activity is making growing paint - click here to download.

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.
