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 25 October we think about loving God, and make a folding paper card to share God's love with others. Click here to download.

On Sunday 18 October our reading is 'the mission of the seventy' from St Luke's Gospel. We make a hanging peace dove and consider how we can help spread peace and the word of God. Click here to download.

Introducing Durham Cathedral's Community of Prayer

Join a welcoming online community of pilgrims on the way of faith

This new community is designed to help you along your journey of faith together with like-minded pilgrims. Membership will deepen your connection to Durham Cathedral, wherever you live, with online activities and discussion through regular quiet days, zoom gatherings and a private Facebook group. We hope it'll be a place that our thriving online congregation can call home. If you'd prefer not to commit, we still plan to continue our live-streams of daily services on Facebook as normal. Watch Canon Charlie Allen introduce the community in this video, or watch it on Youtube here.

A previous Remembrance Sunday service at Durham Cathedral

Remembrance Sunday service: Sunday 8 November

Unfortunately, we will not be able to conduct this year's Remembrance Sunday service as we would normally wish to. On Sunday 8 November, the Remembrance Sunday service will not be open to the general public, in order to ensure that all relevant military and civil organisations are represented within the limited numbers permitted in church at this time.

Watch the service online

The service will be live-streamed at 10.30am on Durham Cathedral's Facebook page.

Other services on Remembrance Sunday

  • Holy Communion will be live-streamed at 8.30am in place of Morning Prayer. Holy Communion will be online only.
  • Choral Evensong will be sung at 3.30pm. This service is open to the public as well as being live-streamed as usual.

Thank you for your understanding. These alterations will make this important service safer for all attending, and we hope that by streaming the service online we hope that many more people than usual will be able to participate in the service.

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.

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.
Amen.
