Derby Cathedral during the COVID-19 epidemic – an update from the Acting Dean

The Cathedral is closed

Following Government advice, the Cathedral is closed to the public from 24th March until further notice. However, online worship will continue with resources on this website and live-streaming here. Join others in the Cathedral community in prayer. Continue to pray for people who are worried, for medical staff, for people making hard decisions.

“Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.” (John 14.27)

Cathedral Services

Public worship has been suspended, following the guidance from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York published on 17th March 2020. So there are no public services on weekdays or Sundays and the building is closed. The Cathedral clergy are continuing to say Morning and Evening Prayer every day at home.

Morning Prayer is live-streamed at 8.30 am Monday to Friday. You can watch here, live at the time or later on. The link will take you to the Cathedral's Facebook page. You don't have to be a Facebook user or be logged in to Facebook to watch (you do if you want to comment).

You can follow the words of Morning Prayer here (Morning Prayer Contemporary) or you can download the free smartphone app Daily Prayer. 

Arrangements for a live-streamed Sunday service will be announced shortly. You will be able to watch here, live at the time or later on. The link will take you to the Cathedral's Facebook page, and you can watch the Cathedral Eucharist for last Sunday, Mothering Sunday. You don't have to be a Facebook user or be logged in to Facebook to watch (you do if you want to comment).

For people at home

You will find online resources here for worship and prayer. More resources for prayer will be on this website and the Cathedral’s social media in upcoming days.

If you don’t already get email news from the Cathedral, you can click here and register to get updates.

And if you know of someone at home who’s not online and would like to stay in touch, phone them for a chat. Or, if you don’t have their number, let the Cathedral know (email missioner@derbycathedral.org) and we will try to be in touch with them by phone.

Are services or events cancelled?
