“Cathedral people worship God using the liturgy of Anglican tradition in a contemporary way, seeking and celebrating God’s presence in music, mystery, word and sacrament.“
The Cathedral community worships on the plain and on the Hill – at the Cathedral, Browning Street, and at the Ormond Chapel, Napier Terrace, Hospital Hill. Please join us as we worship God in spirit and in truth at our weekly services:
Regular Sunday Services at the Cathedral:
8.00am - Eucharist – a quiet Communion service with sermon (no hymns)
10.00am - Choral Eucharist and Cathedral Kids –Cathedral worship featuring music by the Cathedral Choir. Children move to their area after the opening greetings to follow their own programme and return for Communion
On the second Sunday of the month, the 10.00 am service is a Parish Eucharist involving all ages, with the young people of the parish participating in the planning and leadership of the service.
Morning worship at the Cathedral uses the liturgies of the New Zealand Prayer Book. Evening worship happens on occasion, check the schedule.
