Reflection by Andrew Stephens-Rennie

On Sunday evening, the Cathedral hosted the Fullerton College Choir, visiting from Orange County, California at the 5.30pm St. Brigids Eucharist.
Gathered in the chancel, congregation and choir sitting together, the music soared. A choir full of exquisite voices was added to the regular 30+ in weekly attendance at St. Brigids. It was beautiful. It was moving. It was a wonderful way to end the week.


Reflection by Dean Peter Elliott

Worship is at the heart of the life and ministry of Christ Church Cathedral. Seven times a week and four times on Sunday, people gather around the Altar to take part in the liturgies of the church. Worship calls us into an awareness of a deeper mystery, a greater presence, as we approach and address the true and living God, known to us in Jesus Christ.
