Today nearly 2 billion people throughout the world worship Jesus as the Son of God. Their experience has convinced them that in the wonders of nature we see God as our loving Father; in the person of Jesus we discover God as Son; and in our daily lives we encounter this same God as Spirit. Jesus is our way to finding God: we learn about Jesus by reading the Bible, particularly the New Testament and we meet him directly in our spiritual experience.
Jesus taught us to trust in a loving and merciful Father and to pray to him in faith for all our needs. He taught that we are all infinitely precious, children of one heavenly Father, and that we should therefore treat one another with love, respect and forgiveness. He lived out what he taught by caring for those he met; by healing the sick – a sign of God’s love at work; and by forgiving those who put him to death. Jesus’ actions alone would not have led him to a criminal’s death on the cross: but his teaching challenged the religious and moral beliefs of his day. Jesus claimed to be the only way to reach God. Above all, he pointed to his death as God’s appointed means of bringing self-focused people back to God. Jesus also foretold that he would be raised to life again three days after his death. When three days after he had died on the cross his followers did indeed meet him alive again, frightened and defeated men became fearless and joyful messengers. Their message of the good news about Jesus is the reason this church exists. More importantly, it is the reason why all over the world there are Christians who know what it means to meet the living Jesus, and who believe that he alone has the key to human life. Read more…
As part of our Benedictine Ethos, life at Norwich Cathedral is built on the daily exploration of faith through many kinds of worship. A tradition dating back to 1096 – Every day at Norwich Cathedral we hold Morning Prayer, Holy Communion and Evensong services, at which prayer is offered in differing ways. Quite remarkably, this daily rhythm of worship has been central to life here since 1096. You are able to read more about these services and what they involve by looking in the Services section. A place to experience other forms of worship – As well as this traditional rhythm of services, the Cathedral is also a space that is used for other forms of prayerful activity. When visiting many people take the opportunity to light a candle or write a prayer for something or someone that is close to their heart, or simply spend time soaking up the peacefulness that is present in the Cathedral and its surrounding Close. Other examples include people listening to the sounds of the Norwich Cathedral Choir, which is breathtakingly beautiful amidst the Cathedral’s acoustic, or attending community group activities such as our Tuesday lunchtime Christian Meditation.

For the first 450 years of its existence Norwich Cathedral was also a Benedictine monastery and, whilst there are no longer monks here, the ethos of this tradition is a continuing influence on Cathedral life. It can be identified across three key values; worship, learning and hospitality. In the 6th century Benedict of Nursia wrote his ‘Rule for Monks’, based on his own experience of fallible people striving to live out the gospel. This Rule proved to be so good and well balanced, that it became widely adopted as the model for western monasticism. In the present day Benedict’s Rule continues to be valued both in the church and beyond, with many present-day business leaders citing it as a source of inspiration. The Rule of St Benedict expresses a vision and values for life as a community.
About the Cathedral Community – Norwich Cathedral is the home of a vibrant Christian community, cherishing its Benedictine foundation and seeking to express the principles laid down by St Benedict. At the heart of everything that happens in the Cathedral is our daily worship. Each day begins with saying Morning Prayer and the celebration of the Eucharist. Each day concludes with the singing of Evensong. All who wish to attend are very welcome at these services. Read more…
