Welcome from the Acting Dean
Welcome to Derby Cathedral website. Derby Cathedral is one of the newer Cathedrals and was hallowed on 28 October 1927. The Cathedral was recently refurbished and the new lighting adds to the beauty of the Cathedral.
The Cathedral in Derby offers space for people to come and sit, reflect and pray. There is much to think about at this time of year and as we begin to see the end of the cold and darkness of winter we begin to look towards the hope of warmth, light and new birth. This season of Spring, in the norther hemisphere, is tied to the churches’ season of Lent. Lent is a time set aside by the Church for reflection and self-examination. Lent begins on March 1st and the Cathedral will offer opportunities for people to reflect on this penitential season through, liturgy and worship, study and reflection. The Cathedral Book shop also offers books to aid personal reflection in Lent.
As we journey through Lent we will look towards Holy Week and Easter. Holy week is the week when we remember the last week of Jesus’ life. When we remember the Last Supper and when we remember Jesus’ death on the cross. Easter Day is the center piece of the Churches’ year and through Christ’s death and resurrection we are offered new life and new hope in God.
Please do come and visit us over the next few weeks and see this beautiful Cathedral and please do join in our worship as we journey through Lent and Holy Week, to the joy of the Resurrection at Easter.
