Nine Days of Prayer & Music

Novena 2020

Every year for the past few years we have produced a Novena Prayer Card - a journey through prayer over the course of the nine days between Ascension Day and Pentecost.This ties in with the national initiative Thy Kingdom Come

This year, while we are socially isolating in lockdown due to Covid-19, we are unable to do this in the same way. 

Instead, we invite you to join with us each morning for NOVENA, a new nine-part series from BCTV.

At 8.00am each day tune into our social channels for a new episode. Each day we will look at a different piece of music that will take you on a journey from darkness to light. 

Canon Nicola Stanley presents that day's guest, who will each introduce a piece of music sung by the Cathedral Choir, taken from choir CDs and broadcasts. The familiar faces come from our musician and verger teams, and each person will give their own insight into the music or text of the day's piece of music. The programme closes with a prayer for the day from Canon Nicola.

We hope this series will help you journey through the nine days from Ascension to Pentecost as we look to the certainty of Christ's light and the gift of the Holy Spirit in a world with an uncertain future.  

Begins 8.00am, Friday 22 May 2020 on:

The programme will be available to view at your leisure after the initial broadcast.
