FROM THE DEAN
A very warm welcome to Holy Trinity Cathedral, the mother church of the Anglican Diocese.
As a Cathedral we are characterised with a dynamic of gathering and sending, welcoming all, worshiping God, nourishing community, and empowering action. We gather people with our liturgies, events, and other functions, by providing a spiritual home for Christians (not only Anglicans), and a safe space for people of other faiths, and for those who are yet uncommitted. In gathering and sending we present the face of Christ and offer hope, grace, and love.
We are a sacred space and a public space. We are a turangawaewae, “the standing ground” for all people in this Diocese, city, and nation. We aim to be a place where all feel welcome and can say this is my place, I belong here.
We are a place where people can gather to celebrate and lament, pray, and debate. A place where God is revealed in word, action, and sacrament. A place that takes seriously our Christian calling to justice and peace for all God’s creation. A place for people of all ages, race, and creed, gender, and sexuality. Our prayer is that you may know God’s love is for you, and for each person who comes.
May the peace of God which passes all understanding be with you always.
The Very Reverend Anne Mills

HOW WE READ
7pm Wednesday 10 November
A joint initiative of the Pearl of the Islands Foundation (Muslim), Beth Shalom Progressive Synagogue (Jewish) and the Holy Trinity Cathedral (Christian), the aim of this initiative is to promote inter-faith understanding and co-operation between members of the three monotheistic religions, Islam, Judaism and Christianity by holding annual panel discussions.
The theme for this year’s panel is to use a Scripture story that is in common, and yet slightly distinct, in Biblical and Quranic narratives. All are welcome.
Please join us in worship by clicking the latest videos below or visiting our Virtual Church.
The schedule of online services during Alert Level 3 will be:
EVENING PRAYER | 6pm Wednesdays
