Autumn Programme

Ministry for the Future: Prophets and Preachers

Preaching, Speaking and Christian Formation at Ely Cathedral: October - November

View our Autumn programme booklet

Our primary calling as Christians to love God and our neighbour turns us outwards towards the needs of our world, in all its beauty and all its trouble.

Still in the grip of a global pandemic and a rapidly unfolding climate crisis with its attendant ills, our preachers and speakers help us to discern where we, in our small corner of the world, might lend our skills and energies to the building of God’s kingdom of love and justice - to our own ‘ministry for the future’.

The earth is the Lord’s, and all that therein is: the compass of the world, and all that dwell therein. — Psalm 24, verse 1.

Prayer for the present time

Empower us
to be bold participants
rather than timid saints-in-waiting,
in the difficult ordinariness of now;
to exercise the authority of honesty,
rather than to defer to power,
or deceive to get it;
to influence someone for justice,
rather than impress anyone for gain;
and, by grace, to find treasures
of joy, of friendship, of peace
hidden in the field of the daily
you give us to plough.
