Fellowship Groups

Many members of the Cathedral community find that belonging to a small worship or study group of ten or so members provides an ideal context in which to discuss, explore and question the Christian faith, as well as providing opportunities to put it into action.

The Guild of the Epiphany

Founded over a hundred years ago, originally as part of a national network, this is certainly the longest running of our groups! The Guild tries to be a stimulating and challenging forum, encouraging members to think more deeply about the scriptures and to develop their own faith. The original format of Guild meetings continues observing the three aspects of worship, fellowship and study.

Members' homes provide the venue for the group, which usually meets at 7.30pm once a month. The evening begins with a short act of worship using a liturgy similar to Compline. This is followed by light refreshments. The group then studies and discusses a passage from the Bible (usually a single book is studied over a number of months). Anyone may contribute, but nobody is pushed into saying anything. The meeting usually finishes at about 9.30pm.

The Guild meets once a month throughout the year, except August.

The Kyneburgha Group

New members to this friendly, informal study group are always welcome. It usually meets during the daytime to follow short courses of Bible study in the St. Kyneburgha Chapel (in the Cathedral’s South Transept).
