Novena 2019
NovenaAscension (Thursday 30th May) is the day when we remember Jesus’ return to heaven after his resurrection, and Pentecost is when we celebrate the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on Jesus’ disciples. The nine days between these two key celebrations offer us an opportunity for prayer and reflection as we long for that gift of the Holy Spirit for ourselves and our communities. Today’s booklet is an invitation to explore for yourself, through art and prayer, the dual message of love and challenge. Join us as we pray together “Come Holy Spirit: Thy Kingdom Come” – and may our waiting and praying open our hearts afresh to God’s possibilities.

Welcome to Christ Church Cathedral.
We are a vibrant community in the heart of the City.

Our Cathedral dominates the skyline, gathering pilgrims, visitors and tourists to enjoy its splendid architecture, music and art.
The Cathedral houses Newcastle’s principal War Memorial and Memorabilia.
If you are new to the Cathedral or visiting, we hope you feel at home with us, that you meet Christ in our worship together, and that you experience us as a welcoming and joyful community.
We seek to offer worship with beauty, colour, order and dignity as with open hearts and minds we respond to the living God who makes himself known here.
