Worship

at Great St Mary's, the University Church, Cambridge

Worship lies at the heart of Christian life. It is in worship that we express our theology and define our identity. It is through encountering God within worship that we are formed, and transformed, as God’s people. Whether you're seeking to deepen your faith or are just curious about Christianity, you're invited to join us in worship.

We meet online every weekday for Morning Prayer and Night Prayer, and on Sundays online at 9.30am [and in church at 8am, 10.30am, and 4pm*]

*In line with National Restrictions, there will be no public worship services in church until after 2 December, but our online worship will continue.

We pray daily for the world, this city, the University, and our city. Download our prayer diary to join us in this ministry.
