The challenge, and adventure, of ecumenism (promoting unity between Christian churches) is recognised in many different ways in the life of our Cathedral, including the presence of our Ecumenical Canons drawn from different Christian traditions.

They bring diversity and vitality through their contribution to the life of our Cathedral community.

This Sunday’s 10:30am service

The Revd Canon Philip Gray, Acting Precentor, explains more about how this is covered in this Sunday’s Eucharist:


“As what we pray and sing reflects our beliefs and desires, so our three hymns on Sunday morning particularly will reflect this call to unity in different ways: our common foundation in Jesus Christ, our common hope of the presence of God in eternity, and our unity expressed through the refrain “One Church, One faith, One Lord.”


“We pray that this desire for unity, expressed through our diversity, becomes an ever increasing reality for us all.”

One of the Ecumenical Canons at Bradford Cathedral is the Reverend Kerry Tankard, representing the Methodist denomination. Here is his sermon from the Eucharist which took place in this week in 2021

You can join us for the service both in person and online, and more information can be found on our website.
