Sunday at 1030 – Main Diet of Worship

Chancel with Flowers

Worship is central to life at the Cathedral – as it has been for over a thousand years. The main diet of worship takes place on a Sunday at 10.30am. The service follows the Reformed pattern of the Approach to God, the Word of God, and finally the Response to God. Worship begins with a warm welcome, followed by a mix of music and words, ancient and modern, centred around the seasonal pattern of the Christian year. 

The Cathedral uses the Church of Scotland’s most recent hymnal – Church Hymnary: Fourth Edition, as well as hymns from diverse musical traditions such as Taize and the Iona Community. Hymns both ancient and modern take their place in our worship, and liturgy and responses are not infrequent – as we seek to worship God in forms both old and new.

Holy Communion, at which all are welcome, is celebrated formally at Easter and in October.

We also offer up to God during these services our Prayer Requests from our Prayer Tree.


Outside the Cathedral in the Kirkyard, a focus for prayer is the Peace Pole – which in common with others all over the world – has the words ‘May Peace Prevail on Earth’ scribed in six different languages.

The languages being:English,Polish, French, Hungarian,Gaelic and Italian. It stands also as a symbol of peace for our community here in Brechin and surrounding areas.
