The journey begins...

The journey through Lent to Holy Week and Easter is always a wonderful time for reflection and worship and this year, whilst we remain in lockdown, will be no different. 

One of the features of Lent at Southwark over the last decade has been the art installation.  We have seen some wonderful art being brought into the cathedral over the last ten years which has helped us enter into the Lenten experience in fresh ways - 'Die Harder', 'Christ Rests', wool flowing down the screen, 'Earthworks' and last year’s candles representing us all.  This year, given that the Cathedral is closed at the present time, we have made the decision to delay the installation until after Trinity Sunday but to begin the experience beforehand with our online graphics.

We are delighted to be working this year with the Turner Prize nominated artist Mark Titchner.  You may already be familiar with his work from billboards around London.  His installation will dominate the interior of the Cathedral with the strong message 'Please believe these days will pass'. We are looking forward to working with him and are grateful to him for allowing us the use of his art during Lent.

Below you will find details about more aspects of Lent at Southwark Cathedral this year.  We look forward to journeying with you.
