Holy Ground is an exciting opportunity to explore, question and express Christian spirituality and values in a beautiful and ancient setting. All are welcome at Holy Ground which takes place on the second Sunday of every month and is a mixture of creativity and contemplation. At Holy Ground, we enjoy combining creative approaches to spirituality with stimulating and open-minded discussions about Christianity and its contexts, as well as creating spaces for quiet reflection upon God, ourselves and the world.
Holy Ground is a chance for those from all Christian traditions to explore their ideas and beliefs in the open and generous setting of Exeter Cathedral, as well as a place for all those who are simply curious about Christianity and about God, irrespective of background or tradition.
We enjoy a creative and contemplative act of worship, at the heart of which is a celebration of the Holy Communion or Lord’s Supper. We are often joined by the University of Exeter Chapel Choir. This part of the evening lasts approximately 45 minutes and is followed by coffee.
We then welcome a guest speaker. This is a great chance to hear talks on matters of faith, arts and social justice, and to engage in discussion and debate with others in a lively and open-minded setting. Recent speakers have included Brian McLaren, Dave Tomlinson and Jayne Ozanne.
