Sermon Preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Subdean, The Revd Canon John Patrick, on Advent Sunday, 29th November 2015. May the words of my mouth and the thoughts of all our hearts be acceptable to you, O Lord our Strength and our Redeemer. Amen. The Gospel verses this morning present us with an apocalyptic vision of cosmic distress, a vision that will confuse people and usher in the Kingdom of God, There will be signs in the sun, the moon […]
Philip Buckler, Dean Gavin Kirk, Precentor Mark Hocknull, Chancellor John Patrick, Subdean Philippa White, Succentor With Advent Sunday we start again the church year and we begin not with a birth or the resurrection but with a sense of expectation: the year starts with waiting and wonder.
On the evening of Thursday 26 November, Lincoln Cathedral carried out an exploratory trial of new light fittings. This is part of the development work for the £16million ‘Connected’ project, which includes renewal of the Cathedral’s floodlights. The trial used both white and coloured light to test their appearance on the Cathedral’s stonework. A more in-depth trial will take place in 2016, which will involve public consultation.
Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Rev’d Canon Dr Jeffrey Heskins at the Sung Eucharist for the feast of Christ the King; 22 November 2015 The feast of Christ the King which we are celebrating today brings to an end the old liturgical year and sets us up very nicely for the season of Advent.

Sermon preached in Lincoln Cathedral by the Dean, the Very Revd Philip Buckler, at the Remembrance Day Service, 8th November, 2015. What will people think? The despairing cry of many a harassed parent at the antics of their wayward offspring. What will people think? we might ask, of a world that has seen two World Wars of tragic waste, and yet continues to engage in warfare in many different parts of our world today. What must people – what must […]
Sermon preached at Choral Mattins, All Saints’ Day, in Lincoln Cathedral by The Revd Ann Mazur, on Sunday 1st November 2015. As I survey the long line of the Saints who have been formally named in the Church’s calendar I find the diversity and variety of people – men and women – breath taking in its range. Indeed here in St Hugh’s Choir we are surrounded by the carved images of many Saints starting with St Andrew and moving along […]
