Headteacher Sabbath Day

We are hosting a ‘Sabbath Day’ at Chelmsford Cathedral for our Headteachers and School Leaders. There will be free time to wander and meet together in the church, gardens and city. The Bishop of Colchester will offer a series of Reflections. There will be optional short times of worship. Above all, we want the day to be a free gift to leaders who have given so much of themselves and shouldered so much responsibility this last year and more. 

We encourage our headteachers and leaders to take time out with us in our mother church, the Cathedral, with Bishop Roger on 17 June. The day starts at 11:15am (10:30am for optional Holy Communion) and will end no later than 3pm. Spaces are limited, so book early. There is no charge.

Suitable for: Headteachers and School Leaders
Facilitator: Education Team and The Right Reverend Roger Morris, Bishop of Colchester
Location: Chelmsford Cathedral (Located opposite the Diocesan Offices - directions and parking information)
Duration: 5 hours
Cost: FREE, booking essential
