Thank you for your interest in Christ Church Cathedral!

 

Looking for a place to start? Join us on Sunday mornings at 8 or 10am in person, or at 10am online. Not sure what we do on a Sunday morning? Check out the What to Expect section below.

 

We offer a gathering time following the 10am service in the garden at 11am, or online via Zoom at 11:30am. Contact The Reverend Laura Masterson for more information.

As of June 11, 2021, the rhythm of our Sunday worship looks and feels much like it did before the pandemic. Review our reopening plans here.

We are for Lexington. We are for you. Everyone can find a home at Christ Church Cathedral. We are an affirming community that welcomes everyone. Our worship is joyful, meaningful, inclusive, and transcendent.

Christ Church Cathedral equips disciples through our many ministries. Reach out to one of our staff to get connected, or explore our next steps and ministries tabs. We have much to offer exactly where you are!

What to Expect
 
  • We suspect you might have some questions. Many of us had the same ones when we first arrived. Please don't hesitate to ask anyone.
  • We want you to be comfortable so you can worship God and enjoy your visit. Don't worry about trying to "do everything right." You can't go wrong if you try to follow what everybody else is doing. If you need help, ask the person next to you. Don't feel you should do anything that makes you uncomfortable. You'll see we don't all do everything alike.
  • If you're wondering whether you may take communion, the answer is "yes, if you are baptized." This is God's own table where we partake of the blessing of God's love in Christ.

Our Core Values

We Celebrate God
We are passionate about our historic and traditional worship and music and the ancient sacraments of baptism and communion. As followers of Jesus, our faith guides what we do together. Our love of God is visible through worship, music, preaching, teaching, contemplation, and the creative arts.

We Invite All
We invite others to experience God’s transforming love. As a people of invitation, we offer a spiritual home for all people. We are a non-judgmental, inclusive and welcoming community where all can find a place to belong.

We Connect Lives
We are a welcoming and caring spiritual home where everyone is valued and everyone is important.  We are concerned for one another inside and outside our church home, and we care for one another.

We Nurture Faith
We value all generations. We provide a nurturing environment in which to explore one’s spirituality and grow in faith. We uplift and support our children, youth, and families, offering a space for all to engage in meaningful spiritual practices.

We Share Our Gifts
We believe what Scripture confirms: All that we have is a gift from God.  As a people of prayer and action, we generously share our time, talent and financial resources to fulfill God’s vision.

We Serve the World
We are a compassionate community that engages in significant, tangible outreach to the greatest needs of our city, diocese and world. We serve as a gathering place in times of celebration and challenge.  We respect the dignity of all and work for social justice and reconciliation.
