At the heart of the life of the Cathedral is the daily pattern of worship and prayer. As an Anglican Cathedral we use A Prayer Book for Australia (APBA) and The Book of Common Prayer (BCP). You can be sure of good liturgy, intelligent preaching, choral music and a warm welcome at St Peter’s. Weekdays begin with a quiet reflective Eucharist in the Lady Chapel. You are always welcome at any service.
