Prayer, Pastoral Care, Bible Study & Social Outreach

PRAYER

Being connected to God in prayer gives us the spiritual stamina to go out into the world to make a difference in the lives of others, through Christ. As you will see on our Weekly Services page, the Daily Office of Morning or Evening Prayer is offered each day, Monday to Friday. During this time general intercessions are offered for the Church, the world, those afflicted, and any other special intentions requested. We encourage you to join the clergy in praying these Daily Offices.

Our prayer life is enriched by the teachings of the Early Church Fathers and the spirituality of the monastic traditions. Therefore we also strive to host Quiet Days drawing from these spiritual teachings. 

PASTORAL CARE

What is pastoral care?  This is a term applied where people offer help and caring to others. Pastoral Care is listening, supporting, encouraging and befriending. St Paul’s has a team of lay people who share in the pastoral care of the congregation. At the Sunday morning Cathedral Eucharist there is always a pastoral care team member on duty. 

If at any stage you feel you need pastoral care from the clergy, please do not hesitate to contact the Cathedral Office.

BIBLE STUDY

It is the calling of every Christian:

  1. To train and disciple those who have come to faith so that they can walk in the ways of the Lord.
  2. To walk alongside others in their faith journey and share in their lives.

At present we have two Bible Study Groups on offer. Please feel free to make contact with their leader if you would like to join one of these groups.

  1. Wednesday @ 7.30pm: Home Group Bible Study (Contact Jeanne/Nigel 22 334 090)
  2. Friday @ 10am: ‘Women of Worth’ Bible Study Group (Contact Linda 99 870 654)

The clergy are committed to offering a teaching series during the liturgical year; including a 5-week Lent Course.

SOCIAL OUTREACH

Throughout the year the Cathedral congregation strives to play an active role in many charities within the community and city of Nicosia. Two of our annual fundraisers (May Fayre & Swimathon) donate a percentage of their proceeds to a chosen charity. Over the Christmas period the congregation contributes to the Christmas parties at both the Nicosia Mercy Centre and the Kofinou Refugee Camp by donating various wrapped presents.

On the first Monday of each month the Cathedral, with a host of wonderful volunteers, offers a free supper for refugees and others in need.
