On Saturday 4th July we opened our doors again for private prayer and reflection and you are all very welcome to join us.  We will be open each day from 11am to 3pm. (Sundays 12 noon until 3pm).

When you come to the Cathedral you will find that the building has been arranged with care to retain its character as a place of prayer and also to minimize risk as we continue to live with the Coronavirus pandemic. Prayer material will be available each day for visitors to pick up and take away, and you are very welcome to light candles and to use the prayer stations in the building.


From Sunday 12th July the Cathedral is open for public worship for the first time since lock-down began. Due to current restrictions the numbers of those who can attend the worship must be restricted. We are asking people therefore to register in advance to obtain a free ticket for Sunday's Eucharist Service at 10.30 am. 

How to Book a Ticket for Sunday's Worship

Telephone Laura Dolton, Operations Manager on 01245 294470 on Friday 10th July between 12 midday and 3pm.  Tickets can only be booked on Friday at the times listed above. 


Junior Church will also be running on Sunday at 10.30am in Guy Harlings Gardens. This will be an All Age Service, parents must stay with their children and places must be booked in advance here:

The Sunday Service will be live-streamed on Facebook and then be availble on YouTube in the normal way. 


For the present, Daily Prayer will continue to be streamed on Facebook at 7.45 am and 5.15 pm each day. This will be done by the Dean and Canons from their homes.
