Cathedral Eucharist for Sunday 1st November.  Click here for an Order of Service.




















Following the latest Church of England guidance, it is now expected that all visitors to the Cathedral, for worship or private prayer, wear a facemask.

A Cathedral Eucharist will take place at 10.30am each Sunday.  Please note there is no longer a requirement to reserve a place/book a ticket for this service. However, if we reach capacity for any service and it would be unsafe to allow any more people into the building, it is with regret that we would have to close the doors and you would be unable to attend.  Tickets are still required for Junior Church and Muddy Church.

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. 

On Thursdays a simple Eucharist service will take place at 10.30am.  All are welcome to attend but again, please bring a mask.

The Light Up the Night event is now fully booked but you can still join in from home.  Download the pack and get creative making a lantern.  Do share your photos with us using the #lightofhope. 


On the night between All Saints and all Souls' Day, the Cathedral will be lit especially for the Light of Hope project.  Cathedrals across the country will be joining together to bring hope to their communities and to pray for all those who are a beacon of hope.  All Souls' Day is a day to remember relatives and friends who are no longer with us and the Cathedral will be open for prayer and to light a candle, as usual, during the day.  Take a walk in your household or bubble on the evening of the 1st November) and see our Cathedral as a beacon of light and hope.

If you have a pastoral need or prayer request, please email the Canon Pastor

Watch the Celebration of Lay Ministry Service which took place in the Cathedral on Saturday 10th October 2020.
