Services

The Cathedral is more than a historic building. It’s a hard-working church open every day of the year. Every week, we celebrate 16 regular services, plus many other services throughout the year. Thousands join us for our special celebrations at Christmas and Easter.

We have now introduced a live streaming service, which is available here.

The Cathedral is first and foremost a living place of Anglican liturgy and worship, with many of our services sung by our superb Cathedral Choirs.

The regular pattern of daily services has been part of this place since monastic times. We start and finish each day with Morning and Evening Prayer. We also break bread and share wine in Holy Communion every day of the year.

The great seasonal celebrations of Christmas and Easter are especially busy times for us, as people join us from all over the world to mark Christ’s birth, passion, death and resurrection, the most important dates in our Christian calendar.

Many other services take place throughout the year, including special community and seasonal services such as our Harvest Festival. Usually on Sundays and special festivals, we also preach sermons.

All our services are free of charge, and any one can attend.
