Happy New Year to you!
The country is now in a national lockdown. The guidance for places of worship is that we can remain open for services and private prayer. We will keep the Cathedral's opening times under review but at present they are as listed below.
The Cathedral is open for prayer at the usual times:
Monday - Saturday 11.00 am - 3.00 pm (closed on Wednesday)
Sunday 1.00 - 4.00 pm
Visitors to the Cathedral should avoid mixing with people from other households, be particularly careful about social distancing, and wear a face covering if they are able to. Visitors should provide contact details for Track & Trace - check in with the NHS app as you arrive or fill in a form at the door.
Cathedral services supended
The Dean, in consultation with Chapter and local public health officials, has taken the difficult decision that Cathedral worship will be online-only from Sunday 10th January onwards. You can read the Dean's full statement here.
On Sundays, the Cathedral Eucharist will be live-streamed at 10.45 am. Choral Evensong will be live-streamed at 5.15 pm on Sundays and 6.30 pm on Thursdays. Other services in the building are temporarily suspended.
Full details of services are on the Worship online page, together with resources and links for live-streamed services and for prayer at home.
Please continue to pray for people who are worried, for medical staff, for key workers and for people making hard decisions.
