A note on Special Services

The Cathedral hosts services for a wide range of people and organisations who want to celebrate and commemorate the important events in life, and their faith journey. We host baptisms and weddings, funerals and memorial services. We also hold services for local schools, for charities and businesses and for civic partners, like the legal profession. We also host services for the wider church - including ordination services for those who are becoming deacons and priests in the Diocese of Bristol. If you would like to ask about arranging a service please contact the Executive Assistant.
