Cathedral Closure

From the Dean:

 

Dear friends,

It is with heavy hearts that the Chapter of Bristol Cathedral have decided today that we must once again close the doors of the Cathedral in the light of the rising rates of coronavirus in the city.

Although legally we are permitted to remain open, we cannot encourage people to leave their homes while the dangers of the pandemic are so evidently worsening. We do so with the encouragement of Bishop Viv and in the knowledge that other cathedrals and churches in the region have made similar decisions so we are not alone in this.

We are grateful for the opportunities that we have to pray together and to worship on-line and we shall continue to do so. Our clergy and vergers will maintain the rhythm of prayer in the Cathedral praying for our city, our diocese, and for you each day.

We will review the situation continually, hoping and praying that it will not be long before we can meet again in person. Please do keep in touch via Sarah Evans and let us know if we can pray for you or for anyone in particular need.

Services will be broadcast as follows

Monday to Saturday
Morning Prayer at 8.00am

Sunday
Eucharist (with Lay Clerks) at 10.00am

Services are available on our social media channels.
