Coronavirus (COVID-19)


The Cathedral is regularly reviewing national advice and guidance, from the government, Public Health England, and the national Church about Coronavirus and how best to keep people safe, and mitigate the spread of infection. 

21 May 2021 UPDATE

As the lockdown restrictions continue to ease, we are looking at how we can safely and effectively begin to reopen the Cathedral to visitors and expand the number of services for which we can welcome a congregation.


Until Saturday 5 June, the Cathedral is open from 12noon to 1.00pm, Tuesday to Saturday, for the Lunchtime Eucharist, which begins at 12.30pm, and from 5.00pm on Friday for Choral Evensong (except Friday 4 June). We also open before the 10.00am Eucharist and 3.30pm Evensong on Sundays.

Our reopening from Tuesday 8 June follows three stages.

Stage I: Public Worship Increases
From Tuesday 8 June daily services of Morning Prayer (9.30am), Eucharist (12.30pm) and Evensong or Evening Prayer (5.15pm, 3.30pm Saturdays) have been available to attend in person, from Tuesday to Saturday. We opened before each service for those attending. This includes additional Choral Evensongs on Tuesday and Wednesday for the first time since March 2020. Only the Sunday Eucharist requires pre-booking.


Stage II: Cathedral Reopens to Visitors
From Tuesday 15 June we will reopen for visitors, from 9.00am to 3.30pm Tuesday to Friday (reopening at 5.00pm for those attending Evensong/Evening Prayer), and until 3.00pm on Saturday. On Sundays we will be open in the morning for those attending services, and from 11.30am to 3.00pm for general visiting.

Stage III: Cathedral Reopens on Mondays & Cathedral Café Reopens
On Monday 21 June our Café will reopen, from 9.30am to 2.30pm Monday to Friday, and the Cathedral itself will be open from Mondays again as well. 


The next Sunday services are available to book via our Eventbrite page here.


From Tuesday 8 June, services will be broadcast as follows:

Monday to Saturday
Morning Prayer at 8.00am

Eucharist (with the Cathedral Choir) at 10.00am

Services are available on Facebook and YouTube.
