Christmas Season 2020

Services this Advent and Christmastide

Below are listed the Services which had been planned for this Advent and Christmas. As we hardly need say, these were all subject to the rules and regulations in force from time to time to keep the pandemic under control.

Following the move to Alert Level 4, and after consultations with the Cathedral Team and advice from the Bench of Bishops, it was, regretfully,  necessary to cancel the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols on Wednesday 23rd December, and to restrict the Christmas Eve ‘Festival’ and the Midnight Mass to participants in the services, but no congregation.

Nevertheless these two services were live-streamed and can still be watched  –  see below for the link to watch those online. On Christmas Morning the service at 10.30 went ahead with a much-reduced congregational limit, but was not live-streamed.
