During the coronavirus outbreak, we will use this page to link to any updates from the Cathedral, so that you don't have to search for them in different parts of the website. These are loosely organised into the key areas of the Cathedral's work.

All public worship is suspended, but clergy will continue to observe daily prayers at home. All the times of services, and links to online resources to allow you to join in yourself, are on the first link below.

We hope to provide video and audio recordings, or to live stream, every Sunday morning at 10.30am. You can watch or listen again by following the second link below.

Although the Easter Monday Fun Day on 13th April has been cancelled, but we will be posting video and instruction sheets online so that you don't miss out on Easter makes to celebrate resurrection and new life! Check back here for details.

Our knowledgeable volunteer guides are also busy working on blog posts about various aspects of the Cathedal's fascinating history. You can follow the blog here: Tales from Tour Guides.
