Advent & Christmas Services

Welcome to our Advent & Christmas Services

'O Come All Ye Faithful, Joyful and Triumphant'

You are warmly invited to join us at any of our services below.

We very much look forward to sharing our Christmas services with you this year, wherever you may be, and hope you enjoy a heartwarming Christmas experience both in person, or in the comfort of your own home.

Please be aware that our ticketed services are now fully booked. You must have a booking reference to attend. All other services do not require a ticket and you are welcome to just turn up. We recommend arriving early to secure a seat, when the Cathedral has reached capacity we will not be able to allow any further admissions to the service.
