Choral Evensong / Evening Prayer

Daily (5.30pm weekdays, 4.30pm Saturday, 3pm Sunday)

This service is focused on the singing of texts taken directly from the Bible, in addition to hearing the Bible read and prayers. The service is usually sung by one of the Cathedral Choirs.

All are warmly welcome to join us. Occasionally we are able to live-stream Choral Evensong; when this is happening, a note will be included in our daily calendar.

The latest Music List is uploaded here.
