Epiphany Celebration of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church


Main Cathedral
20th January 2018 10:00 - 14:00

The climax of the 24 hours celebration of Timket (Epiphany - the Baptism of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in the river Jordan by St.John the Baptist).

The Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church (EOTC), Diocese of North West Europe, in collaboration with the Liverpool Mekane Kidusan Abune Teklehaimanot parish and all other parish churches under its umbrella will come to celebrate Timket at Liverpool Cathedral for the second time. Timket is a holy, ancient tradition and the most colourful event of EOTC.

While the Timket service climax is between these hours, the Cathedral will have hosted circa 2000 members of the Ethiopian church overnight in preparation for this. You are of course more than welcome to join us, but if you wish to visit the Cathedral for reflection or quiet time, you may want to postpone your visit to another day.
