Join us for Holy Week and Easter 2019

News

We look forward to welcoming you to our services and events during Lent, Holy Week and Easter. Come to the Cathedral to rest, worship and to encounter God’s hope through Christ at this special time.

Beginning on Ash Wednesday, Lent is when Christians remember the forty days and nights Jesus spent in the wilderness being tested by Satan. Holy Week and Easter is 
the memorial of the death and resurrection of Christ.

If you’re looking for further inspiration sign up to the Church of England’s #LentPilgrim daily reflections through to Easter and from Easter Day to Ascension Day with #EasterPilgrim reflections.
