The Cathedral to close during national lockdown:

Following the Welsh Government announcement about the two week ‘firebreaker’ lockdown starting on Friday 23rd October at 6pm, there will be no Sunday services in the Cathedral on Sundays 25th October, 1st November or 8th November. The Cathedral will also be closed for prayer from Saturday 24th October until Sunday 8th November inclusive. We will re-open for visitors on Monday 9th November from 2pm to 4pm as usual. Closing time will be at 4pm every day through the winter.

Online Sunday services, online Sunday School, and Thought for the Week on Wednesdays will continue.  The online service for Sunday 8th November will include an Act of Remembrance.

A ‘zoom’ coffee morning will be available at 11.40am on each Sunday when we are closed for services for those who request the link. Please email [email protected] if you would like to take part.
