Advent and Christmas

"Our theme for this Centenary Advent and Christmas is hospitality, and we invite our whole community to discover the joy of worship in the Cathedral. It’s an ideal opportunity to invite friends and neighbours to the Cathedral and to celebrate together in our beautifully renewed building.

Many of us have our own favourite events: perhaps the quiet and reflective Advent Procession, the ever popular Brass and Voices Concert, or the traditional Carol Service on Christmas Eve.

May you experience the welcome and hospitality of God this Christmas."

The Very Reverend Peter Bradley
