Easter at St Paul’s Cathedral

This Holy Week and Easter join us in the Resurrection Journey: From the Cross to New Life.

Since the earliest days in the life of the church, people have marked the events of each day, following Jesus from his triumphal entrance into Jerusalem on the day that we call Palm Sunday, through to the momentous events of Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, the sheer desolation of Holy Saturday and the joy of Easter Day.

Safety remains the number one priority and social distancing measures unfortunately mean numbers are limited for our in-person services.

Seats are still available to attend all our services. Advance Bookings (free tickets) are encouraged and can be obtained via Trybooking here: https://www.trybooking.com/BOYVH. QR Code Check-in is still be required on arrival to the Cathedral.
