Belfast Cathedral - Christmas Eve On-Line Service of Lessons and Carols

This is a year like no other, with carol services and gatherings cancelled as a result of Covid restrictions.

However, different as it may be, you are warmly invited to join us remotely to share in the Belfast Cathedral Service of Lessons and Carols for Christmas, from 7.30pm to 8.30pm on Christmas Eve.

You can access the service through the Belfast Cathedral Facebook page:

The Carol Service will remain on Facebook until Midnight on Christmas Eve.

Christmas Carols will include "Once in Royal David's City", "O Little Town of Bethlehem" and Hark!the Herald Angels Sing".
