Sunday Services 21 November

Belfast Cathedral - Sunday Services 21 November

You are welcome to join us at 11.00am on Sunday 21st November 2021, which is the Sunday before Advent, known as The Kingship of Christ, and also as "Stir Up Sunday" from the words of the traditional collect. The service will be Choral Eucharist with the Reverend Janice Elsdon as celebrant and Gillian McGaughey, Diocesan Reader, as preacher.

This Sunday marks the return of the Belfast Cathedral Children's Choir, who will sing the Communion motet, Panis angelicus by César Franck. They will also give the  first ever performance of a setting of the Lord's Prayer, written especially for Belfast Cathedral Children's Choir by the american composer Gary Davidson. The Mass setting sung by the Cathedral Choir will be The Truro Eucharist by David Briggs.

We will bid a special welcome to the parents and family members of the Children's Choir who will join us for morning worship.

Those attending this service are reminded that face coverings must be worn when entering, exiting and moving around within the building, and while singing. We also request that they are worn throughout the service.  

Social distancing requirements should be observed during and after the service. Holy Communion will be in one kind only.
