Sunday Services 3 October

Belfast Cathedral - Sunday Services 3 October

You are welcome to join us in person or online at 11.00am on Sunday 3rd October 2021, which is the Eighteenth Sunday after Trinity. The service will be Choral Eucharist with the Reverend Janice Elsdon as preacher and the Dean's Vicar as celebrant. Today the Dean is the Harvest Preacher at Kilmore Parish, in the Diocese of Down.

Please note that today coincides with the delayed Belfast Marathon. Traffic disruption is expected. Details of the route can be found on the following link:

For this reason the service will be led by a cantor. The musical setting is the Communion Service by John Merbecke.

Also please note that only the Academy Street side car park at the cathedral is available for parking this Sunday. The gates to the Talbot Street side car park are currently closed.

Those attending this service are reminded that face coverings must be worn when entering, exiting and moving around within the building. We request that they also be worn during the service itself, but certainly during the parts of the service where there is congregational singing.

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

The service will be livestreamed through the cathedral Facebook page:

You are welcome to join us for Choral Evensong at 3.30pm, when the Cathedral Choir will be present.
