It is with much sadness that we have to announce that we are cancelling all church services and events for the foreseeable future.
The UK government and the Church of England have introduced many new measures to curb the spread of the COVID-19 or coronavirus, including cancelling church services and events.
Chichester Cathedral will be streaming services during the Holy Week, on their cathedral website: https://www.chichestercathedral.org.uk/ as follows:
Easter Day, April 12 10:30am
The Eucharist and renewal of Baptism promises
