Despite the extraordinary times in which we find ourselves this year, we are offering a full range of Advent and Christmas services, which you can join in person (having pre-booked your place).
A “Carousel of Carol Services” take place at Newcastle Cathedral on Saturday 19th December and Thursday 24th December (Christmas Eve).
These 6 “bite-sized” Carol Services will each last only 30 minutes, and numbers will be limited to 40 per service to preserve social distancing.
You may sit to listen, or wander quietly around the East End of the Cathedral, where our Crib Scene will be on display, lighting a candle for prayer if you wish. The Cathedral Choir will sing from our stunning Quire, and there will be short readings and prayers for the season.
Book for 2pm or 3pm for a more relaxed service, suitable for all ages to enjoy together.
Book for 4pm if you would prefer something more formal.
Sadly, though understandably, singing along with the Choir is discouraged to help minimise the transmission of COVID-19.
To attend any of these services in person, it is essential that you book your place in advance, as social distancing means that space in the Cathedral is very limited at present.
If you do not have internet access, please ring the Cathedral Secretary on 0191 232 1939, any weekday morning before Monday 14th December and she will take your booking, if spaces remain available.
Please don’t delay, as these services will be very popular.
