Covid-19 Update – Private prayer and Public Worship

In line with government guidance, Lincoln Cathedral remains open in a limited way for private prayer and worship, however, we ask people to take seriously the advice to stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives.

Please note Lincoln Cathedral is open for individual private prayer and public worship only.
Visits to the building for other reasons are not permitted.

Sung Eucharist at 10am on Sundays and Choral Evensong at 5.30pm on Tuesdays and Fridays will continue to be streamed live on the Cathedral’s Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/Lincoln.Cathedral – so that people can join us in prayer without needing to be physically present.

We encourage all those who are able to take part in the services from home, to do so.

The Cathedral is open daily for private prayer:

Monday to Saturday – 10am – 1pm
Sunday – 11.30am to 1pm
