Worship & Music

We extend our heartfelt condolences to Her Majesty the Queen on the news of the death of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. https://lincolncathedral.com/prince-philip-duke-of-edinburgh/   x
The act of worship stands at the heart of what we do at Lincoln Cathedral.

The building in all its splendour, and the community in all its dedication, were founded and sustained to achieve a single purpose: lifting every one of us, from casual visitor to devout pilgrim, and bringing us as close as possible to God.

We welcome everyone and strongly encourage you, whatever your own beliefs or background, to join us by taking a few minutes out of your busy schedule to empty yourself of care and reflect on the wonder and vastness of this magical place, whilst listening to some of the most exquisite music to be heard anywhere in the world.

From Ash Wednesday (17th February 2021) we will begin a gradual resumption of public worship within the current guidelines and limitations.  Please see this weeks service sheet for full details.

The Cathedral also remains open in a limited way for private prayer, and access to the Retro-choir (St Hugh’s Shrine) for this will be through the Judgement Porch at the south-eastern corner of the Cathedral.

Services are also available to join on https://www.facebook.com/Lincoln.Cathedral
