Worship & Music

Worship & Music at Lincoln Cathedral
Worship & music is at the heart of what we do at Lincoln Cathedral.

The cathedral was built to be a place where prayer is made and worship offered on behalf of the Bishop of Lincoln and the communities that make up the Diocese of Lincoln. This remains central to our daily life.  Our 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 into the presence of 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 beauty and vastness of this wonderful place.  There are many opportunities to engage in our spiritual life – from lighting a candle to joining in one of our daily services.  This range from the quiet of Morning Prayer and the lunchtime Eucharist to the exquisite combination of words and music that come together in the beauty of Evensong – a service that marks the end of most days at the cathedral.
