Join us this Advent and Christmas

This year the Cathedral Community will be sharing in the season of Advent in the usual way with services throughout December; culminating in the great festival of Christmas. At Christmas we celebrate that God came to earth in the birth of Jesus and lived among us.

The Cathedal will host different groups for services and concerts throughout December. This enables local people to prepare for Christmas as organisations such as Lincolnshire Police and the Lincolnshire Co-operative bring staff and their families.

St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice host their annual ‘light up a life’ walk to the Cathedral which finishes with a blessing at the West Front around the 30ft Christmas Tree; donated by Doddington Hall each year.

This year will also see the introduction of the Dean’s Advent Calendar which will add another dimension to Advent and opportunity to reflect. All are invited and welcome to worship at the Cathedral.
