11:00am Sung Eucharist

The 11am Sung Eucharist is the main Cathedral service, with a sermon and choir, using the 1982 Liturgy. On the first Sunday of each month prayers for healing take place in the Lady Chapel.

Communion is celebrated at either the Nave Altar or the High Altar depending on the season. The service is led by the clergy with lay participation in reading (from the Revised Common Lectionary) and intercessions. There is always a choir during term times.
