CRIB SERVICE: In the Cathedral on Christmas Eve there will be a special service for the children at 5.00 p.m. (allowing plenty of time to be tucked up in bed before Santa’s visit).

The Crib is a special visual aid to our Christmas celebrations, and in this short service the children will experience the story of Christmas in a very interactive way as they help to build the Crib scene, which will remain in the Cathedral for the whole of the Christmas/Epiphany season.

We look forward to welcoming any families who would like to join us.
