The news headlines are deeply troubling: terrorist attacks in our cities; the uncertainty of Brexit; mounting tension with North Korea. It can be tempting to lose hope and despair. At Easter, we celebrate that goodness is stronger than evil, love is stronger than hate, light is stronger than darkness, life is stronger than death. Even in the darkest times, with God there is always hope and it is always possible to make the world a better place for all God’s children. You are welcome to celebrate new life at St Edmundsbury Cathedral..

Every day of the year, Morning and Evening Prayer is said or sung and the Eucharist is celebrated. In addition, thousands of people come from all over Suffolk and beyond to worship God at special services throughout the year, which celebrate our common life and acknowledge our common concerns.

Monday-Friday
7.30 am Holy Eucharist (Bank Holidays at 9.00 am)
