The new school year is now well underway and memories stir of our own schooling and education. So we are prompted to reflect on how we continue to learn through all that life throws at us, through new experiences, as well as seeing old experiences in new ways. The journey of faith is a journey of continuing learning. There is always more to learn about God, about other people and about ourselves. You are welcome to continue your learning at St Edmundsbury Cathedral.

 The ground on which St Edmundsbury Cathedral is built has been holy ground for over a thousand years. 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.

 Our regular pattern of services is:

7.30 am Holy Eucharist (Bank Holidays at 9.00 am)
8.45 am Morning Prayer
5.30 pm Evening Prayer (Monday) or Evensong (Tuesday-Friday)

1 pm Holy Eucharist

8.45 am Morning Prayer

8.00 am Holy Eucharist
10.00 am Sung Eucharist (on feast days Solemn Eucharist)
11.30 am Mattins (except 1st and 5th Sunday)

Please note: during certain times of the churches year e.g. Christmas, Easter, feast days; Bank holidays and the summer season this pattern may be subject to change, please see detailed Service Schedules above. These are uploaded every two weeks.
