Wake up! Wake up! This is the message of these four weeks before Christmas which Christians call Advent. Before we celebrate the birth of Jesus, we are challenged to wake from the sleep of the comfortable and familiar, to wake from the sleep of consumerism and greed, to wake from the sleep of constant entertainment and distraction, to wake from the sleep of not responding to the needs of people who are homeless and poor. Often we are unaware that we are asleep and our version of reality is like a dream in the night compared with light of the day. You are welcome to wake up at St Edmundsbury Cathedral and see reality more clearly.

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:

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