St Edmundsbury Cathedral in Bury St Edmunds set to reopen for worship

St Edmundsbury Cathedral in Bury St Edmunds is set to reopen for worship this weekend.

Services will be held at 8am and 11am on Sunday, July 5, with livestreamed worship during the week. The cathedral is also open for private prayer.

The Cathedral's management has confirmed a booking system is in operation and that there will be no singing, to stop potential spread of Covid-19.

There will also be gaps between where people are sat.

Very Reverend Joe Hawes, Dean of St Edmundsbury, said: "Much preparation has been done to ensure that worshippers can attend the services safely.

"Worship may look different, at least to start with, but at least whether in the building or via our livestream we can now be reunited in worship."

To book in to a service, please email cathedralinvitations@stedscathedral.org by midday on the Friday prior to the service.
