A statement from Dean Jerry on behalf of the Cathedral Chapter
This Cathedral has always sought to be cautious regarding Coronavirus so that staff, visitors and congregations are protected from infection. In the light of the fact that the ‘stay at home’ message is staying in place and infection rates in Bradford are still relatively high, Chapter is proposing ‘no change’ to our current arrangements until Sunday 28th March, Palm Sunday. On that day we will offer 35 seats at the 10.30am Choral Eucharist.
We have plans for Holy Week and Easter which will involve an act of worship plus an address every day during the week. Depending on government advice this could be either restricted attendance and live-streamed or solely live-streamed. More details soon.
We are also going to live-stream Choral Evensong at 3.30pm on Sunday afternoons from the 7th March in addition to the usual 10.30am Sunday service.
We can be more positive about the future but we also need to maintain a conservative approach.
Morning and evening prayer remain at the same times, as well as our opening Wednesday – Saturday 2-4pm for personal prayer
