Following last week’s announcement that public worship is to resume at Chichester Cathedral, we are delighted to provide further information for those wishing to attend.

Services will recommence on Sunday 5th July 2020 at 8.00am with a Book of Common Prayer service; the Eucharist at 9.30am and 11.00am and Said Evening Prayer at 3.30pm.

In line with Government and Church of England guidelines, we have introduced additional measures to ensure that worshippers, as well as those continuing to visit for prayer and reflection, can do so safely. It is important to read this information before attending, details can be found here. Visitors should also be aware that the Café, Shop and on-site toilets are closed.

Worshippers attending services are encouraged to reserve their seat for Sunday Eucharist in advance. To do so, please visit our online booking system. However, please rest assured that places have been allocated for those arriving without advance reservation. Services taking place Monday - Saturday will not require advanced reservation, unless stated otherwise.

The Dean of Chichester, The Very Reverend Stephen Waine, said:

“It is with great pleasure that we can announce the resumption of public services. We look forward to welcoming worshippers and in this way continuing the Cathedral’s witness to the love of God for his people which has endured in this city for 900 years.”

A schedule of future services can be found here.


The Cathedral also recognises that many people will be unable to visit for a number of reasons and would like to reassure everyone that digital resources including Online Services, will continue to be available to access at home.
