Choral Evensong Cathedral


On Sunday 11 October, Choral Evensong will be open to worshippers again at St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds, for the first time since March. The service takes place at 3.30 pm and anyone wishing to attend must pre-book a place by emailing by Saturday lunchtime.


‘We are absolutely delighted to be able to welcome people back to Choral Evensong,’ comment the Very Reverend Joe Hawes, Dean of St Edmundsbury. ‘Although we have continued to livestream services throughout lockdown, it is wonderful to worship in the inspiring space of the Cathedral building, now enhanced with choral music.’


Evensong is drawn almost entirely from the Bible. Its primary purpose is to proclaim the wonderful works of God in history and in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Its secondary purpose is to evoke from the worshipper a response of praise, penitence, prayer, and obedience. Much of the English of the service is the language spoken and written by our ancestors more than four hundred years ago. It may sound old-fashioned but its meaning is not out of date.


Choral Evensong and other services throughout the week are also livestreamed via the Cathedral’s Facebook page
