Worship

Attending Bradford Cathedral for worship

Worship is the heartbeat of Cathedral life and is offered daily through online Morning and Evening Prayer and the seven services each week.

Anyone is welcome to participate in any service; no previous experience is necessary. For each service there is a booklet which guides you through the service which includes readings from the Bible, Prayers, the sharing of Communion and, at some services, singing and musical contributions from the choir and organist.

The main weekly service is on Sunday at 10:30 am which is also live-streamed. You can download an Order of service in advance or use the Proclaim app instead of an Order of Service. There are large print versions of the Order of Service available and a hearing enhancement loop.

For more information on using the app, please see the ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ section below.
