Services and Sermons at Chester Cathedral

Though Chester Cathedral is an esteemed tourist attraction, it remains a fully-functioning church with over 20 weekly services. Our regular schedule of services is below though we often have additional, special services. If you are travelling in, please ring our office at 01244 324 756 to double check service times, consult our Service Schemes below or click here to view our monthly calendar.

The service sheet for Palm Sunday, 5 April is available to download here.
The service sheet for Passion Sunday, 29 March is available to download here.
The service sheet for our Mothering Sunday service on Sunday 22 March 2020 is available to download here.
At this time, more than ever, Chester Cathedral needs your support. To enable online services to continue, to maintain the church and its estate, and to enable us to re-open and operate the Cathedral once we’re advised it is safe to do so. Please support us by visiting our JustGiving Page here, or by clicking here:


Online Worship

From 30 March 2020 Evening Prayer at Chester Cathedral will move to enable you to join us on screen. Please email to register.

Simply type in the Subject field, “Register for Evening Prayer” and you will receive an email link each day (which will connect you to Evening Prayer).

Your email will be stored securely by Chester Cathedral and will only be used to send you a daily (Monday to Friday) link to Evening Prayer.  Your email address will be deleted once worship resumes, and you may remove yourself from the above list by doing the same but typing “Unregister for Evening Prayer” in the Subject field.

Whilst worship is suspended a Sunday service will be broadcast on our official YouTube channel.

Sermons and podcasts

We hope to include podcasts of our Sunday sermons in this space. Please bear with us as we work towards this. For now, you can download our sermons from recent months in PDF format.

Also, click to our Official YouTube channel to listen to recent choral services and sermons.
