Welcome to the Ely Cathedral

Joyfully proclaiming the love of God in Worship, Outreach, Welcome and Care

We are delighted to be able to welcome visitors, worshippers and everyone within the local community back into the Cathedral from Wednesday 2 December. As we enter this season of Advent and Christmas we hope many of you will come in to experience the peace and wonder of the building at this special time of year. The magnificent Christmas Tree will be in situ which we know will bring much festive joy. Social distancing guidelines and policies will remain in place for your wellbeing and safety and members of the Cathedral team will be on hand to offer any assistance required. The Cathedral Gift Shop and The Almonry Restaurant will also be open.

Please note - If you are planning to visit or to attend a service, all tickets and bookings must be made in advance online. Due to the current situation, numbers at services and concerts are restricted and those wishing to attend in person will need to book a place in advance. Similarly visitor tickets are only available to buy online. Please follow the simple directions on our website or contact Ely Cathedral on 01353 667735 and we will be happy to help.

For the remaining period of lockdown, we will be open for prayer and reflection from 12pm to 3pm Monday to Saturday and 12pm - 2pm on Sundays. Everyone is welcome to pray but we ask that you keep a respectful distance from others. We will continue to offer worship remotely by live streaming the 10.30am Sunday Eucharist and Evensong nightly, with music featuring the Choirs of Ely Cathedral. Please visit our Worship pages on the website for full details and updates including Christmas services.  

You can keep in touch with us and keep up to date with our activities via our social media channels. In the meantime we look forward to welcoming you to Ely Cathedral, either virtually or physically, as we go about our daily life in the in the spirit of St. Benedict to joyfully proclaim the love of God in Worship, Outreach, Welcome and Care.
