Message from The Dean of Ely

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

Dear Friends,

As we look forward to being fully open and operational in the coming weeks, we continue to work together to ensure the cathedral remains a safe and welcoming place for everyone. We hope to open to visitors on May 17 in line with the government roadmap. Until that time, we will continue open for Private Prayer and Silent Reflection between 10am and 2pm, Monday to Friday.

In terms of public services, Morning Prayer will take place at 7.30am, followed by Holy Communion at 8am, with Evensong or Evening Prayer at 5.30pm, Monday - Saturday. Please observe the safety measures in place and sign in as you attend. Sunday Services are also open to all and seats no longer need to be booked in advance.

We will continue to offer worship remotely by live streaming services. We are delighted with the response we have had from people all over the world who have enjoyed joining us in worship. Details and information on how to access services online is available on our Worship pages on this website. You can also keep in touch with us and keep up to date with our activities via our social media channels.

We appreciate that for many, this period of lockdown has been particularly challenging. As we look forward to the easing of lockdown and the summer months ahead, we are aware that some will continue to struggle and may experience difficulty in being able to go about their daily routine. If you, or anyone you know, needs any help or support please do get in touch via email on gro/lardehtacyle//troppus

Our prayers and thoughts remain with those who have lost loved ones during this time especially those bereaved as a result of this pandemic.

In the meantime we continue to hope and pray for a more peaceful and settled year ahead.

With my prayers and best wishes,
