Getting married in Ely Cathedral

At Ely Cathedral Baptisms usually take place throughout the year during the main Sunday Eucharist at 10.30am and there may be more than one child (or adult) being baptised at this special service. This is a joyful occasion when the whole church family gathers together to welcome their newest members. It is important that the newly baptised and their families feel part of the Christian community as Baptism is just the beginning of living out the Christian life. Here at Ely Cathedral we try to provide opportunities for you and your child to grow in your faith. There are also opportunities to learn more about the Christian faith as an adult. You may wish to be baptised yourself or you may wish to affirm your own baptismal promises and commit more fully to live the Christian life in a special service of 'Confirmation'. We host a variety of worship here at the Cathedral and there are various ways you can get involved in Cathedral life. Please get in touch if you want to explore anything further and we'd be happy to chat.

There is absolutely no charge for baptism, it is a gift which the cathedral offers freely and lovingly, but some people do like to give a donation to help towards the work and maintenance of this magnificent Cathedral.
