Special Services
The Cathedral is used regularly for major Services apart from the daily round of worship. This might be the annual Ordination of Priest and Deacons, the Christmas Carol Service, the Justice Service, the Annual Service for the Blessing of Animals and the Act of Remembrance on Remembrance Day.

For the last few years the Cathedral has hosted every other year a Service for the donors and recipients of organ transplants. About three times a year an Evening Service is held using the chants and music of the Taize community.
