Join us for Worship

The cycle of worship and prayer throughout the year underpins the life of Exeter Cathedral. Daily services begin with the simple said office of Morning Prayer and often close with Choral Evensong sung by the Cathedral Choir. The Cathedral is home to several Sunday congregations and holds special services at Advent and Christmas, Lent, Holy Week and Easter and at other times throughout the year.


Covid precautions

 

Face Coverings
From 19 July, face coverings in places of worship are no longer mandatory, though a recommendation that people wear face coverings in crowded and enclosed settings remains. The Dean and Chapter leave the decision on whether to wear a face covering up to individuals. During the distribution of communion, the distributing clergy will wear a face covering.

Social Distancing
In line with the relaxation of government restrictions, Exeter Cathedral has reduced the gap between seats to a minimum of one metre. Please be mindful and respectful of one another. Some people still wish to remain distanced and may be anxious about coming into close proximity with others.

Holy Communion
Communion will be offered in one kind only (consecrated bread). If you wish to receive communion, please follow the directions of the sidesmen, joining the appropriate queue and returning to your seats via the side aisles. Gluten-free wafers will be available at all communion stations. If you require a gluten-free wafer, please indicate this to the clergy.

Singing
Singing is now permitted and congregational hymns are included in our services. Where possible, and in line with the Church of England’s guidance and best practice, we will be opening doors around the Cathedral to aid ventilation.
