Holly Bough Service

Main Space 17th December 2023 03:00 PM
Holly Bough Carol Service

Come along to our festive service of readings and carols with the procession of the Holly Bough and Christmas trees through the Cathedral.

Join us on Sunday 17 December to hear our choir sing a range of seasonal carols and hymns in our specially devised Christmas Carol Service.  

Starting at 15:00, the service will mark the journey from the Crib to the Cross. Towards the end of the service, the Holly Bough is carried the full length of the Cathedral. The Holly Bough procession begins near the Christmas Crib and comes to rest at the foot of the Cross, which is the focal point of the reredos above the High Altar. The procession thus marks the route from Crib to Cross and reminds us that the Child whose birth we now celebrate with joy, was also to know the suffering and pain of Calvary.
