Attending Bradford Cathedral for worship

For acts of worship, we continue to request advance booking which can be done through the website. We also continue to offer an online stream of our Sunday morning Eucharist and other key services.

When coming to pray during our opening hours, other activities may be taking place in the Cathedral, and certain areas may be inaccessible. You are welcome to use one of our side chapels for personal prayer.

 

COVID Guidance

Last updated: Monday 28th February 2022

Following the government ending all Covid related restrictions we will continue to take a balanced approach, with our guidance remaining unchanged. This means that, wherever possible, we will still allow for social distancing, and hand sanitiser and face coverings will continue to be available. There will be no changes to liturgical practices for the time being, including use of the common cup during the Eucharist. However, this will be reviewed in the near future.

For further reference you can find out more in the Church of England guidance or the Government website.

 

 

Hearing Loop

We operate a hearing loop at the Cathedral, which is available during any service or event. All you need to do is turn your hearing aid to the T position.

The hearing loop covers the nave and transepts, the West End, St. Aidan's Chapel and the Chapter House, but is unavailable in the Chancel, Sanctuary or Lady Chapel.

If you require any assistance or have any issues with the hearing loop whilst visiting Bradford Cathedral for an event or service, please speak to a member of the team.

Prof Ben Quash: Holy Week reflections - This is my Body, Given for You

On the Feet and the Knees - YouTube Link

On the Hands and the Side - YouTube Link

On the Breast and the Face - YouTube Link

You can also view all three reflections together in one video.


Professor Ben Quash is non-residentiary Canon Theologian of Bradford Cathedral, as well as Professor of Christianity and the Arts at King’s College London—a post he has occupied since 2007. 

On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of Holy Week, he presents three talks as part of 'This is my Body, Given for You'

Coming live to Bradford Cathedral via video link, Prof Quash will follow the medieval Christian tradition of reflecting on different parts of Jesus’s body in turn, as a devotional exercise that dates back to medieval times.

"It was this tradition that Buxtehude set to music in what may have been the first ever Protestant oratorio, the Membra Jesu Nostri. And it was the meditation on the last of these body parts - his face - which found its way into our Holy Week worship in the form of the hymn O Sacred Head Sore Wounded.

Our 21st-century journey with Jesus’s body will use a series of works of art by artists both ancient and modern, to aid our meditations."

You can find out more about Prof. Ben Quash on our website.
