Christmas Day Service

Christmas Day is a great day of rejoicing, when families and friends get together and presents are given as a sign of the love that we have for each other. This is a symbol of God’s love for us who sent his Son Jesus Christ into the world to redeem us – there can be no greater gift! The Solemn Eucharist on Christmas Day begins at 10 am and will be led by the Bishop of Truro. The service will contain the traditional readings, congregational carols and carols sung by the cathedral choir. All are welcome to come along and to begin Christmas Day celebrations in this special way. Booking is not necessary for this service. 

In light of the government’s ‘Plan B’ announcement, wearing a mask is compulsory in all areas of the cathedral unless you are exempt.

This service will be live-streamed on this page for those who are unable to attend in person. The replay will be available to watch on this page and our YouTube channel after the service has finished. If you have any problems viewing the live-stream or replay, please visit our YouTube channel
