Nine Lessons and Carols

Offered every year in Truro Cathedral since 1880, the service of Nine Lessons and Carols reflects in words and music on this special time as we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus.

Truro Cathedral Choir will be singing at this service with its boy choristers. Please download the order of service

This service is now fully booked to physically attend and tickets are no longer available.  However, this service will also be live-streamed on this page at 7pm and the replay will be available to watch on this page after the service has finished. If you have any problems viewing the live-stream or replay, please visit our YouTube channel

This Christmas, and indeed throughout the year, attendance at services and entry to the cathedral remains free. The cathedral relies on public donations to meet its costs. Truro Cathedral has been significantly financially affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and is finding ways to support its community through activities such as live-streaming. If you would like to donate online to support its ongoing work please visit the cathedral JustGiving page.
