All are welcome to join us- via our website- for a service of words and music on the Seventh Sunday of Easter, 24 May 2020 (Sunday after Ascension Day), using the readings of the principal service of the day, which would normally have been the 10:30am Choral Eucharist at the Cathedral.
This service is a service of the word, with readings, an address, prayers and music both from recordings of the Choir and organ of Salisbury Cathedral and pre-recorded from their homes by members of Salisbury Cathedral Choir.
The spoken parts of the service have been pre-recorded in our houses by members of the clergy. The service is led by the Minor Canon for Young People, the Revd Pete Atkinson, with an address from Canon Edward Probert, Chancellor. Visit this page at 10:30 on 24 May to view the service.
