Worship & Music
For more than 1,400 years God has been worshipped in Canterbury Cathedral. With its roots in the Benedictine tradition, the ongoing daily pattern of morning and evening prayer and Eucharist (Holy Communion) continues the prayers and praises of countless generations.

Can you help us?
In these unprecedented times we still need your help. Having lost most of our visitor income since the pandemic began, we are faced with huge financial challenges. The Cathedral’s survival now depends on the generosity of people who care about it. A donation of any size will be deeply appreciated. Can you help us? Please click here to donate. You will be supporting the running costs of this special place which has served its community for 1,400 years.
We hope to continue that ministry for years to come. Please consider helping us. Thank you.
