Cathedral on the move as the building is closed until 2023


The Leicester Cathedral Revealed project is underway and the extensive building works inside and out mean the Cathedral building is now closed but continues to exist in its mission and work.

Regular Cathedral services will take place nearby (see details below) and it is possible to book to see the tomb of Richard III. You can find out more about this and other Cathedral arrangements by clicking here.

The Sunday 10.30am Cathedral Eucharist happens St Martins House next door to the Cathedral.

Choral Evensong, lunchtime Eucharists, and Morning & Evening Prayer on weekdays are at St Nicholas Church nearby.

As well as continuing to support and care for our Cathedral Community, they are working to provide a welcome to visitors in the city centre and developing new ways of telling the Cathedral story and history. The Cathedral Discipleship programme continues too.

Keep up to date with all the exciting developments that are happening by visiting the Project Director Updates page here.

On Sunday afternoons the Cathedral is visiting parish churches across Leicester and Leicestershire with its choirs, clergy and members of its community. This is the 'Together with Leicester Cathedral' project.To find out more or to see how you can get involved, please email the Cathedral Office.
