Celebrate Advent and Christmas at the Metropolitan Cathedral

Join us for a wide range of festive events and services that perfectly capture the spirit of Advent and Christmas.

Our seasonal programme has something for everyone, from traditional carol services to inspirational talks aimed at offering some space to pause and reflect in the run up to Christmas.

Advent also provides lots of opportunities to hear our world-famous choir perform at the Cathedral, and they will be leading a series of special Advent Services on Sunday afternoons.

Many of our events are free – we’ve listed a selection of our favourites below, and the full list can be viewed in our events section.
