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 concerts to intimate services offering reflection and prayer in the run up to Christmas.

Advent also provides lots of opportunities to hear our world-famous choir perform at the Cathedral. Along with leading a series of special Advent services on Sunday afternoons they will also be appearing at our popular carol concert A Celebration of Christmas.

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