Cathedral & Choir

What's On coverThe Cathedral is the College Chapel for the College as well as the cathedral church for the Diocese of Oxford. The beautiful building is home to a vibrant worshipping community with a rich worshipping tradition and a world famous Cathedral Choir. It hosts a wide range of diocesan events, music, art and drama.

Our regular pattern of worship at Christ Church Cathedral

Sundays

8am Holy Communion (1662)

9.45am Matins and Sermon (1662)

11am Choral Eucharist (CW)

6pm Choral Evensong (1662)

Weekdays

7.15am Morning Prayer (CW)

7.35am Holy Communion (CW)

1pm Holy Communion (Wednesdays only) (1662)

6pm Evening Prayer – Choral Evensong (1662)

On Mondays, Evening Prayer is either a said service or, during university term time, sung by the College Choir. On Thursdays, the evening service is usually a Choral Eucharist.

Please note that our services begin five minutes later than ‘normal’ time, because the Cathedral keeps the old ‘Oxford Time’ (i.e. five minutes west of Greenwich). This means 6pm Oxford Time is 6.05pm GMT or BST.
