BRADFORD Cathedral will launch its Advent and Christmas events and services programme this weekend.

This year’s theme for Advent and Christmas at Bradford Cathedral is ‘Follow The Star: The Great Invitation’ – and people are invited to visit the Cathedral this December for events and services.

Advent begins on Sunday, November 27 – and the season starts with the switching on of the Cathedral’s ‘Star in the Tower’, which this year is also joined by the State Gate light curtain, supported by Bradford BID.

The Cathedral will also be decorated with a Christmas tree in the West End, lit up in the seasonal colour of purple, and there will also be two cribs within the State Gate and the Holy Spirit Chapel.

There are many events and services happening which you are invited to attend. Alongside the regular services there is the Advent Procession (November 27), Nine Lessons and Carols (December 23), the Midnight Eucharist (December 24), and the Christmas Day Eucharist.

For families, there is the return of the popular Christingle service on December 11, and the Messy Crib on Christmas Eve.

The Bradford Cathedral Choir will also be singing at half-time at the Bradford City vs Rochdale match at Valley Parade on Saturday, December 17.
