Join York Minster’s worship to mark the start of Advent at the cathedral or from the comfort of your home.
An atmospheric and breath-taking candlelit service of music, readings and prayers for Advent, in celebration and anticipation of the arrival of Jesus Christ, the Light of the World. The service will include music from the Choir of York Minster and feature the world premiere of the winning entry from our Grand Organ Composers’ Competition (19 and over category) to celebrate the completion of the instrument’s once-in-a-century refurbishment.
Free tickets must be booked in advance for this service to help us safely manage numbers inside the cathedral. Tickets will be available from 10am on Tuesday 19 October 2021 via this page or by calling 01904 557200.
The service will also be livestreamed via our YouTube channel and this page so you can enjoy the service from the comfort of your own home.
Our 11am Advent Sunday service will also be livestreamed on this date.
