Join York Minster’s worship to mark the start of Advent with 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, which will include music from the Choir of York Minster, starts in darkness before a single flame is used to spread light through the cathedral, with candles held by each member of the congregation.

Free tickets are required to attend the service in person, these tickets are now full booked.

The service will be livestreamed on our YouTube channel via the link below so that you can enjoy the service from the comfort of your own home. You may like to light a candle in your window as we await the arrival of Christ together.

Doors open at 4.30pm

Free tickets for this service are now fully-booked. We kindly ask that if you have booked tickets and realise you cannot attend the service, to please return them so others can enjoy the Procession. You can do this by contacting our Bookings Team on 01904 557200. 

Our 11.00am Advent Sunday service will also be livestreamed on this date.
