On Good Friday, Christians remember the crucifixion of Jesus.

York Minster is given to prayer and worship today. All are welcome, whether to join acts of worship, or to pray on their own.


12noon – The Three Hours’ Devotion with the Liturgy of Good Friday

We begin the Three Hours’ Devotion with a service of meditation, music and prayers with periods of silence and addresses given by the Dean of York, the Holy Week Preacher.

At 1.30pm, the formal Liturgy of Good Friday will commence with a sung passion, veneration of the cross and a sermon by the Dean of York.

This service will also be livestreamed via our YouTube channel.

The Choir of York Minster will sing traditional Lenten music including Antonio Lotti’s anthem for 8 voices, Crucifixus etiam pro nobis.
