The Eucharist for the Feast of Candlemas

The season of Christmas and Epiphany draws to a close with the Feast of Candlemas.

Scroll to explore

Forty days after the birth of Christ we recall the day he was presented in the temple. In their old age, Simeon and Anna recognize the child Jesus as their Lord. Jesus is proclaimed as the light of the world and at the same time there is a hint of his future suffering as he begins to turn from the crib to the cross.

To celebrate the occasion, we will be holding a service for Candlemas in the Minster on Wednesday 2 February at 5.30pm. In this service we hold on to Christ the light of the world and pray for the light of God’s love to shine upon us and upon the world in all of its need.

All are welcome, no booking required.

The service will also be livestreamed via this page and our YouTube channel.

The order of service is available here.
