The Feast of Epiphany

Scroll to explore

Join us at the cathedral and online for special services to mark the Feast of the Epiphany.

Epiphany means a ‘revelation’ and the feast day marks the arrival of the wise men, who, led by a star, find the infant Jesus and bow down before him in worship, offering gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

At the beginning of a new year we reflect on all of our journeying, where we have come from and where we are going, and look to be led by the light of Christ.

The Eucharist for the Feast of the Epiphany will take place in the cathedral at 5.30pm. The service is led by the majestic sound of the organ, and will include movements from the Organ Mass by Nicolas de Grigny (1672 – 1703).


A special pre-recorded service exploring the great Epiphany themes through readings and music from the Choir of York Minster will also be broadcast online here and via our Facebook and YouTube channels at 5.30pm.

Please find the order of service here.
