Sunday 31 May


In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that all public worship is suspended until further notice.

Hereford Diocese plans to continue offering an online service every Sunday. All these online services will premier via our Facebook feed and will be available later via the YouTube channel.

This Sunday there will be a Thy Kingdom Come event at 3pm

This weekend we have another service on BBC One as part of the Sunday Worship series. At the time of going to press, the BBC One online programme schedule states this will be broadcast at 11am but has been subject to changes in scheduling each week.

The Bishop of Hereford, the Rt Rev Richard Jackson, leads a service for Pentecost Sunday from the city's historic cathedral, with hymns recorded by Songs of Praise in 2017. The service was filmed before the closure of all church buildings was announced.

BBC local radio stations will also be broadcasting services live and the Church of England will be offering an online service.
