Durham Cathedral is a Christian Church of the Anglican Communion, the Shrine of St Cuthbert, the Seat of the Bishop of Durham and a focus for pilgrimage and spirituality in North-East England.

Our purpose is to worship God, share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, extend a welcome to all who come, celebrate and pass on our rich heritage and discover our place in God’s creation. 

We draw on the 17th century Book of Common Prayer and the more modern Common Worship, as we follow the daily pattern of Morning Prayer, Holy Communion and Evening Prayer (said or sung) with Sung Eucharist on Sundays, Saints' and Feast Days.
