New Pattern of Worship from 4 October 2020

Since Sunday 4 October, the Cathedral has again be open for public worship on Sundays, as follows:

  • 07:30 Holy Communion according to the South African Prayer Book (SAPB), but AAPB on the 3rd Sunday of the month.
  • 09:30 Holy Communion according to An Anglican Prayer Book (AAPB)

All those attending the services must wear masks, and social distancing and sanitization rules will apply. It is recommended that those who attend the 07:30 service bring their own sanitizer, to sanitize the pews as they leave, ready for the next service.

Regrettably there will be no congregational singing, but Cathedral musicians will provide music at the 09:30 service.

Communion will be in one kind (i.e. wafers only).
