Whilst acts of public worship are currently suspended at the cathedral, we have created a list of resources that you may find helpful when worshipping at home. We will be adding to this over the coming weeks and please do contact us if there is anything that you think we are missing.

Holy Week Resources

We have a created and collected an additional set of resources to support our community in worship through Holy Week.

Palm Sunday

BBC One, 10.45 am: Sunday Worship from Hereford Cathedral
As Holy Week begins, the Dean of Hereford, the Very Reverend Michael Tavinor, leads a service for Palm Sunday from the city’s historic cathedral. The programme features hymns recorded for Songs of Praise in 2017.

Hereford Diocese are supporting the initiative to encourage those with access to greenery to decorate their window or front door on Palm Sunday to mark the start of Holy Week. For those who like a creative challenge, below is a video to teach you how to make your own holding cross.
