Sunday Services

The Priory is now open for public worship.  In order to accommodate everyone who wishes to attend we will be changing the pattern of Sunday services.

08.00 am Holy Communion BCP service,
10.00 am Priory Eucharist with sermon (live streamed) We will continue to stream our Sunday service “live” at 10.00am on our Facebook page, but you will be able to follow the service any time after that. You can follow the service by downloading the order of service Trinity 17_20 Harvest & Pet Service
6.30 pm Choral Evensong (live streamed).

There will also be the 10.15 Holy Communion (BCP) service on Tuesdays.

Services will last no more than 45 minutes and there will be no congregational singing until we are advised that this is safe and possible.

For the 10.00 am and 6.30 pm services pre-booking is required as numbers will be limited in order to observe 2 metres social distancing.  Bookings should be made by 6.00 pm Saturday evening.  We will try to accommodate anyone who arrives without making a booking but it may not always be possible.

However, if you develop symptoms of Covid-19 within this period, you must let us know, and all others who were present with you will be contacted and told to self-isolate for 14 days.

10am Eucharist

Sunday 4th October 10am (Celebration of God’s Creation) – Our Harvest and Pet Service

On Sunday, 4th of October at 10.00am Lancaster Priory will be opening up its doors to those of a furry, feathered or fluffy persuasion! We are especially delighted as our Pet Blessing Eucharist Service coincides with the feast of St Francis of Assisi, remembered for his love of animals and nature, and also with World Animal Day. It will be a lovely way to say thank you for pets and all the happiness they bring us.

Please consider the comfort of your pets when attending and make sure that smaller animals (cats, guinea pigs, rabbits etc.) are in well-secured cages. Dogs should be secured on a lead.

Sunday 11th October 10am –

4.00pm Family Eucharist Service

Our new Family Eucharist Service will be starting on 11th October for everyone to enjoy. Twice a month on the second and fourth Sundays at 4pm, we will be inviting children and their families to worship and learn together. The service will be adapted, so there will be something for everyone. It is an informal and relaxed service where our church family can worship together. The service takes a more child centred approach with much greater involvement by the children from the congregation.  Children can read the lessons, prayers and participate in presentations.

Sunday 11th October 4.00pm –

6.30pm Choral Evensong

4th October 6.30pm –
11th October 6.30pm –

It is mandatory to wear face masks as you enter and leave the Priory. You will be guided to your seats by a steward, and we ask you to take your seat in the pew to which you are guided. (We will be filling the church starting at the front.)
Unfortunately, singing is not yet permitted, so there will be no hymns, though we are able to appreciate the organ music.
No collection is taken—but we hope you will make an electronic payment, or join our Planned Giving Scheme.
Holy Communion will be given (only in one kind) at the chancel step, please follow the direction of the stewards, and keep social distancing as you line up and return to your seat via the side aisles.
At the end of the service, please await the directions of the stewards, as we will be leaving church starting with the back rows first.
If you wish to chat with people, please do so outside the Priory, respecting the wearing of face-masks and keeping social distancing.

We continue to do all we can to ensure the safety of our congregation members, and are grateful for your patience as we work through these challenging times together as the people of God in this place.


We will continue to be live streaming morning prayer and some services from our Facebook page.
