Please note that due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, the Cathedral is only open by registration for Sunday services and Tuesday mornings for morning prayer and visitors, between 9am - 12noon. Thank you for your understanding.
The following FAQs apply to pre-COVID-19 services.
A warm welcome to the parish of Christ Church Cathedral! We have special meet and greet events for newcomers several times a year that include lunch and a tour of the cathedral.
Join us for coffee after the Sunday 9.15 service (before the 11.00 am service). Pick up a blue mug to indicate that you are a newcomer so that we can introduce you to the community.
The members of our Welcoming Ministry have put together an FAQ section that we hope will answer some of your concerns.
When are your services and when is the Cathedral open? The Cathedral is open daily from 8.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. If you visit the Worship section of this site, you will find information about our Sunday and week day services.
Where are you located and where may I park? The Cathedral is located on Quadra Street at Rockland Avenue. Click HERE for a map and information about parking.
Is the Cathedral wheelchair accessible? The Burdett Avenue parking lot has four designated spaces for those with disabilities and the Rockland lot (Sundays only) has three. There are wheelchair access ramps at both the South entrance on Burdett Avenue and at the West entrance on Quadra Street. There are wheelchair accessible bathrooms and an elevator to provide access to the second floor.
What activities are there available during the week? If you sign up for our weekly e-news, you’ll find many upcoming events and activities listed there. You may also want to check out any of the Ministries under Serve & Grow to see which groups you would like to join. Times and location of meetings are listed on the pages. For example, if you click here, you’ll reach the Walking Group page and be able to access their schedule.
Is there anything available for children during the Sunday services? The Cathedral offers a robust children’s program at the 9.15 a.m. service. Children who want to participate are asked to gather in the soft space at the back of church between 9.05 and 9.15 a.m., when one of the teachers will come to greet them. Children and infants are welcome to remain with their parents or guardians at all services. For those who would find it helpful we have a well-stocked ‘soft space’ at the back of the church near the Quadra Street doors.
