Easter starts with a bang

Have your say

SHEFFIELD Cathedral’s Easter celebrations will be starting with a bang on Saturday as the church hosts a spectacular rooftop fireworks display.

Hundreds of spectators can see the fireworks just after 8.30pm following a service led by the Bishop of Sheffield, Dr Steven Croft.

The bishop will be back at the cathedral the following day to preach at the Easter Eucharist from 10.30am.

The service will feature music from the cathedral choir, joined by an orchestra to perform Mozart’s Coronation Mass.

Prayers for Royal wedding couple Prince William and Kate Middleton will be said at 3pm on Easter Day during a special choral evensong service.

Canon Simon Cowling said the cathedral is looking forward to a wonderful weekend.
