Visiting our Worship Services

We have different types of Services here in various languages. Generally, those in the Nave ( old sanctuary) are liturgical, and the ones held at the New Sanctuary (at basements 1 & 2 beneath the Welcome Center/Cathedral Cafe are modern, informal or contemporary. Look here for details of our Services, or find out what's happening this weekend. We also have facilities and Sunday School for young children. Do ask if help is needed. All our worship venues are handicap-access friendly. Again do ask for help if needed. 

We serve light refreshments after most of our Services. Do have a cuppa on us and make new acquaintances. Our clergy and pastors will be available to meet you.

You can also visit The Cathedral Cafe to chill out. 

As for parking, there are limited facilities available at the Cathedral. As such, we advise Visitors to park at the surrounding carparks on Sunday.

FAQ

Do we need to pre-book a group tour?
Yes. Admission and our guided tours are free. No tickets are required. But do contact us for availability of the main worship hall, the Nave, before visiting. As the Cathedral has Saturday and Sunday Services, and some Weekday Services, pre-booking ensures that the Nave is available for a visit. There are no tours on Sundays. Saturday tours are strictly by appointment and because of the many events that take place on Saturdays, a time slot is not always available.

To avoid disappointment, group organisers should book visits in advance and this can be arranged at welcomecentre@cathedral.org.sg

What is included in a tour?
Admission to St Andrew's Cathedral includes access to the Cathedral's main worship hall — the Nave — and access to restricted areas such as the Nativity Chapel & East Windows.

Is there a minimum or maximum group size?
No. There is no minimum or maximum group size for group admission but we do ask for groups of over 15 visitors to let us know of their visit plans in advance. This is so that we can discuss arrangements together such as reservation of holding rooms and possible staggering of arrival.

Where do we meet?
Visitors can meet our Guides / Docents at the Welcome Centre / Café.
