IT WILL be obvious from this picture that
Sheffield Cathedral is in no fit state to contain
the large congregation expected for the main Easter Day eucharist.
The main building work going on means that there simply will not be
enough space. So a solution has been found. Just as there have been
pop-up coffee shops, pop-up art exhibitions, and pop-up nightclubs,
now they are having a Pop-up Cathedral.
At the invitation of the Master Cutler, the cathedral is moving,
for one morning only, to Cutlers' Hall, just across the road. The
service will be an orchestral sung eucharist, at which the Bishop
of Sheffield will both preside and preach. The setting for the
service will be the Schubert Mass in G, and the orchestra will be
drawn from some of the finest musicians in the region.
