On Sunday, September 18, at 3 p.m., Liverpool Cathedral will host the official Merseyside Civic Service of Remembrance for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Doors will open at 2pm, and attendance is open to the public. Despite having a limited capacity, the service will not be ticketed.
The service is expected to last around an hour and will include contributions from local organisations that had the late Queen’s patronage.
The National Anthem will be played, and the congregation will sing along with the choir of Liverpool Cathedral.
The Cathedral will close at 12 noon for visitors but the Lady Chapel will remain open for those wishing to sign the Book of Condolence. The chapel will be open from 8am to 6pm with access from the Queens’ Walk.
The Dean of Liverpool, Revd Canon Dr Sue Jones, said:
“Sunday is an opportunity for the people of Merseyside to pay their respects for a monarch who devoted her life to faithful service of her people.
“Her life was a model of devotion displaying her solid faith in God during all that time.
“On behalf of Liverpool Cathedral I am proud to welcome people to this place which the Queen herself visited on several occasions.”
Members of the public remain welcome to leave flowers on the sides of the Rankin steps.
Parking will be limited to Blue Badge holders only and people attending are recommended to park elsewhere.
