The visit of the wise men to Bethlehem with their famous gifts is celebrated by the Church on 6 January. Their three gifts for the infant Jesus help us reflect on how we live. Gold: do we use our money to help other people and support charities? Frankincense: what do we worship in our lives and how often do we remember God? Myrrh: what do we do practically to support people who are lonely, anxious or sick? The New Year is a good time for resolutions to change how we live. You are welcome at St Edmundsbury Cathedral to reflect on the gold, frankincense and myrrh in your life.

 The ground on which St Edmundsbury Cathedral is built has been holy ground for over a thousand years. Every day of the year, Morning and Evening Prayer is said or sung and the Eucharist is celebrated. In addition, thousands of people come from all over Suffolk and beyond to worship God at special services throughout the year, which celebrate our common life and acknowledge our common concerns.
