Children and Young People

Children and young people are welcome at Carlisle Cathedral.

After the Collect children from 8 years old leave to go to the Prior’s Tower to take part in a Young People’s session and return during the Peace. Children under 8 years are  welcome, accompanied by a parent.  

Busy bags are also available from the back of the Cathedral for children who wish to stay with their parents. 

Parents and pre-school children are welcome to use the Canons’ Vestry during the service at any time, where there are play-things available.  

Plus Eucharists are held several times a year to recognise and celebrate the contribution made by young people to the life of the Cathedral.



Citykidz is a group of City Centre churches who love to organise all-age activities and events for families and children.  The group usually hosts events at Epiphany, Easter and an alternative Halloween celebration called Lightfest.  All Citykidz events are listed in the Cathedral diary and the Don't Miss! section of the website.
