The Coronation of King Charles III

The Coronation of King Charles III is a historic moment in the life of our nation.

The Coronation ceremony, which will take place at Westminster Abbey on Saturday 6 May and conducted by The Archbishop of Canterbury, will be the centrepiece of the Coronation weekend (6-8 May). It will be a service rooted in Christian symbolism, reflecting the King's role today whilst looking to the future.

The ceremony will be followed by a day of community celebration (The Coronation Big Lunch, 7 May) and a day of volunteering and service (The Big Help Out, 8 May).

Building on themes of community, faith and service, the Coronation weekend will be a celebratory moment, a chance for people to come together and for churches to share an invitational message about the Christian faith.

The Church of England is sharing a range of resources for churches, individuals and families to use to mark the Coronation weekend.
