We look forward to welcoming you back to the Cathedral in person in the near future. We are receiving enquiries from parishioners who have asked us how you can continue giving to our parish during the pandemic. There is no expectation to give, but if you would like to give your usual offertory donation or more, you can do so by clicking the donate button to the left. Thank you for your generosity.
Weekly message from the Cathedral Dean
In October we announced that the Cathedral had been awarded a grant of £83,840 from the Arts Council England Culture Recovery Fund, to cover the cost of repairs to the War Memorial Chapel Roof and it’s ancillary buildings.
The fund formed part of the Government’s £1.57 billion package to support the UK’s culture and heritage sectors from the economic impact of Covid-19. Thankfully, we are now able to announce that this work has been successfully completed and that a certificate of completion was issued on Friday, 23rd April. I would therefore like to take this opportunity to express my deep-est gratitude, to all those who have worked so hard in helping to deliver this project on time. A special thanks goes to Duncan Sanderson, the Architect for this particular project, Pinnacle Ltd, the principal contractor, Lisa Heywood, the project manager and Amy Wunderely , our facilities and operations manager, who with her outstanding team, have ensured that the Cathedral has been able to remain open and operate in a safe way during this time.
We are indebted to you all. Thank you!

Road works on Chapel St
On Monday 19th April 2021, A.E. Yates, began carrying out essential repair works to Chapel Street, between its junctions with Adelphi Street and Trinity Way and Great George Street. The works will last for around 6 months and will cause disruption to traffic on Chapel St. If you are visiting the cathedral your journey may be affected.
