Welcome to Wakefield Cathedral

Wakefield Cathedral is here for everyone, and our doors are open every day of the year. Our vision is to be a place that is safe and welcoming, life-giving, and inspiring – the beating spiritual heart of this wonderful city.

I hope you will enjoy exploring this website, and that it will encourage you to visit us in person. You will discover here a joyful, generous and inclusive group of staff, volunteers and clergy who are determined to support communities across the city and region, and who invite all to walk alongside us and to share in God’s love. I look forward to meeting you soon!

With prayers and good wishes,
Dean Simon

A big thank you to everyone who joined us on Friday night for @BBCRadio4's #AnyQuestions.

We were joined by a great line-up of guests tackling topics from recessions to netball, a wonderful evening hosted here in Wakefield Cathedral.
