Welcome to the new-look Cathedral Website!

Come in, browse around, make yourself at home! From contact details of the Cathedral staff to lists of the music at the next Sunday service, interesting information about our beautiful building, and lots of news (and archived news) of People and Places connected to the Cathedral family – it’s all here.
