About Us

The House of God: A place of prayer, learning, and welcome.

Worcester Cathedral is a magnificent sight as it rises majestically above the River Severn. Worcester has been the seat of a bishopric since the Seventh Century, and the Cathedral was served by monks until the Reformation. St Oswald and St Wulfstan were among the bishops.

Since the Eighteenth Century, the Cathedral has been famous for its part in the annual Three Choirs Festival, the oldest choral festival in existence.

Today the Cathedral is the centre of a vibrant community of clergy and laypeople, offering the praises of God each day, serving the city and diocese of Worcester, and attracting visitors from all over the world.

What we believe

Worcester Cathedral is built for the glory of God, as a witness to our faith in Jesus Christ. Everything we do here has this faith at its heart. We believe that Jesus is the Son of God, and he reveals that God loves us. We believe that his teaching encourages us to love one another and to use our lives in the service of others.

We believe that his resurrection from the dead shows us that death is not the end, and that love and hope conquer hate and despair. Jesus lived around 2000 years ago, but his words, and the story of his life, death and resurrection still have the power to transform us today. You can find out more about the Christian faith here.
