A Message from the Dean

Welcome to Ely Cathedral's website which I hope will give you a glimpse of the wonders and glories that the Cathedral has to offer.

Worship has been offered to Almighty God on this site for nearly 1400 years and the Cathedral continues to be a dynamic witness to the presence of God in the world, and of his love and care for each and every one of us.

You will find a warm welcome here reflecting the hospitality and welcome of our Benedictine forebears and more importantly reflecting the welcome that God gives to us all in Jesus Christ.
