Ely Cathedral


Ely Cathedral is not only a part of the Church of England, it is also a part of the Worldwide Anglican Communion.

Links with the Church both in this country and throughout the world help us to learn about life in different communities and cultures to our own, and keep our eyes open to the length and breadth of the Church.

Ely Cathedral enjoys links with:

Zanzibar Cathedral, Tanzania, off the eastern coast of Africa.

Exchange visits are a little more difficult, but the Bishop of Zanzibar has preached at the Cathedral, and we are learning about life as a minority faith in a very different part of the world.

Lutheran Church of the North Elbe

Ely Cathedral is part of the Diocese of Ely's link with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of the North Elbe in northern Germany.
