• Welcome to the Bradford Cathedral website. The Cathedral is one of  Yorkshire’s  ‘hidden gems’. It is the oldest building in the City but it also has a wonderful 20th century extension. Ancient and modern. Visitors are constantly surprised and uplifted by this intimate and yet inspiring place of prayer. Since the first millennium Christians have worshipped on this hillside in the centre of Bradford. We look forward to welcoming you.
    The Very Reverend Jerry Lepine
    Dean of Bradford
    An eventful year in the life of the Cathedral and City

    The Cathedral has three major projects starting this year whilst works continue on Cathedral Halls (The Brathay Trust) and Clergy House (Bradford Council). The Council’s Public Realm works (linked to Westfield’s new Broadway Shopping Centre) also see major improvements to the pavements and roads on Stott Hill and Church Bank.   More ...

    Any project is bound to cause some disruption at some point. Whilst the building and grounds will remain open for the duration, there will be times when vehicle access may be prevented and enjoyment of the peace and beauty of the site will be marred by noise and scaffolding. We therefore ask for your gracious forbearance at this time.

    Canon Precentor

    The Bishop of Leeds wishes to appoint a Residentiary Canon who will make a strong connection between worship and mission. This is a key moment in the story of a new Diocese, a City experiencing regeneration, a Cathedral with a new vision and a Choir with a growing reputation.
