Welcome to Bradford Cathedral in the new Diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales.
This month we continue the celebrations by having three Enthronement services! The Bishop of Leeds will be enthroned in Bradford Cathedral on 17th July, Wakefield Cathedral two days earlier and Ripon Cathedral three days later. Together with ‘Le Tour’ in Yorkshire 2014 continues to be a very special year for us.
We hope that we shall have the opportunity to meet you at one of our services

A Pocketful of Psalms
An Exhibition by Vivienne Rowett
Opens Saturday 26th July
In this exhibition Viv has used the embroideries that she has created to illustrate the Psalmss, with the aim that the audience will be drawn to read the texts for the first time or again with some new and fresh thoughts. Thus she calls herself a ‘textile exegete’, ie someone who reads and tries to illuminate and explain, questioning the text by visual - particularly textile - means. This work on the Psalms is small and detailed, with ‘a lot of meaning per square inch’ because it is the result of Viv’s detailed study of the text using commentaries of all kinds, including reference to the Hebrew text.
