About Bradford Cathedral

This ancient site on the hillside has been a place of Christian worship for nearly 1400 years, achieving Cathedral status in 1919. The present church dates from 1458 but includes elements from a previous 13th century church and even older fragments. It tells two stories: the Christian story, dating back to the seventh century, and the story of Bradford.

Tucked away in the centre of the city, in its peaceful garden setting, it is a jewel worth discovering. It is also alive with music, the arts, education and hospitality. Its community expresses a vibrant faith and active service, arising from the prayer and worship that are at the heart of Christian life.


The Cathedral's Purpose

The Cathedral's purpose is ‘Serving Christ and transforming lives through welcome, worship and encounter’, through our values of "Hospitality, Faithfulness, Wholeness'

When booking an event at the cathedral please be aware that priority is given for our services, and during our opening hours there may be people visiting or using the space for prayer.

For our current service times and opening times, please see our calendar.
