About the cathedral
Wakefield Cathedral exists in order to worship God and point others to him. We seek to help people live as disciples of Jesus Christ, and to share his love with the world. We are set in the heart of the city of Wakefield, and offer a warm welcome to all who enter or pass by our doors. We have made public our desire that everyone who lives in Wakefield District will come inside at least once a year. We try to give priority to people who are needy or disadvantaged. We hope to be a place of conversation for people of all faiths and none, and a cultural hub in the city centre. And as the Mother Church of the Diocese of Wakefield, our intention is that everyone in the diocese will feel at home here, whether coming for a major diocesan event, or in a parish group, or on a private visit.
