The history of Worcester Cathedral is the history of England

About Worcester Cathedral

Worcester Cathedral has been a place of Christian worship and prayer for fourteen centuries. The present building was begun in 1084 and is dedicated to Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Prayer and Reflection

Open for Worship

The Cathedral's first and foremost purpose, of offering worship day by day, goes on. We live-stream an act of worship daily on the Worcester Cathedral Facebook page, and are open for individual silent prayer and reflection during the national lockdown (11am-1pm). The 1662 Book of Common Prayer and Common Worship of the Church of England are used daily.
