Welcome to Worcester Cathedral's Community Pages

Welcome from the Dean

Worcester Cathedral is a magnificent sight as it rises majestically above the River Severn. Worcester has been the seat of a bishopric since the Seventh Century, and the Cathedral was served by monks until the Reformation. St Oswald and St Wulfstan were among the bishops. Since the Eighteenth Century, the Cathedral has been famous for its part in the annual Three Choirs Festival, the oldest choral festival in existence. Today the Cathedral is the centre of a vibrant community of clergy and lay people, offering the praises of God each day, serving the city and diocese of Worcester, and attracting visitors from all over the world.

Peter Atkinson, Dean.
