At the heart of Wells Cathedral is the daily pattern of prayer and worship, the rhythm of which forms the framework of all that we do.

Well over 1000 services take place in the building every year and people from all around the world find it an inspiring space in which to worship. Services take place every day and range in style and length from very simple acts of worship to larger, more ceremonial occasions. These are open to all and if you are a first time visitor from this country, or from abroad, you are especially welcome.

In addition to its daily round of services the Cathedral celebrates major festivals and Saint’s Days and follows the church calendar beginning in November/December with Advent, followed by the times and seasons of Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, Ascension, Pentecost and Trinity.
