Mission Statement

The Cathedral exists for the glory of God and as a sign of His Kingdom in the world. To this end we are committed to offering a daily round of prayer and worship, ensuring that the Cathedral is

  • An instrument of God’s mission where the Christian faith is explored, practised, preached, taught and interpreted
  • A focus for the life of the diocese of Bath & Wells and the ministry of the Bishop
  • A sacred place where all who come are welcomed and valued
  • A focal point for the life of the city, community and country: a witness of God’s justice, peace and love
  • A place where the expression of God’s gifts of creativity is encouraged
  • A spiritual, musical and architectural inheritance to be conserved, enhanced and reinterpreted for this and future generations
