Welcome Message from the Dean

Welcome to Wells Cathedral

The church is sometimes accused of being sleepy or introverted. This website proves the opposite in relation to Wells Cathedral. The monthly newsletter, the Chapter Letter, and the Cathedral website all offer very clear evidence of a cathedral which is open, lively, engaged and active. What is harder to suggest in words is the prayerful heart of this place; every day hundreds of candles are lit here, myriad prayers are offered, and the music here seems sometimes to link us with the glories of heaven: this is a holy place.

So, welcome however you want to connect: here is a place for you and for so many.
The Very Revd Dr John Davies DL, Dean of Wells
