Wells Cathedral Values

Wells Cathedral Values

All our values are set in the context of the Christian belief and ethos of the Cathedral:


We seek to discern what God is saying to the world today and, by living with hope, demonstrate God’s love through the welcome, support and hospitality we show to all who come to the Cathedral.

Evolving Tradition

We celebrate a living connection to our historical roots in such a way that enables us to develop and evolve tradition as we face the challenges of the current and future generations.

Creative Excellence

We are committed to excellence in all we do through creativity, innovation and working to high standards that include respect for each other and compliance with external regulation and internal policies.


We actively seek to work together with colleagues both staff and volunteers, and with outside bodies with whom we share a common vision.


We seek to promote an understanding of our faith and heritage through a commitment to learning.
