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

•           Enabling the Cathedral to be:

– 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 and 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 our city, county and country: a witness of God’s justice, peace and love

– a place where community is fostered

– 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

– a good steward of its financial, human and physical resources.
