Welcome message from the Dean

Welcome message from the Dean

In line with guidance from the Government and the national church, the Cathedral remains closed for now. We are hopeful of reopening in early July. When we can safely open there will be much to see, do and be inspired by. There will of course be opportunities to be still, to reflect and to pray. There will, we hope, also be music, talks,  and certainly there will be pastoral care. There will also be candles to light, chances to explore this glorious place, and the assurance of a safe place to be.   Social distancing guidance will be very clearly set out. An enhanced routine of cleaning will be rigorously followed through.

Meanwhile, the website has a variety of organ music, pieces by Choristers and Vicars Choral, theology, talks on the saints, and the weekly Chapter Letter.  There are acts of worship. There are also breathtaking glimpses of the Cathedral and its precincts.  Enjoy. And come in July, all being well. You will be most welcome.

The Very Revd Dr John Davies DL, Dean of Wells
