Welcome to Bradford Cathedral. I’m the Very Reverend Andy Bowerman, the Dean of the Cathedral, and I want to extend you a warm welcome to our Advent and Christmas services and events during the coming weeks.

As ever you’ll be able to follow our star on top of the tower and find your way to this hidden treasure at the heart of the City.

Throughout the Advent season there’ll be all sorts of exciting opportunities for you to come and, not just engage in worship, but explore the Cathedral, join in some of our many events: there’ll be carol services, there’ll be mince pies, and mulled wine – all sorts of ways that we want to generously welcome you into your Cathedral at the heart of this City.


We are open today from 10am - 4pm for visitors

Today's services

9am - 9:30am - Morning prayer (also online)

12noon - 12:15pm - Midday prayer

5:30pm - 6pm - Evening prayer (only online)

Mr Buzzard, who died last year at the age of 95, left every Church of England cathedral a bequest in his will, alongside a short report of his visit to each one, which he did over a 10-year period. He visited Bradford Cathedral in December 1997, as the final Cathedral on his pilgrimage.
