The Dean, Joe Hawes

Welcome to a place of contrasts!

A building which stands on ancient ground, yet many of whose stones are still new.

A soaring space which can provide room for quiet and intimate reflection.

A place of grand occasion, which still aspires to be a simple tent of meeting for any who come in search.

A structured community which wants to make space to be truly inclusive.

A place of establishment rooted in one of the most radical movements in history.

A gathering of contemporary men, women and children whose lives are inspired by Jesus, who lived, died and rose again two thousand years ago, and still speaks to us today.

A place of stability, always on the move.

A place of simplicity, generous in hospitality.

A place of tradition, experimental in intention.

Welcome to St Edmundsbury Cathedral, poetry in stone, wood and glass, a community of living stones journeying together to the Kingdom.
