About Us

Ely Cathedral is the Mother Church of the Diocese of Ely and the seat of the Bishop. We are an inclusive community that welcomes all people. We have a rich pattern of worship which is strengthened by our excellent tradition of choral music. 

Worship has been offered to Almighty God on this site for nearly 1400 years and the Cathedral continues to be a dynamic witness to the presence of God in the world, and of his love and care for each and every one of us.

At the heart of the life of the Cathedral is the ongoing patten of morning prayer, the Eucharist and Evensong. Prayer and worship are the bedrock of all we do. The style of worship tends to be formal using establised patterns of prayer to help us grow together into the mystery of God. All are welcome at Ely Cathedral.
