• Welcome to the Bradford Cathedral website. The Cathedral is one of  Yorkshire’s  ‘hidden gems’. It is the oldest building in the City but it also has a wonderful 20th century extension. Ancient and modern. Visitors are constantly surprised and uplifted by this intimate and yet inspiring place of prayer. Since the first millennium Christians have worshipped on this hillside in the centre of Bradford. We look forward to welcoming you.

    The Very Reverend Jerry Lepine
    Dean of Bradford

    We are delighted to announce the appointed of Sarah Field-Blešić as our new Chief Operations Officer.

    Sarah will become part of the Cathedral team in June when she joins us from the legal sector after spending 16 years with top UK law firm, Irwin Mitchell. As a change manager and project manager, she has helped Irwin Mitchell implement a number of operational and strategic changes across the Business Legal Services Division.

    “This is a change from the legal sector,” says Sarah, “however I am excited about getting to know the team and working with everyone to help the Cathedral achieve its goals. I understand it is the Cathedral’s centenary in 2019 so this is a thrilling time to be part of the team as we prepare the community and the Cathedral for this special year.”
    Dean Jerry says “ We really look forward to welcoming Sarah to the Cathedral and being part of our team. She will bring significant experience and help us to build on the developments of recent years."
