Welcome to the Bradford Cathedral website. We are on the east side of the new Westfield development, just a few minutes walk from both of Bradford’s stations. The Cathedral is the oldest building in the City but it also has a wonderful 20th century extension. Ancient and modern. This photograph shows our new altar frontal for Lent, a contemporary design that picks up some of the Bradford historical skyline. During Lent we have a full programme of arts and music as well as beautiful Choral services on Sunday (10.15 and 4.00pm) and Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evening at 5.30pm. Why not make a pilgrimage to us this Lent and discover Bradford’s ‘hidden gem’ and spend a few quiet moments in reflection and prayer?

Journey with the Oppressed
This exhibition of Antonio Pacitti’s conte drawings and monotypes draws powerful parallels between the trial and execution of Jesus and the treatment meted out to prisoners and asylum seekers today.
Lent and Easter at the Cathedral
This year we are offering:
- a sermon series on Lenten themes
- a reflection on a set book, ‘Meeting God in Mark,’ by Archbishop Rowan Williams
Lent is about making space in our lives for learning more about the grace of God.
It is also a transforming pilgrimage of the heart and mind that culminates in the decision to renew our commitment to Christ at Easter. So the Lenten liturgies from Ash Wednesday onwards are stretching and invite us to get real with God and ourselves.
May I encourage you to make a plan for Lent, maybe even keep a journal, so that when we come to the Easter celebration you can appreciate the journey that you have been on with Jesus and the deep significance of the decision that you will take. Journey well!

First World War Fund - Bradford Cathedral State Gate Repairs
We are absolutely delighted that the First Word War Fund has given us this grant of £349,479 towards the repair and restoration of this piece of Bradford’s heritage. The Cathedral is keen to make a contribution to regeneration and this will transform one of the features in the centre of Bradford. The grant is an exception to the criteria for the Scheme but the Panel believed that it fell entirely within the spirit of it.
