Welcome to the website of the Cathedral Church of All Saints. All Saints is a place of gathering for glorious and inspiring worship. It is a place for quiet contemplation and refreshment in the heart of the city. It is also a place that equips people for service to the wider community. I hope that through these pages you will get to know the cathedral and its congregation and that you will know the warm welcome that awaits you here.

How does a Church become a Cathedral?
The word cathedral comes from the Latin: cathedra, which literally means “chair”. A cathedral is a church designated as the principal church in a diocese where the bishop’s chair (or symbolic seat of authority) resides. It is sometimes referred to as the “mother” church of a diocese.
