The Dean's Welcome


Welcome to Ely Cathedral's website which I hope will give you a glimpse of the wonders and glories that the Cathedral has to offer.

The Dean of Ely
The Dean
The Very Revd Mark Bonney

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.

The skill of craftsmen and women down the centuries is here for all to see; the work of contemporary artists appears alongside that of their medieval counterparts, past and present working in harmony. There is space to sit and be still, to pray and to contemplate, as well as to be immersed in a tradition that continues to grow and change.

You will find a warm welcome here reflecting the hospitality and welcome of our Benedictine forbears and more importantly reflecting the welcome that God gives to us all in Jesus Christ.
