Newport Cathedral is a busy, active and attractive Christian community and place of worship.  It serves as a parish church, as well as the Cathedral for the Diocese of Monmouth; thus the Dean is also the vicar of the parish of St Woolos, and its daughter church, St Martin-in-the-Gaer.

There is a regular pattern of services, to which all are warmly welcomed.

The cathedral is situated on top of Stow Hill overlooking the city of Newport.  It is of very ancient foundation, and has a long and fascinating history.  The building itself, open daily, has much architectural merit which provides a rewarding experience for visitors, as well as a quiet space for private reflection or prayer.

There is a very strong musical tradition at Newport Cathedral, with a full choir of men and boys, as well as a recently-formed girls' choir.  The Cathedral also has its own Orchestra-in-Residence, the acclaimed St Woolos Sinfonia.
This is enhanced by a programme of concerts and other events, open to all.

                              NEW CATHEDRAL WEBSITE

Thursday 27th June:    Our new website should be 'live' within the next few days  -  with many new features!
This will be on exactly the same URL  -  in other words you won't need to go searching
for it. It will be right here, in place of this one.

Notice:    the Ordinations, on Saturday June 29th at 11am, will be taking place
at St Mark's, Gold Tops, in Newport, and not in the Cathedral.

Cathedral Floor 

We must apologise for the protracted inconvenience caused by the works on the Cathedral floor.
This has made it necessary to close off the South Aisle, including access to the Cathedral Shop.

We are glad to report that work has now begun to level up the floor and the screed has been poured..
With luck and a prayer, the floor will have been restored by the end of August,
and normality will be resumed!
The picture shows the floor as the present works were about to begin.
