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.
