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.
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.
SCAFFOLDING IN THE CATHEDRAL
For the next few months, while necessary work is being carried out on the North and South Aisle roofs, there is a lot of scaffolding inside the Cathedral.
Visitors, of course, are still extremely welcome, but please be aware that there is no access to the North and South aisles, the Crindau Chapel and St Luke Chapel.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE that from 3rd September 2017, Choral Evensong on Sundays will be at the new time of 5pm.
