Welcome to Chelmsford Cathedral

Although one of the smallest cathedrals in England, Chelmsford Cathedral is bursting with faith, spirituality, music, tradition, art, culture, diversity, inclusivity and welcome. You will find peace, serenity and holiness here, and you will find joy, community and a passion for social justice. 

This is your Cathedral - a cathedral for Chelmsford, a cathedral for Essex and East London, a cathedral for all people, a cathedral for you. 

The Very Rev'd Paul Kennington
