Welcome to Portsmouth Cathedral

Transformative worship, challenging discipleship, generous hospitality and prayerful engagement. That is what we are all about at Portsmouth Cathedral.

For centuries this building, the Cathedral of the Sea, has watched, listened and helped the people of Portsmouth navigate the passage of time. It has witnessed war and peace, famous marriages, been bombed and rebuilt and remains a building of greatness and simple enduring beauty. More than this it is a vibrant and lively community set at the heart of the city and diocese of Portsmouth, responding to the call of God to meet people’s needs and equipping the whole diocese to share the love of God in Jesus Christ.

Of course a website can only give you a flavour of what we are about and we very much look forward to welcoming you here so that you can experience our generous hospitality for yourselves.


The Very Reverend David Brindley
Dean of Portsmouth Cathedral
