Welcome to Rochester Cathedral - a place of Christian worship since 604AD.

Here women and men have brought the things of earth to touch the things of heaven; their joys and sorrows, the ups and downs of ordinary life.

Here, in the beauty of holiness, the finest that humans can muster has been the offering of the faithful.

Here there has been a welcome, based on the Benedictine tradition that every guest is “as Christ” to the community who gather here.

It is our prayer that through this website and when you visit us in person, you will find these principles lived out day by day in the life of the Cathedral.

The Very Revd Dr Mark Beach
Dean of Rochester


Rochester Cathedral is open-minded space...
where people meet God unexpectedly
in formal ceremonial...
...and community events
in moments of wonder...
...and at times of celebration
in quiet and stillness...
...and in shared exuberance
If there is glory in the cathedral, it is a reflected glory
Rochester Cathedral is open-minded space...
