Lichfield Cathedral was founded in AD 700, one of the earliest in the UK and a religious and historical site of great importance. It serves the fifth largest diocese in England, covering towns and cities such as Tamworth and Stoke-on-Trent, and a rural area stretching to the Welsh border. Our Strategic Vision 2014-2023 sets out one of our key roles as ‘a place of discovery, learning and nurture’ as well as a place of worship and tradition.
Lichfield Cathedral is called to live and proclaim the transforming love of God. Through the fullness of its life in the Spirit, it seeks to be a sign of the friendship and freedom that God in Jesus Christ has given the whole world to enjoy.
Lichfield Cathedral aims to:
- To make new Christians by reaching a new public.
- To develop partnerships with the diocese and the Cathedral School.
- To nurture Christian faith, worship and understanding.
- To maintain, repair, conserve and adapt the Cathedral fabric.
