Welcome to St Davids Cathedral

Since the 6th century there has been a church on this site. For the past 1500 years prayer and worship has been offered to God on a daily basis which continues to this day.

Take care, be safe, and we look forward to seeing you in person before too long. May God's steadfast love sustain us with his compassion and resilience, as we hang on through to easier times.
