Our lives are made up of many building blocks. Our sense of who we are is made up of the people in our homes, other relatives, the people we work with, the community we live in, the people we have shared experiences with, our forebears and people we remember. These people are alike, but are also colourful characters of different shapes and sizes. We are connected to countless others and we are part of a whole. Like people of different faiths, Christians know they are part of the whole family of God's children. "I am because we are." You are welcome to explore your place in God's family at St Edmundsbury Cathedral.

 The ground on which St Edmundsbury Cathedral is built has been holy ground for over a thousand years. Every day of the year, Morning and Evening Prayer is said or sung and the Eucharist is celebrated. In addition, thousands of people come from all over Suffolk and beyond to worship God at special services throughout the year, which celebrate our common life and acknowledge our common concerns.
