Christian faith can be summed up like this: "God is. God is as He is in Jesus Christ. So there is hope." These truths are of great importance in our lives today with all the pressures we live under. Our focus on possessions makes it so easy to forget God. Our need for instant communication makes it difficult to hear God's voice. The challenges we face as a global community make it is easy to despair and give up hope. The good news is God has not, does not, and will not give up on us. God is the cause of life, the way to find new life, and the reason for living. You are welcome to discover more about what that means for your life 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.
