Welcome to the website for St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast. We hope it encourages you to come and visit our beautiful Cathedral, to worship with us or to visit as a tourist, to meet others at a special service of celebration or commemoration, or to step inside as a pilgrim, a friend, or a neighbour. Here you will discover beautiful works of art: mosaics, textiles, carvings and many historical artefacts; but above all this is a place of prayer at the heart of the city. Here we aspire to offer Anglican worship with care and sincerity. A daily cycle of four services a day is maintained throughout the year. Many of our services are enhanced by the singing of our choirs. People of all faith traditions are welcome to join us. The Cathedral is open for private prayer from 8am to 6pm on Monday to Saturday and from 8am-4pm on Sunday. There will always be a quiet area available. The Cathedral is open for cultural visits on Monday to Saturday from 9am-5pm (last audio tour at 4.30pm), and from 1pm-3pm on Sundays. It will be closed to visitors during services, some of which may be at short notice.
Dean Stephen Forde
