Newport Cathedral

The Mother Church of the Diocese is Newport Cathedral of St Woolos. It is a busy and vibrant Christian community with a regular pattern of worship.

The Cathedral has a strong musical tradition, with a full choir of men and boys, as well as a girls’ choir.  It also has its own orchestra-in-residence, the St Woolos players.

The Cathedral sits at the top of Stow Hill and welcomes visitors throughout the week who wish to take time out to pray or simply admire the architecture of the building.

The Dean of Newport Cathedral is the Very Reverend Lister Tonge.  For more information about the Cathedral, please visit
