Llandaff Cathedral is a Christian gathering of the Church in Wales, which is a province of the worldwide Anglican Communion. It is also the seat of the Bishop of Llandaff. The Cathedral is a focus of pilgrimage and spirituality in the Diocese of Llandaff and for the City of Cardiff. Our purpose is therefore to worship God and share the gospel of Jesus Christ. In so doing, we welcome all who come here, irrespective of gender, race, creed or sexuality, in order that we might share and pass on our rich Christian heritage and the joy of Christian faith.
Thought for the Week
Scaffolding enters the choir stalls. From stone floor to wooden ceiling, intricate towers of metal poles and wooden planks are swathed in white plastic sheeting, secured at the base with matching white gaffer tape. Hard hats, harnesses and high visibility jackets gather near the stalls, with buckets and brooms, crates and clamps, close by. Wadding and padding protect the stonework, and a plywood board displays the work schedule, health and safety notices, and project information. A plastic chain, in red and white, marks off the work area at the foot of the concrete arch supporting Jacob Epstein’s aluminium sculpture of Jesus. Epstein’s Jesus – by tradition a workman – hovers contentedly in the middle of it all, open-handed.
