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
Take a right out of the West Door, go past Prebendal House, and turn left down a track through the trees. It brings you out at a weir on the River Taff, where seagulls bob and herons stalk. But fifteen hundred years ago, you would not have needed to walk so far to find the river. It flowed about a quarter of a mile to the east of its present course, almost alongside the current Cathedral building. A hundred years after the Romans left Britain, and a hundred years before St Augustine arrived, Dyfrig founded a community here, following a new and foreign faith, near where a path – already ancient by Dyfrig’s day – forded the river. We don’t know much about Dyfrig, but as you wander the paths between the Cathedral and the river, you cannot help thinking that he chose the spot well.
