Blackburn Cathedral is one of England's newest Cathedrals, yet it is one of the country's oldest places of Christian worship.
For many centuries, this has been the Parish Church of Blackburn dedicated to St. Mary the Virgin and it is now the Anglican Cathedral for the Diocese of Blackburn (The Church of England in Lancashire). For the full history of the Cathedral click this link.
It continues as a place of prayer and worship and is at the centre of the Diocese. It shares in the Diocesan Vision 2026: Healthy Churches Transforming Communities.
Cathedral Court is the spectacular new extension to the building which was opened by the Archbishop of York in 2016 and plays host to offices for Cathedral staff and tenants and also has rooms available for hire. Find out more.
