For more than 900 years, Southwell Minster has opened its doors every day to welcome visitors, pilgrims and worshippers. We have placed hospitality in the name of Jesus Christ as being at the heart of what we want to offer the 100,000 or so people who come each year. As well as being a beautiful and fascinating historic building, Southwell Minster is a community of clergy, other workers and many worshippers, contributing to the public life and private lives of the town and the whole diocese.

A message from Dean Nicola Sullivan

The Christmas season is so easily overtaken by busyness and stress. Why not set everything aside for a while and join in the Minster’s worship, or enjoy a concert to experience the special atmosphere of peace and centuries of prayer?

Christmas celebrates the Christ child coming into our world to transform human life for all time with the love and light of God. It is a message of good news, rich with hope. The Cathedral clergy, staff and volunteers wish you a Happy Christmas!

A Christmas message from Bishop Paul

Speaking at the National Grid training centre near Eakring, Bishop Paul encourages Christians to connect with and distribute God’s power, hope and Light of Christmas as our nation votes for a new government.
