The Friends were established in 1933 to further the work of the Cathedral, as a House of God and as the Mother Church of the Diocese of St Asaph.

The Friends hold a yearly Festival Service, Lunch and Annual Meeting and regular gatherings in other churches throughout the Diocese.

In support of the Dean and Chapter, the Friends have made significant contributions towards a wide range of projects including:

  • the organ restoration

  • conservation of textiles

  • interior refurbishment

  • commissioning of the Dean’s cope

  • production of the official guidebook

  • provision of new chairs


Members are kept up to date with the work of the Friends through an Annual Report and have the opportunity to purchase specially-commisioned Christmas cards.

In joining the Friends you will be a member of a wide-spread group of people who have the satisfaction of knowing that they are making a real contribution to the life of the Cathedral.
