This role is an exciting opportunity to shape the mission and ministry of Hereford Cathedral and contribute to the leadership of the Diocese. Building on all that has been achieved in, by and through the Cathedral in recent years, the next Dean will lead the Cathedral Community in developing a common vision for its ministry in the city and across the diocese in a post-COVID world.


The next Dean will arrive in the Diocese of Hereford during a time of change and will be one of a number of new members of the Bishop’s Staff Team, working with the Bishop and other colleagues as they lead the Diocese focussed on their current priority areas of parish revitalisation, planting new congregations, and encouraging the mission and ministry of all the baptised.
