It embraces areas from the heart of urban Portsmouth to the rolling hills of the South Downs. Our churches range from beautiful historic Saxon and Norman buildings to modern, purpose-built centres. Our cathedral (left) is located in the heart of Old Portsmouth. Our worshippers are involved with innovative mission, social justice, effective discipleship and serving their local communities.
