Guildford Cathedral is the People’s Cathedral - a place of welcome, worship, inspiration and engagement for people of all ages. There is no charge for entry. 

It looks like spring has finally arrived on Stag Hill, with flowers blooming and we are having lots of visitors during the nicer weather. During the school holidays we held an Easter Family Fun Day which was enjoyed by almost 100 children. There will be another Family Fun Day in the Pentecost Half Term.

Guildford Cathedral are delighted to be hosting an exhibition by the renowned ceramic artist, Ashley Howard, based at the University of the Creative Arts in Farnham, entitled Mediations (a project funded by an Arts Council Grant).  Rather than competing with the scale of the cathedral, Howard has created a series of sealed urns and one vessels, decorated with flashes of colour. He invites us to meditate on our hopes and memories as we pause and pay attention to the beauty of small things. In his own words, theses stations of Meditations is about ‘exploring space within space and the experience of specific spaces - and the resulting spiritual contemplation- something that is both intimate and immense.’  Further information is available from Canon Julie (who contributed an essays to the catalogue) or at
