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. 

On 20 May we are looking forward to the Thy Kingdom Come Prayer Festival. Guildford Cathedral will be transformed into a beacon of prayer and worship as we gather with our brothers and sisters in Christ and, as one, pray for people to know Jesus Christ. Further details here.

We 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). There is still an opportunity to see this exhibition until 18 May. Further information is available from Canon Julie (who contributed an essays to the catalogue) or at www.ashleyhoward.co.uk

From 24 May eighteen visual artists and alumnae from UCA Farnham are set to open the vibrant exhibition, Standing in the Light, here at Guildford Cathedral on Thursday 24 May. The group, known as the KanKan Collective, has specialisms in large-scale installations using sculpture, light and sound. The exhibition, which is set to run until Wednesday 20 June, features miniature to large-scale works in sculpture, glass, installations, paintings, textiles, photography and poetry. Mary Branson, Artist in Residence at the Houses of Parliament and a UCA Farnham alumna, will open the exhibition at its launch event at 6.30pm on Thursday 24 May. She said: “I’m delighted to open Standing in the Light.KanKan’s work is exciting, diverse and an illuminating mix of ideas and influences that respond to the light-filled space of the cathedral.”

As part of our Pentecost celebrations, on 30 May, everyone is welcome to our half term family fun crafting morning in the beautiful Nave of Guildford Cathedral.  Try your hand at kite making or create other beautiful things, and don't miss exploring the Cathedral with our Stanley the Stag Treasure Hunt.  Crafting activities are free, donations invited to contribute towards the costs.  Bring a picnic and enjoy it in our extensive grounds or visit Season's cafe who also have some surprises in store for young visitors.  Shop, Treasury, Exhibition room and gardens open.
