Guildford Cathedral - a warm-hearted community open to God, open to all.

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. 

Last weekend we begun Advent with our Cathedral Choir singing the Advent Carol service, which I am sure all who came along found to be a wonderful service.

This Sunday, 9 December, we have our Nativity Fun Day which is an afternoon of child-friendly Christmas themed crafts. Whilst you are here, why not to enjoy the incredible display of over 200 nativity figures, hand-crafted by pupils from 46 church and affiliated schools around the Diocese of Guildford.  Children are invited to pick up a copy of a free trail to enable them to discover these beautiful characters from the story of Jesus birth displayed all around the Cathedral. These will be on display until the first week in January, so do come along to see this fabulous art.

All the family are welcome to visit the Cathedral. There are tours available for adults, and also special interest tours for children of all ages - please ask the Guides for help with suitable activities for your child.

The current What's On is now available, with details of activities happening November - January. 

We look forward to welcoming you.

With all good wishes

The Very Reverend Dianna Gwilliams
