Welcome from The Dean

300Sunday 4 December is the Second Sunday of Advent. The Cathedral Eucharist takes place at 9.45am and at 6pm we hold our Choral Evensong. All are welcome to attend these services which will be live streamed through our YouTube channel.  In addition to our usual Sunday Services, this Sunday at 3.30pm we have a special Christingle Service in Seasons Cafe, where all the family are welcome for songs, stories and Christingles!

We are delighted to have the artwork from the schools throughout the diocese be installed into the Cathedral for the Advent and Christmas Season. This year the title of the work is ‘Prince of Peace’. Please do come and see this fabulous art, where the children have put so much effort into these unique pieces. When you visit, why not explore some of the hidden treasures we have? Our knowledgeable guides can answer any questions you may have, we have leaflets to explore any particular topic of interest you may have, such as the Cathedral Glass, or contact our Visitors Team to arrange a bespoke guided tour, just for yourself or for a larger group.

Seasons Cafe has a wonderful range from coffee and cake through to lunches, and is the perfect place for a pre-Christmas catchup with friends, and the Cathedral Shop is the place for a lovely selection of cards and gifts.

Entry to the Cathedral is free, there is a small charge for Guided Tours. Please do check the Diary before you visit, as we are a working Cathedral and throughout December we hold many school carol services and sometimes there is a need to close or have restrictions to visits for some events or services. We look forward to welcoming you to the Cathedral.

The Very Reverend Dianna Gwilliams
Dean of Guildford
