During half term, on 12 February our Fun Day will be themed around spring and Valentine’s Day with activities including making a bookmark, designing cards, and creating a heart-shaped bird feeder. There will also be the opportunity to take part in our ongoing art competition focussing on the theme of peace, and the popular word-hunt will allow children to explore the whole Cathedral building. Entry to the Family Fun Day is free, but booking is essential. Tickets can be booked through Guildford Cathedral Online Box Office

From 1 – 30 March the National Monument Against Violence and Aggression will be visiting Guildford Cathedral. It is a 27ft stunning sculpture, made from over 100,000 seized blades, was specifically created to highlight the negative effects of violent behaviour whilst solidifying our critical need for social change. Not only does the Angel act as a catalyst for turning the tide on violent and aggressive behaviour, but it is also acts as a beautiful memorial designed to celebrate those lives who have been lost through these violent and thoughtless actions. During the month that it is in Guildford, there will be events, talks and opportunities for engagement not only here, but also throughout Guildford and Surrey, creating awareness to turn the tide on violent and aggressive behaviour. If you would like to know more about this monument visit our website. The cost of having this monument here is substantial, if you are able to help with this cost by making a small donation it would make a difference, if you can help simply go to our fundraising page or click the QR code.

On Tuesday 7 and Wednesday 8 March the BBC will be here recording services, one going out live and the other being broadcast on Mothering Sunday. You are invited to take part in this service in the congregation, for further details please check the Cathedral Diary

We are currently experiencing some staff shortages, therefore we are working on reduced opening hours for the Cathedral. Please do check the Cathedral Diary for our opening times during this period. Entry to the Cathedral is free, there is a small charge for Guided Tours. We look forward to welcoming you.

With blessings

The Very Reverend Dianna Gwilliams
Dean of Guildford
