Dean’s Welcome

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

We are sad to be in the position of another lockdown, however the Cathedral continues to be open for individual prayer between 10.30am – 3.30pm Tuesday to Saturday, and 1.30pm – 3.30pm on Sundays. We will also continue to broadcast our services on our Facebook page. Services are not currently open to members of the congregation. Please do keep an eye on the Cathedral diary for up to date information on our opening hours and the services that will be broadcast. 

We continue to be thankful to all the team of staff and volunteers that are enabling us to continue to worship and welcome pilgrims to the Cathedral. We are following UK government and Church of England guidelines to ensure the safety of all.

This weekend we are grateful to our volunteer for overseeing the sound and visual broadcast of our Cathedral Eucharist at 9.45am and the Choral Eucharist at 6pm on Sunday 22 November, the Feast of Christ the King. Both these services can be viewed live on our Facebook page.

We are also pleased to be streaming our weekday Choral Evensongs, again accessible through Facebook. If you would like to volunteer to join the team taking responsibility for the streaming of our services, please do get in touch.

In line with the lockdown restrictions both the Cathedral Shop and Seasons Cafe are closed until 3 December. Seasons Cafe are doing takeaway boxes – please see their pages on our website for this week’s offering. 

All previous services are available here, including links to Morning Prayer and Holy Cathedral on Tuesdays – Fridays that is streamed. We endeavour to update these pages as often as possible but please do bear with us as we are working with a limited team who are working really hard.

Please check the Cathedral website before you visit to ensure there have been no adjustment to opening times.

We urge everyone visiting to continue to follow the regulations in place that have been issued by the UK government and carry out the social distancing regulations, following the guidance in place in the Cathedral; we are all in this situation together and we all have such a vital role to play to continue to protect ourselves and others.

Please continue to show kindness and understanding to others and we continue living with the current conditions together.

With every blessing

The Very Reverend Dianna Gwilliams
Dean of Guildford
