Dean’s Welcome

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

We continue to be thankful to all the team of staff and volunteers that are enabling us to continue to worship and welcome visitors to the Cathedral. For further details of Services please visit our Worship page or the diary entry for that service. We are following UK government and Church of England guidelines to ensure the safety of all, whether it be staff, volunteers or pilgrims. There are limited numbers allowed in the Cathedral at any one time, so please be aware that you may need to queue. Please dress according to the weather. 

This Sunday, 1 November, there will be a Cathedral Eucharist at 9.45am and also Choral Evensong at 6pm. You will need to register for these services for Track and Trace purposes. Please click on the links for details of how to do this.

We are delighted that in addition to our Sunday services the Cathedral Choir is now singing Evensong three days a week, which all are welcome to attend. Please do join us if you can. Details are available on the Cathedral Diary.

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 note that on Saturday 24 October we are open for individual prayer only during these times due to the event in the Cathedral. Our current exhibition is The Batson Set Biennial Exhibition. This is running in the Cathedral until 14 November with an wonderful range of pieces to view or buy.

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 carry out the social distancing regulations and follow the guidance in place in both the Cathedral, the shop and the Cafe; 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
