Dean’s Welcome

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

Our Building might be closed to keep us all safe – but we are all here.

Alleluia! Christ is Risen!

‘We are Easter people and Alleluia is our song’, wrote St Augustine of Hippo and with Christians around the world we celebrate new life in Christ. In all the prayer which carries on despite our closed building we are remembering all who are going to work for others. Our Cathedral continues to be lit up in blue light on Thursdays as our nation marks our gratitude to them. Seasons Café and Restaurant has opened the kitchens at the Cathedral in order to prepare delicious meals for staff at Royal Surrey County Hospital so that they can pick up a fresh meal to take home at the end of their shift.  All the food is being provided through crowdfunding – so thank you to everyone who is making this possible.

In our isolation the Cathedral Team have been working together to continue our pattern of Sunday worship as far as possible.

On Sunday 24 May Morning Prayer will take place, the link to the service and YouTube live recording can be downloaded here I do hope you will be able to join us All previous services are available here. We look forward to welcoming all into our building in due course.  As difficult as it is to remain at home , especially as the weather continues to improve, we are all in this situation together and we all have such a vital role to play, whether we are on the front line, or doing our bit indoors.

Alleluia! Christ is Risen. He is risen indeed.  Alleluia.

The Very Reverend Dianna Gwilliams
Dean of Guildford
