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

The Cathedral is open for visitors between 8am and 5.30pm every day.

On Wednesday 6 March Ash Wednesday marked the start of Lent. This year the Lent Talk's theme is Christ in the Wilderness. There are talks on Thursday 14, 21 and 28, beginning at 8 pm followed by Compline sung by the Lay Clerks at 8.30 pm in the Lady Chapel. The titles of each of the talks are 'Stones and Bread', 'If you are the Son of God' and 'Kingdoms of the World'.

For those wishing to observe the Rite of Reconciliation (Confession) during Lent, or those who would like to have a Spiritual Conversation, full details are available on this here.

This week and next we are delighted that we have six school workshops in the Cathedral, and are welcoming Surrey Get Vocal on Thursday 14 March, which will end with a concert at 4pm that all are welcome to attend.

All the family are welcome to visit the Cathedral. There are tours available for adults, and also special interest tours for children of all ages - please ask the Guides for help with suitable activities for your child.

Our services are listed here and everyone is welcome to attend them. The current What's On is now available, with details of activities happening March - April.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Cathedral.
