Guildford Cathedral is facing a significant funding crisis.
Please donate to help keep the cathedral open for everyone.

No, I'd prefer to donate another time


Welcome to Guildford Cathedral...

services on Sunday 31 October

You will need to download the order of service onto your tablet or phone, or print off before the service. The Eucharist Service can be downloaded here and Choral Evensong can be downloaded here. There will be no printed copies so it is essential that you do this.

All Saints Day 1 November and All Souls Day 2 November

The order of service for the Choral Eucharist on All Saints Day can be downloaded here and for the Choral Eucharist on All Souls Day can be downloaded here

We encourage those attending services to continue to wear face masks. Singing is now allowed by any members of the congregation wearing face masks. If you are uncomfortable with others singing around you please sit towards the back of the Cathedral.

We are working hard at addressing the issues which have called a temporary halt to our live-streaming of choral services. We look forward to being back on-line very soon. Thank you to all for your patience and understanding. All are welcome in person and service times can be found here. Our said services will continue to be broadcast.


Welcome from The Dean

Sunday, 31 October the Fourth Sunday before Advent. There is no need to book for services, but it will be necessary to download the order of service, these can be found at 9.45am Cathedral Eucharist, and the 6pm Choral Evensong.

As we move into November, at 7pm on 1 November you are welcome to join us for Choral Eucharist for All Saints Day and on 2 November Choral Eucharist for All Souls Day. All are welcome at these services.

We are sorry that we are temporarily unable to stream or broadcast any of our choral services. All are welcome in person and service times can be found here. Our said services will continue to be broadcast via our YouTube Channel

Details of all our services and opening times are on the Cathedral Diary please do check there for the most up to date information. 

The Cathedral is usually open to visitors Monday – Saturday 10.30am – 3.30pm, and Sundays 1.30pm – 3.30pm. The Cathedral Shop is open Monday – Saturday, 9.30am – 3.30pm, and Seasons Cafe is open Monday – Saturday 9am – 3pm and Sunday 9am – 12 noon. We are a busy working Cathedral and sometimes there are special events that necessitate a closure – details of these will be on the website.

Until the end of November we have a fabulous exhibition curated by our staff and volunteers celebrating 60 years of the Cathedral – there is an opportunity to see the cope worn at the consecration of the Cathedral and other items from our archives that are not normally on display. As our Diamond Anniversary year continues, watch out for the services and events celebrating the Cathedral, Guildford and Surrey. We hope that you are able to join us for the celebrations. 

We are still facing difficult times with the Covid crisis, and encourage all visitors to the Cathedral, whether for the shop, services or using the grounds, to continue to follow the Covid secure regulations that are in place for your own safety and that of our staff and volunteers.

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

The Very Reverend Dianna Gwilliams
Dean of Guildford
