We are delighted to have the artwork from the schools throughout the diocese be in the Cathedral until Candlemas. This year the title of the work is ‘Prince of Peace’. Please do come and see this fabulous art, where the children have put so much effort into these unique pieces. When you visit, why not explore some of the hidden treasures we have? Our knowledgeable guides can answer any questions you may have and we have a variety of leaflets to explore any particular topic of interest you may have. The artwork leaves the Cathedral after 2 February, so do plan your visit now!

From 1 – 30 March the National Monument Against Violence and Aggression will be visiting Guildford Cathedral. It is a 27ft stunning sculpture, made from over 100,000 seized blades, was specifically created to highlight the negative effects of violent behaviour whilst solidifying our critical need for social change. Not only does the Angel act as a catalyst for turning the tide on violent and aggressive behaviour, but it is also acts as a beautiful memorial designed to celebrate those lives who have been lost through these violent and thoughtless actions. During the month that it is in Guildford, there will be events, talks and opportunities for engagement not only here, but also throughout Guildford and Surrey, creating awareness to turn the tide on violent and aggressive behaviour. If you would like to know more about this monument visit our website. If you are able to donate to the cost of having this here, however big or small please go to our fundraising page

We are currently experiencing some staff shortages, therefore we are working on reduced opening hours for the Cathedral. Please do check the Cathedral Diary for our opening times during this period. Entry to the Cathedral is free, there is a small charge for Guided Tours. We look forward to welcoming you.

With blessings

The Very Reverend Dianna Gwilliams
Dean of Guildford
