Welcome to Guildford Cathedral...

Public Worship

Public services and events have been suspended until further notice, following advice issued by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York.

Please read the Dean’s welcome below for more details.


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.

Ever present.

It is with heavy hearts that the doors of the nation’s Cathedrals have been closed as a necessary contribution to keeping all of us healthy and safe. During this season of Lent we are called to take on disciplines or practices which may be tough or uncomfortable and often through this new habits are established and healthier and more balanced lives emerge.

We can still worship, pray and read our scriptures together even though we cannot gather together in our beautiful building. To participate in Sunday worship on Palm Sunday you can download the Order of Service here, and the Facebook link to follow the service with our Clergy and Musicians is available here. Music and Thought for the Day can be found here.

We all look forward in hope to the time when it is again possible to meet together for worship, children’s activities and study.

If you’d like more information about support for the work of the Cathedral at this challenging time please get in touch.

The Very Reverend Dianna Gwilliams
Dean of Guildford
