Dean’s Welcome

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

We continue to be thankful to all the team of staff and volunteers that are enabling us to continue to worship and welcome visitors to the Cathedral. For further details of Services please visit our Worship page or the diary entry for that service. We are following UK government and Church of England guidelines to ensure the safety of all, whether it be staff, volunteers or pilgrims. There are limited numbers allowed in the Cathedral at any one time, so please be aware that you may need to queue. Please dress according to the weather. 

On Sunday, 27 September, there will be a Cathedral Eucharist at 9.45am and also Choral Evensong at 6pm. You will need to register for these services for Track and Trace purposes. Please click on the links for details of how to do this.

This week, Tuesday 29 September sees a Choral Eucharist for St Michael and All Angels at 5.30pm, and Wednesday 30 September at 3.30pm there is a Choral Evensong which will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3. You will need to register for both of these services. On Friday 2 October there is a Choral Eucharist at 5.30pm. 

All previous services are available here, including links to Morning Prayer and Holy Cathedral on Tuesdays – Fridays that is streamed. We endeavour to update these pages as often as possible but please do bear with us as we are working with a limited team who are working really hard.

Stag Hill continues to welcome our visitors, Seasons Café is open 9.30am – 3.00pm Tuesdays – Saturdays, and 9am – 12noon on Sundays, you are able to dine in as well as take their delicious fayre away, the Cathedral Shop is open between 10am – 2pm Tuesdays to Friday and 11am – 3pm on Saturdays; as well as the Cathedral being open, Tuesday – Saturdays 10.30am – 3.30pm, closing at 12.30pm on Wednesday this week preparing for the radio broadcast, and Sundays 1.30pm – 3.30pm, for Individual Prayer for pilgrims, we are also welcoming visitors and are delighted that we have Jackie Parkinsons’ new exhibition Tree of Life and Open Heaven. For those who remember Jacqui’s previous exhibition with us, Threads through Revelation, you will know this new exhibition is not to be missed. The last day you can see this fantastic exhibition is Saturday 26 September, so please make sure you visit if you haven’t already done so. Next week we welcome our new exhibition from the Batson Group.

Please check the Cathedral website before you visit to ensure there have been no adjustment to opening times.

We urge everyone visiting to continue to carry out the social distancing regulations and follow the guidance in place in both the Cathedral, the shop and the Cafe; we are all in this situation together and we all have such a vital role to play to continue to protect ourselves and others.

Please continue to show kindness and understanding to others and we step into this next phase together.

With every blessing

The Very Reverend Dianna Gwilliams
Dean of Guildford
