The Cathedral and Current Restrictions


With heavy hearts we have taken the difficult decision to close the cathedral building to visitors and members of the congregations. The rate of Covid-19 infection in Surrey is alarmingly high. We have been told by our Government and by Public Health England that we should all stay home except for essential journeys. We believe that in remaining open to visitors and members of the congregation we may, inadvertently, be communicating an ‘invitation’ to leave home.

Morning Prayer and Holy Communion take place Tuesday to Friday and are broadcast live. At 9.45am on Sundays we will broadcast our Cathedral Eucharist. You can download an Order of Service and join us from your sofa or armchair. We hope to be able to broadcast Choral Evensong twice a week. Please check back for up to date information. Links to the live stream for services can be found from the diary entry for that particular day or if you are watching later via the Home Worship page.

We are all disappointed that we have had to take this decision, and with the support of Chapter, we believe that this is the right thing to do in the current circumstances.

We all look forward to the time when we can be together in person.


Praying in the New Year

The Cathedrals of the Church of England are using this prayer as we enter 2021.

God of new beginnings,
of hope and deliverance:
dawn upon us with fresh opportunities,
equip us for new tasks,
fill us with eager longing,
thrill us with fresh starts,
that with the past behind us
we may look to all that lies ahead
with faith in Jesus,
hope in you.
and love for all.
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.


The Very Reverend Dianna Gwilliams
Dean of Guildford
