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



We are currently seeking volunteers for all roles. 

Guildford Cathedral is a sacred space and a community of people who engage with God and the wider world for the common good.  

We do this by being a warm hearted community open to God, to all, to growth and to transformation.  Over 100,000 visitors come to the Cathedral each year and our Cathedral ‘community’ comprises thousands who feel close to the Cathedral because of historical connections, their families purchase of a brick in the 1950s, their membership of the worshipping congregations or staff and volunteers.

The Cathedral is led by the Dean with the Cathedral Chapter which is akin to a Board of Directors of charity trustees. The Chief Operating Officer leads the small lay staff.

Volunteer School Workshop Assistants

Guildford Cathedral welcome new volunteers from all kinds of backgrounds, age groups, all faiths or none.  We provide a friendly, supportive environment, in which volunteers are invited to contribute their skills and to grow in confidence and competence.

We are looking for people to help the Head of Family Engagement and Schools in our School Workshops.  You will be sharing learning opportunities, stories and treasures of the cathedral with children and young people through guided tours and activities.

All volunteers working with children are DBS checked, in line with safeguarding procedures. 

Commitment is flexible with a choice of regular or one-off sessions.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact Julie Mitchell, Volunteer Co-Ordinator, on 01483 547 885 or email
