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


Everyone is Welcome | Advent 2021

This year, Guildford Cathedral and The Diocesan Education Team have worked on a joint theme for our Advent celebrations culminating in the creation of two Advent Calendars and the Schools’ Christmas Art Exhibition. The ‘Everyone is Welcome’ theme aims to remind us that we are all loved by God and that one of our primary callings is to treat everyone we meet with love, kindness, compassion, and fairness. These themes run throughout the Bible and can be seen in the Bible verses displayed in our Cathedral Advent Calendar boxes located around the building, and also found on our social media.

Diocesan Schools were invited to take part in the Schools’ Art Exhibition by contributing a model or figure representing the theme of ‘Everyone is Welcome’. This could be showing everyone who was welcome at the stable for the nativity; a welcome in a school or local community; or a wider welcome to a global community, including refugees or those who may be homeless.


Go and explore the whole Cathedral to find the artwork and Advent Calendar boxes.

The Cathedral online Advent Calendar will be shared on our Facebook, Instagram and Tiwitter social media pages: 

The Diocesan Education Team Advent Calendar can be found online by searching ‘Diocese of Guildford latest collective worship’.
